Safe pick when compared to Beach maybe. Hodgson and Beach have roughly the same level of upside, different playstyles though. Beach with slightly higher upside but much less likely to reach it. Hodgson slightly less upside and more likely to reach it. Plus with character qualities and hockey smarts.
Also not sure how Hodgson has 2nd line upside, when there are tons of people saying his upside is more.
The Province need to stop being Beach homers.
I wouldn't waste my time trying to figure them out...if we'd picked Beach, they would have complained about us not selecting "the higher rated, more well rounded Hodgson". Bunch of idiots.
