Jordie Benn | #4 | D

Recommended Posts

I just remember multiple times where he was on the ice with the Pettersson line and it was painfully obvious that he couldn't make a play besides shooting wildly.

I was expecting a bit more wild man out of him...sort of a Kass thing only milder.  Maybe it's the beard, I don't know.  Just thought he'd play with a bit more edge.

I think a lot of fans thought the same thing.

He's never been a huge physical presence. 

He's simply what JB said he signed him for. N experiences, versatile veteran on the blue line.

Whether or not he stabilizes our dcore is yet to materialize though.

Canucks are 9-2 without Benn in the lineup.  Not saying that's the reason we've been playing better but Stecher does look more solid when not playing with Benn.

I think we'll want this guy in the lineup if/when the playoffs happen.  He's not particularly noticeable in the regular season, but guys like this tend to earn it in playoff hockey.

If it was any other year, Canucks would be lucky to have this guy. We usually have more injuries it seems. To have Benn just in case or ready for playoffs is a positive not a negative.

A friend of mine who is a HUGE Montreal fan (just puked a little) was harping on me when the Canuck's signed Benn.  He said he is overrated and glad they didn't re-sign him.  I don't mind Benn's game for $2M over 2 years.  Pretty safe and the depth is always needed it seems. He can play both sides.  I did expect a bit more bite.
