He had a very good season offensively so we'll see what he can do once he comes back, but I'm not sold on his upside just yet, needs to improve in his own end and get stronger. He could easily be higher but with him out for either the entire season or much of it, hurts as guys like Beaulieu, Tinordi, Ellis, and Pateryn all could be in Hamilton next year, which could make ice time hard to come by for some, since we have St-Denis, Nash, Mitera and Stejskal plus Kishel could be signed, along with Nygren if they want to bring him over. I am a Cornell fan though, so hopefully he can get back from injury and do well.

With the Big 3 I expect them to put up points wherever they play as they can all create offense, but can finish as well.

Bennett has impressive skills and is developing a solid two way game, the main concern I have though is his frame/lack of strength but he should have a couple years to work on that. Surely he's a prospect Hab fans should keep an eye out for down the road although with Beaulieu and Tinordi in front of him it would be understandable that he does get overlooked and that could actually work to his favor in time.



Leblanc has the smarts and better all round game. Kristo I think he could play on the 3rd line and not really hurt you, and his speed helps him cover mistakes in his own end. For me I have Leblanc higher because I think he's a much smarter player and while he doesn't have Kristo's great speed, imo he's got much higher hockey sense to go with a higher compete level. If Kristo reaches his high end potential (say something like a Michael Ryder but much much faster) I still don't know if he will be as good as I feel Leblanc could be.
To me Bournival is a whole lot like Leblanc. What stood out when I watched him is the fact that he's always near the puck, always involved and in your face.

Fair enough about Leblanc vs Kristo. I respect your opinion as you've seen Danny more often than me.

I haven't seen Bournival that much yet, unlike Leblanc who I have seen a bunch of times over the years. What I did see this year though made me start to think his offensive game could be right up there with Leblanc/Gallagher/Kristo, so if it is then great for us as you can see his defensive game is already there along with good physical tools (strength, skating etc.)
