Yep. He passes the eyeball test in that he's making smart passes, getting to high scoring areas, and working with his (more talented) linemates. Sure, on a different line maybe he has half the points, but Vanek and Pommer might be, say, 5 points lower themselves with a lesser pivot. Hodgson isn't the driver for sure, but he's not a passenger either.
