"He's getting more comfortable," Crosby said of Bennett. "It just takes time, but he's got the skill set and he's shown it at different points. As long as he keeps learning, he'll keep getting better, and I think being put in that position is going to allow him to do that the fastest. But he's doing a really good job there."


unfortunate about his wrist though

I haven't heard anyone say that he has any permanent damage. Just residual weakness - so at a minimum we get the same player next year with a better shot.

Beau needs to learn to suck up to the coach and mention him in the same breath as Ray Ferraro. :lol:

I think Eddie Johnston is the only current Penguin older than me. :cry:

I think Adams is the only pen older than me. Oh, and Vokoun

Edit: Cooke and Dupuis too, but Dupuis is cutting it close

Right. The injury was only his most recent season, when has still at DU. So, like he says, he'll have a full off-season with it pretty much already healed, so he can work on getting it to 100 % more or less for next season. I wouldn't be surprised if his shot has a bit more zip on it the season after next as well, for that very reason.

In fact, Brodeur, Jagr, Khabibulin, Ray Whitney and Alfredsson are all older than me, too.
