“My strengths are my shot and my skating and I know I’m capable of bringing that offensive element to the table,” continued the Alfred, ON native. “It was maybe another story in the playoffs, but I think I started to show that a bit in the regular season. This year was a great learning experience for me.” Canadiens.com, June 6 2010

Reading this quote just confirmed what I've seen and what I expect from Benoit. When he gains some weight and a little more speed the opposition is going to be facing a bigger threat from that line than last year.

Just stop poncing about and play a simple, direct game please, Benny.

You've got a great shot so..........

That great shot will beat goalies much more often if you're near the paint when you take it, too.

A good season now could set you up for a very financially-rewarding career, along with the fringe benefits that being a hockey hero in Montreal would obviously bring.

Benny has got to take a good long look at his linemate Gionta and style his game to mimick his, hard in the corners and straight to the front of the net. Just imagine Benny's size with Gionta's style of play, he would be a BEAST!

He'll mature. He'll take it up a notch this season. The young dogs are barking at his heels to get in, and with quality linemates like he has to play beside, he'll grow. Rush that net, dig them corners Benny, it only hurts a while, the W sticks all season long.

Except for those stretches when Gionta stops going to the net and starts taking long unscreened shots from just inside the blue line. Brian has his own problems with consistent net presence. Granted, on our team, his net presence makes him Tomas Holmstrom, but he does have slumps where he gets boxed out of the dirty areas way too easily.
