There were loud whispers that Hovinen quit trying to work his way up after bad preseason + being sent to Trenton.Wasn't a question of talent
I was lucky enough to have a conversation with Bill wherein he told me exactly this, which explains a few comments I made awhile ago. Aside: Bill is super nice and has forgotten more hockey than I know. I was wondering when this news would hit the fan.
