Just find it humorous that the Bender thread only rears its head whenever he has a good night. Which hasn't happened since mid-June...
Bender's a nice player, but won't be more than an average to slightly above average producer for a few years. A bargain for 2-3 seasons without a doubt (if he sticks in the bigs) Just think of the meltdown that would occur here on a nightly basis if we ever did trade away a superstar type phenom!
