Default Sam Bennett is a Beast

Why can't this guy play lights out in the regular season? What does it take for this guy to move to line one?

Don't be fooled, it only looks that way because he's playing with a bit of effort whereas the rest of the team decided not to show up.

Francis actually had a clever tweet earlier tonight -- said he's playing so well we shouldn't demote him to the top line.

Glen Gulutzan did the damage. Bennett will break out the day we trade him, not a day before.

This type of game is hard to maintain for an 82 game season.

I cant tell if Bennett is playing well or the rest of the team is so bad they're just playing on Bennett's level

A bit of both, I'd say.

He has three primary assists, a goal, at least a few takeaways, and probably should have a secondary assist on the Brodie goal (but doesn't seem to) across twelve minutes a game over three games. To go with the letter-worthy intangibles.

You get that from someone playing 12 minutes a game you should be up 3-0.

it's time to play him back at centre and away from ahl tweeners, why does the organization refuse to acknowledge this

Wow Bingo.

That certainly passes the eye test for me in terms of what I've seen from Jankowski and Neal.

Can you run the figures for the DAG line?

If the eye test holds up on that as well, I'm thinking Jankowski and Neal need to be stapled to the 8 minutes a night club.

Jankowski is sitting at a xGF% of 26.7%. That's terrible. Neal is back of him at 33.9% which isn't good either, but a step away form his center.

Bennett, who has had most of his time with this pair is the 8th best player on the team at 44%

Bennett without both players is 67.2%
