Benson has the tools to be an effective forward on any line. Assuming his injuries are behind him, he is pretty much a lock to have a long career. He is the smartest prospect we have, highly skilled, and maybe the best defensive forward.

Every other prospect has question marks as well but none offer the complete package of Benson.
I really like him, but I'd need to see a 100% healthy season before I'm all aboard the Benson train.

Like you said though, his IQ is off the charts. Footspeed needs work but I can't see it holding him back. Only question is health.

I golfed this year with a friend and former teammate of Benson. He says he's healthy and the injuries were freak things.
