It takes a lot of pressure off Girgensons to step in and contribute immediately, though, and I wonder with Hodgson, Porter, etc. if they start Zem's at wing.
Or they could play him at the correct position in the correct league.

Amerks center depth is now Hodgson-Porter-Varone-Sundher-Tarnasky-Schofield, plus there's Adam.
Hopefully Girgensons is a victim of the numbers game.

The only other thing he said on Hodgson was during the online chat with Steve Bartlett where he relayed that Regier told him he was hesitant to send Hodgson down because he spent all of last year in the NHL.

Anyway, good on the Sabres for sending him down, it was the right decision.
Just going off what you said two days ago.

I stopped reading his garbage long ago, thankfully.
