Hodgson's play was a pleasant surprise all things considered. Doesn't have enough experience though for the team to hang their hat on for the playoffs.

Definitely light at the end of the tunnel - will be on the team next year and with Malhotra, will fill the 3rd/4th line centre slots behind two of the best in the NHL.

Boy do you learn a lot about players seeing them at the NHL level. Its pretty much all speculation until they get to the show. So what Gillis is doing calling guys up and giving them a trial by fire is totally the best way to do it.

I could still see him getting traded but it would have to be as part of a package for an elite linemate for Kesler - and no, we are not talking Kris friendly Versteeg.
More like a Parise. Otherwise, the upside of who we'd get would in all likelihood be outweighed by Hodgson's future contributions.
