Jordie Benn vs Brenden Dillon

Hey guys I haven't been able to catch much GDT talk so far this year so I was wondering who of the two you guys think has been better so far this season.

Dillon seemingly had a spot locked up before training camp whereas Benn probably benefited from the Fistric trade. That being said I've been really impressed with Benn so far this season and for my money has looked more comfortable then Dillon

Anyway just curious as to if you guys feel the same or think Dillon has been better


*side note: With two Benn's on the team now it's getting confusing so I submit we call Jordie JoBe (GOB)... He is the less talented older brother after all

I'll take the sissy way out and say theyve been pretty even. Neither has hurt the team much but neither has really been much positive either. So for me theyve both just been acceptable.

Both have shown bright spots and both have been tentative and made silly mistakes. Hard to say.

I think Benn has looked smoother with the puck, although that is more his game than Dillon's. It is close though, and both are preferable to Rome.

Benn's made some mistakes, but overall I thought he's played pretty well. Especially taking into account this is his first true year in the lineup and he's already playing in all situations. I'm a Dillon fan, but I take Benn by just a hair.

Dillon has not been good with the puck and not as reliable defensively as I hoped. Sad when larsen is the physical part of that duo. Benn has been a great surprise. His first pass has generally been excellent and he has been more physical than Dillon. Decent on the second pp. A few mistakes but pretty tidy generally I thought. This team needs Olesiak though now. Robidas can be traded for the obligatory #3.

In Dillon's defense , Larsen has not really been great either and Daley is abetter partner and player so benn has that going for him which is nice...

In my eyes Benn has clearly benn better but that isn't because Dillon has looked bad. Benn has made mistakes but he has been good on the PK, decent on the PP, and seems to be able to retrieve and clearly pass the puck out of the defensive zone with some ease. The latter isn't a trait we have seen all too much the past couple seasons outside of Goligoski.

Dillon has been much better positionally, he's more physical, and he makes a better first pass out of his zone. I just don't see Benn as an NHL defenceman.

Both seem pretty even so far, but by the end of the season, I expect Dillon to be on top.

I give the edge to Jordie Benn who has played many tough minutes shorthanded and at even strength over Brenden Dillon, who has been somewhat sheltered at even strength. I basically see their performance as roughly equal but Jordie Benn's done it under tougher conditions.

Seems to me that Benn is being trusted more by the management and thus is starting PKs and getting some harder opponents to wrestle with..

We'll see if the pairing stick from now on, Dillon I think made a good pair with Robi and Benn is just the anchor with Daley flying infront of the line..

Benn has been on the ice for something like 90% of the goals against.

What hockey games have you been watching? Larsen more physical than Dillon. Benn more physical than Dillon...
