Question about Benn?

Who was your 1st line center this season (2011-2012). Having a debate whether it was Ribiero or Benn because I heard Ribiero played with eriksson and Ryder primarily.

Benn was the #1 in the sense that he was the better player, but Ribeiro was the #1 in terms of ice-time and the players he got to play with.

Heck, Steve Ott had more ice time per game than Benn. Our coach didn't exactly have the most dazzling rookie season.

Pretty much this. We didn't really have a #1 center, more just a 1st line with our 2nd best center on it. You could make a solid argument for either of them.

Benn is 100% the #1 center going into next season, though.

Benn played significant time with Eriksson and Ryder in the 1st half of the season as well. When he got injured Ribeiro got his chance again and got hot. Benn could carry Ott and Burish while Ribeiro couldn't, so he was playing on the 2nd line.
