<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>drmantalban</b></div><div>That's fair - I'm not sure I understand why FLA would hockey trade Bennett for Greenway or Dumba, but I am probably overrating Bennett. I watched him a lot last year, bc FLA was so entertaining and thought he was pretty impressive. But that's also looking like a bit of an outlier season for him and I haven't kept up with their team as much this year.
If it's consensus that he's sorta teetering into bloated contract territory, or at least at risk of it, then I'll admit that I'm out of the loop on that.</div></div>
It's kind of like Christian Dvorak. Is the contract bloated for what he really is? Yeah, slightly. But it's not offensive, he still definitely has value to the right team. Especially a team like Minnesota (if we could find a way to afford him), who could play him in their top six and he'd put up 50 points. Not an ideal solution but definitely a viable one.
Greenway has no offensive production this season, and he's never been a good goal scorer, but if he were a center and you put him with Kaprizov, he'd probably get to ~50 points as well. The last two years he was a 0.5 ppg player because the GREEF line had the offense going. He's not any worse this year, other than the injuries, it's just his line doesn't have an unsustainably high shooting percentage anymore. They're of a similar ilk to me. Middle six players, not line drivers, but capable complementary pieces.
