BUt for this year for sure keep him in the AHL. Keep giving him top 6 minutes in the AHL to develop his offense until he gets eligible for waivers, and then test him out where ever in the NHL. He could possibly fit anywhere up and down the lineup.

I can't disagree with that. Although, Daugavins is a 4th liner at best. How does that make Hoff a top 6 guy? If you are that small and playing in the top 6, you better score like a son of a B#$*h. I don't see that in Hoffman.
Sure Hoff may be able to replace Daugavins or Condra. The problem I have is people constantly putting him in a top 6 spot. Maybe he can do that on a weak team, but I have higher expectations for the Sens!
I would love for him to take that next step this year or next and prove me wrong. I just don't see it happening.
