Yeah, I think AV's press on Hodgson's turn on defense contributed as much as anything in his souring as well as his souring turn with management I think Gaunce has a 50/50 chance to sour on them as well. If he is coddled and I hope he is I can see him being a Ryan O'Reilly, 40-50 point-player for us and essentially our Jordan Staal which will be crucial in a playoff match-up. Hopefully I'm wrong about Brendan.
