His skill level is not at a level where he can be a selfish player. Hodgson impressed me with his improvement in this area. He used to very rarely take contact to make plays. In the game I watched he did that consistently. That is leadership, a quality both those young players need to develop.
I was there live and I'll tell you right now, Hodgson looked like crap. He was invisible the whole game and the only reason I noticed him was when I zoned in on him specifically. He looked small too, smaller than Kadri. Buffalo's in deep **** if Hodgson is their 1st line center
