Bennett's goal was just cruel. I couldn't believe he actually pulled it off.
I thought Syracuse was getting a little nasty at points. Penguins powerplay was kind of flat. I would have liked to see MacIntyre take someone aside and sort them out if they weren't going to get revenge with a bunch of goals.
If the NHL ever plays again then they've GOT to put Bennett with Crosby.
In 2013-2014? Yes. In 2012-2013? No, not a chance. He doesn't have the strength yet to play in the NHL. And there is no reason to rush him. As I said before, he will probably get like 5 games just to give him experience.
Yeah. Zero chance Bennett plays in the NHL this season, and I'd keep him down in the AHL for a full year next season, too. That is, unless he has an absolutely insane camp and blows the coaching staff out of the water.
Bennett has 15 points (5 goals, 10 assists) in 19 games played. That's good enough for 7th in the A for rookie scoring. Over 82 games, that's 64/65 points with 27/28 goals which would be the 2nd most points all time for a WBS rookie. If Bennett keeps up this pace, only Toby Petersen and Matt Murley would either outscore Bennett or outpace him.
