I prefer Thrower and Dietz over him.

I don't expect much from him.

Both are right handed so he won't compete against them most likely.

Thrower & Dietz are right handed, Bennett is left handed.

Indeed, I've been following his SoundCloud for a while now.

So he's an NHL defensemen? Yeah Bulldogs must be infuriated that he's likely joining them.

Seriously tho he was highly rated some time ago, I'm surprised some people act like he's obscure. I know some here are very high on him, and he's known to have serious wheels. Intriguing prospect imho.

Same here actually. Bennett's long shot is shorter after today however.

They bring a totally different package. Of course, those 2 bring the toughness that Bennett doesn't have. But frankly, I would say that I prefer Bennett IQ over the other 2 even if I like Dietz very much. And while I'm not too sure how Thrower will develop.

If we're lucky, Thrower might develop into a Radko Gudas. But I'd say that he's probably one of the 3 with the least chance at graduating....not saying he won't though. His year this year was awesome to see. For Dietz....well too soon to tell with the season he had this year. But then, we will have to wait as Bennett do have 3 years over those 2 guys.

I'll see how he turns out before expecting much. Heard many over hyped on here before. Danny Kristo to Louis Leblanc

What's the latest news on Thrower and Vail? Will they be offered a contract or no?

They both showed clear improvements this season, especially Thrower, and Vail showed some offensive potential.

Major logjam on Hamilton D next year.

Pateryn, Tinordi, Bealieu, Ellis, Dietz, etc.

I think Ellis is ****ed for next year. It could be a good idea to loan him to a team with **** defense.

No chance.... Ellis is not leaving soon. Tinordi won't see any AHL games next year IMO. Schiestel and McIver are out at the end of the season. The only question mark to me is Chouinard who I think is playing very well for Hamilton this year. Any chance they get rid of Drewiske?

Beaulieu-Ellis
Bennett-Pateryn
Chouinard-Dietz
Thrower

Well Nygren could possibly be back. Ellis has been in the dog house this year and his progression in the last two seasons has been nothing spectacular... We have a lot of defenseman and I think it'd be good to send Thrower to the ECHL next season.

Nygren will never ever return back to Hamilton, its either MTL or Sweden.
We did not watch the same games this year, to me Ellis have been a rock defensively before the big collapse of the last 2 weeks. His progression have been very good this year compare to last year...

Yeah but he'll be behind Pateryn next season and I wouldn't be surprised if Dietz surpasses him next season due to his offensive abilities. Didier's mobility (who plays a similar game to Ellis) might give him the nod too if the organization sees Didier replacing Ellis once his ELC runs out.

Yeah I re-worded that sentence because I figured it could be confusing.
