Beau Bennett – On a team that relies largely on veterans, it will be tough for a young player to break out.  However, there is also a long history of injuries in Pittsburgh, and the player most likely to take advantage of one of those inevitable chances is the speedy and skilled Bennett.  Bennett had 14 points in 26 games with just over 12 minutes of ice time per game.  the availability of chances might stunt the breakout, but if there is going to be one on the Pens, Beau is as likely as any player to do it.
