    Loooooooooool @ that cover

    Kid should be a star one day. He's right up there with McDavid for hype.

    So 4.42 PPG in the regular season of Bantam AAA and only 3.36 PPG in the playoffs? Obviously a playoff choker.:sarcasm:

    I'll have to check him out in person. Used to be an avid Giants fan back in the Sexsmith, Lucic, Kane, Franson, Wacey 'Best Name in the World' Rabbit days.


    Ahhh, those were the days.

    That headline is ridiculous. No 15 year old should have his name and expectations linked to those players.

    I'm pretty sure the Vancouver Giants like the coverage they are getting. When was the last time they made the front pages of the paper?

    He's a 15 year old kid. He can't even drive. He was born in 1998......

    That's a ridiculous headline regardless of his skill and potential

    Wow 15. Sweet way to set him up for failure with that pressure. So he can't play in world juniors until he was 16 I'm assuming.

    Benson is not another McDavid, and he's sure as hell not another Crosby. He's just not. He's an excellent prospect with huge potential but that headline from the Province is just absurd. Most of the realistic stuff I have read on Benson is that he's basically a more talented Brayden Schenn at the same age. Hyping him up as the next one will only lead to disappointment from your average hockey fan. I wish the kid all the success in the world, I just hope the hype doesn't get to him.

    IIRC, Bob McKenzie said he translated well as a WHL star, but not necessarilly as an NHL star. I'm curious as to what made him say that (it was on his Twitter when the Giants drafted him).
     
  22. between the hype for this kid and McDavid i wouldnt doubt if either lives up to it
     
  23. still too soon
