If he doesn't look out of place and, even better, he looks really good, we should keep him up.
But at the moment, I don't see a hole on the team. If Tambellini starts to falter(which I hope doesn't happen, I like the guy, but history tells us he is inconsistent) or we get another injury in the top six, Hodgson could be the guy coming up.
I still think 4th line centre is a bit of a black hole, but I wouldn't put Hodgson there until at least after the trade deadline. By the time the playoffs roll around, however, it's about having the best line-up on the ice. If Hodgson is still playing out of his mind, he joins the big club. He's already done the AHL playoff thing anyway.
