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.

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.

I wonder...


Could Benn’s nasty be of the same use to Hughes as Myers’ nasty?


Hughes can’t move without nasty protecting him. I mean obviously he can.


But when there’s nasty on the ice when Hughes is on, seems teams think twice before taking liberties.

Was he any good tonight?


Yeah he was pretty stable and dependable alongside Oscar Fantenberg.  Probably the best d pairing tonight.


He looks far more poised and comfortable on his off side.
