I don't know if Hogie pissed someone off or what but he sure has earned a shot in Manchester if you ask me.
I know what he is capable of and from what I was told and the very little I saw of him in Manchester last year and in the prospects tourney and training camp this year, he wasn't cutting it.
I hope they were sending a message and he is called up soon. He has a ton of upside and when on his game is close to being NHL ready.
