Hodg has been very up and down at the NHL level in his own zone. Skating has been his problem.

Obviously not expecting Lindberg to be as productive as Hodg (who I expect to be a 65-70 point player), but I think he definitely has some untapped offensive upside.

A 30 point shutdown C would be awesome, though.
