I know we all liked the complain about the lack of minutes Hodgson got (myself included at times) but I think if you've watched his play this season (which is better than last btw) it's easy to know why that wasn't possible. They couldn't give him more minutes than they were because it would involve removing the protection they were giving him. He would have been eaten alive in those additional minutes. That was why they saw the need for Pahlsson...someone who they figured they could trust to not get victimized. I'm sure they would have loved to have a Jordan Staal type instead of Pahlsson to have a two way presence but that wasn't going to happen.
