I think he is almost there, he has the potential, and he has the ability to be the #1 Center for the Stars. So I think he will be a top 10 center in the NHL soon.

He's been there for about two seasons now. He's their most important player. Stupid question.

fact 1: been there for 3 seasons. Get your facts straight.

fact 2: didn't realize that Eriksson wasn't more important. You would of thought he would of been ranked higher than eriksson here.

fact 3: I asked yes, no or close. choose one of the options or keep your mouth shut. great answer by the way by not answering the question.

fact 1: ''there'' = #1 centre. Read the post I responded to

fact 2: Stars fans could answer this, but I suspect they consider Benn more important, could be wrong

fact 3: I did choose one of the options. Now does that give me the right to open my mouth?

Yes.

A lot of people don't know just how good Benn is. I hate the term, but he definitely is underrated.

He's got a mix of size, strength, and skill that not many players can match. He's another Rick Nash/Evgeni Malkin. He isn't as good as Malkin, obviously. but I expect PPG out of him soon and he is a very unique talent.

Yes.

As for who's more important to the Stars of Benn and Eriksson, it's really a toss up.

Since Benn plays center, it's probably him, but Loui's fantastic two-way play definitely puts him up there.

I think, at THIS moment, it's hard not to choose Loui, but after next season, it'll probably be easier to say Benn.

He scored 63 points in 71 games despite:

Being the 4th forward in PP TOI on the team.

Having to get primarily defensive zone starts for 1/2 the season once Gulutzan lost faith in Riberio defensively.

Playing a checking role with snipers like Adam Burish and Steve Ott.

An still ended up with one of the best ES ToI/G behind only Eberle and Malkin.

Yea I'd say he's a #1 C

Didn't even realize he was a center. Always thought he was a LW.
