YES, go for Benson. We need a forward more than Clague, though Clague sounds like he's pretty damn good. With Popoff, Stukel and Baer coming up the system, we need that big forward. 5'11", 190 at 14 years old only means that he still has a ridiculous amount of time to fill out. Could end up being 6'4", 225.

I was kind of hoping with Sean Day available we'd take him.

Seems like an electrifying kid, but I'm sure Benson will do just fine.

Sean day was granted exceptional status in the ohl priority draft. With that said there's 2 great options in benson and clague

and I'm 10 years older than you....but I still have hope. Maybe someone, somewhere needs a fat middle aged guy who can't skate to take a beating in front of the net on the PP.

Johnny Bower won a Stanley Cup at 46. When that birthday came and went without a phone call, I knew I'd better go ahead and get my Grade Ten.
