There's a very good chance that Beau Bennett's performance will dictate what the Penguins do with their situation at the wing.
Bennett was recalled to the Pens and will debut Friday night. He's never been the biggest scorer, but the 21-year-old is a playmaker. He had 18 assists in 25 games at the AHL. If he impresses, general manager Ray Shero can use his assets on trading for a blueliner, instead of a winger, come the trade deadline.
