I think this is an optimistic but very unrealistic and unfair expectation to put on a player who has yet to play a full season of pro hockey. Hodgson is simply not ready to anchor a 3rd line on a cup contending team. If he does get playing time, it will most likely be on the 4th line with very sheltered minutes.
