If the Leafs acquire another defenceman at the deadline then yeah I mean him and Benoit would need to share the 6/7 spots. I'd give Benoit the leg up if I had to pick right now but Keefe could certainly decide to go with the veteran instead.
It could also come down to who the Leafs pick up. If it's someone like Carrier or Dumba then Benoit's size/toughness would still be more of a need on the blue line. If it's someone like Tanev or Lyubushkin then maybe not.
Regardless it's very likely both would see playing time at some point in the playoffs.

Looks like he was trying to John Tavares* it on the back half of his PP shift while the other guys changed, tried to spring Timmins who had no speed, and then tripped over a skate.
* 1v3 to open up space for teammates, but usually results in a blueline turnover
