If Hodgson becomes the player he should become, you likely won't.

True, but we really need to add quality to at centre. Hopefully this turns the trick.

This Gillis era truly begins today. Is it any coincidence that a guy we actually talked about here was actually drafted with Gillis at the helm? He obviously knows how smart we are.

This was definitely a Ryan Walter pick.

His maximum potential is someone like Mike Richards isn't it? Very conflicted right now, drafting a potential hometown hero would be a dream come true.

Thank the gods.

Hodgeson fell into our laps. He is a heady player. I'm so excited about this pick. True we could've went for Myers or Beach, but I'm glad Gillis valued intelligence over the surrounding attributes.

The biggest criticism of Richards going into his draft was that he wasn't particularly quick, especially for a guy who was on the small side.
