Hogue peaked at 4th on his team in scoring despite this, and Plekanec has led his team twice and been 2nd one.
According to Benoit Hogue, Benoit Hogue could have been a lot better than Guy Carbonneau, so doubt it

Seriously though I was really happy with the articles I found on Hogue's intangibles, I think he's a perfect third liner in this setting. Agreed though Plekanec is on a different level defensively. Offensive Plekanec is probably better too, but Hogue's offense should stand up well compared to other third line wingers, I think.
