It's amazing he only had 1 G before Sunday's game. Looking at his shot totals it looks like he's shooting enough especially the last few games. I feel like Benn, being a more reserved guy, takes time to acclimate himself and feel part of a new team. I'm sure it's normal, but until he's comfortable you don't see him consistently do what we all know he can do. Even though I don't watch Benn with Hamburg (damnit), I would be willing to bet he has looked slightly reserved like he did with Canada at the Worlds this Spring. When he did put himself in position to score he would. 3 goals on 3 shots to start the tourney but it took him 3 or 4 games to accrue those chances. It's almost like he felt he had to give the puck to Sharp or RNH (and it's slightly understandable) or whoever, and never played to his strength or PF style which IMO requires that he be slightly more selfish to create plays and to be at prime effectiveness. Again, judging by his shot totals lately, it would indicate he's starting to play his game and I expect him to be on the business end of goals instead of piling up secondary PP assists.

Indeed, he is not playing at 100%, but he acclimated well and quick. So far he just had bad luck with hitting the iron or unlucky bounces, the shot totals were there from game 1. He slightly looks reserved, but I guess thats just him. He has fun on and next to the ice, just look...(next to former Canuck Brandon Reid)



Well, no more words needed...

On Sunday he was for the first time in a german televison show called "Sport Club", the host asked him if he want's to stay in Dallas because he is Free Agent(I think he didn't know the difference between unrestricted and restricted) and Jamie said yes of course.

The other interesting question was what Jamie says about the speculations that he can earn 6Mil $ if the new cba is released. He had a big smile and answered there are a lot of rumours in the moment We will see!

Lol, he does look relaxed, maybe too relaxed. Maybe it's the opposite of what I thought. 2 games a week and all that delicious beer and German girls around. We want him back you know!

Probably belongs in the Diaspora thread now. But only 1 point in a 7 goal game.. I'm disappointed Jamie

Looks like he's got his legs under him now though and is dominating like he should be.

Next game, 5:2 win and yet a again just one measly assist for Jamie, he's stuck in a big slump!

(had a really good game, made strong plays and was on the ice for 3 of the 5 goals)

Pictures of Jamie Benn are the silver lining to this lockout.

The people offended by/questioning Benn's character by his quote about liking to stay under the radar in Dallas on the main board are some sad kind of people.
