I have no problem with D'Agostini not making the team. From everything I've read about him, unless he's scoring, he's not giving you anything else. I don't even remember seeing him so far in the 1st other than getting stick-checked by a 40-year old goalie.
The Chicago commentators are really complimenting Bennett. A lot.
That's because they don't suck. Best Duo in the league, arguably. Pat and Edzo are easy to listen to.

I meant the shot didn't have a lot of mustard on it and was deflected besides. But Khabibulin definitely not sharp tonight either. Both goals were pretty soft by regular season standards.
Bennett could hit top 10-20 this year if he spent it with Geno and Neal.
Bennett with Malkin and Neal would be 60 assists guaranteed per season (not this year, but when Bennett develops more). I'm kinda thinking I'd rather see Beau with Geno and Neal in the long run tbh, it just seems like they work well together. Too bad Sid, the 2 wingers we got for you are going to Geno
