    Default B Bennett, E Lindholm, or Niederreiter?

    Keeping Soderberg, Kuznetsov, Fasth and Kuemper as goalies are worth an arm and a leg in this league. Standard cats who do you like between the 3 in the title?

    I can keep them on the farm for 164 games so advantage Bennett/Lindholm (least games played). Multi position is nice and I am stacked @ C so Bennett>Neids>Lindholm. From this standpoint Bennett seems like the clear choice but, factor in injuries and will Bennett be on a scoring line or will Downie steal the gig leads me nowhere. Top 6 role in Minnesota is Coyle or Neiderreiters but after last season has me thinking it's Coyles to lose although Neids had a very strong bounceback year. Lindholm is intruiging but Carolina isn't an ideal situation and who knows how things will pan out, seems like a lot of question marks with how things will shake out there.

    Not the biggest deal but would like some input. Thanks all.

    Lindholm is the best of the three....keep him. Ya you're really strong at center, but you want to keep the best player imo. If nothing else Lindholm can be trade bait to a rebuilding team. It's very likely he sees good time in the top 6 this season, and saw top unit PP minutes at times last season.

    I think Lindholm too.

    BB is halfway intriguing but they have some decent wing options/combos going into this year and Im not sure he gets a real top six opportunity. That and the fact that Pittsburgh has never developed a scoring winger for their top six in like forever.

    Lindholm- but Id keep on eye pn BB

    I say Bennett with his draft position and youth still gets every opportunity to play top 6 which either will be Crosby or Malkin which speaks for itself. Bennett also is familiar with new coach Johnston which may give him a slight advantage. I don't see Downie getting that slot over Bennett!

    The other factor is Dupuis and Kunitz age as Bennett will replace one of them eventually. More upside for Bennett as the Pens will put him in every position they can to succeed!

    Just researched Johnston and Bennett's relationship and although he never played for him said that Bennett and Johnston were neighbours for several years and him and Johnstons son were close friends. Interesting if that plays into anything.

    Lindholm is by far most talented and he already has a top 6 spot locked up for next year....hes best out of this group by a wide wide margin for me....
