This problem could have been solved since day 1 of training camp signing Brendan Morrison. Morrison playing on the 4th line brings face-off ability, PK ability, speed, experience, leadership, and can fill on the top 3 lines in case of an injury. He could have also centered our 2nd unit PP. For only $725K and no assets required to boot!

What a bonehead decision. So much for wanting a "tough" 4th line and going with the scrub Bolduc that worked so well . Not only would Morrison fit admirably, but would let Hodgson develop in Manitoba playing 18+ minutes a game.
The only thing Morrison will do is to help Calgary miss the lottery pick this year, i am more than happy to see that happen.
