I completely agree with MS.

The argument that he wasnt' given good linemates to play with in the NHL doesn't hold water because he probably was with the Moose and didn't produce there either. Probably even more damning: he led the Moose with a -12. In comparison, Shirikov was +9, even Bliznak was +14.

It should be a given that Hodgson have an outstanding camp to make the team.

On the comment about AV and each player needing a bottom line, I completely agree with this - this is a change for the organization and a good one at that. If the team had a weakness last year, it was a lack of diversity of skill - too many of our forwards played a similar game - strong forecheck, backcheck, strong two way players basically.

Team has brought in to camp some different players in that regard:

* Sturm, Jensen - can score and make plays
* Mancari, Nolan - big forwards
* Pinizzotto - versatile 4th liner who can skate, score and fight
