However Adams performance was the result of finding soft spots in dzone coverage. Hodgson's game is about driving the net and opening ice for Pom and Vanek. Hodgson is quite literally an entire league better than Adam in drive and talent, expecting him to decline is just plain basking in self misery. Alternatively if you think being a PPG player is somehow diminished because of your linemates then I'll just shake my head and continue. Hodgson has looked like a young top 6 center and eventually he will deal with the slumps like Adam did, however I doubt he will crumble the way Luke did.
