Why are we sheltering Hodgson? The guy has shown at every level he's a big game player. What he's shown in his limited time here is that at the very least, he's a defensively responsible player. I don't think he's gonna take key draws with a minute left, but he can center a 3rd line in the NHL.

yes, I agree.

Doesn't seem like much of a point keeping him in the AHL. Better off bringing him up, finding him some good linemates, and see if they can get some scoring out of his line. Feed him the easiest minutes, with Kesler and Lapierre sharing Malhotra's defensive work load.

this is certainly the impression that i get from the situation. and it makes some sense.

but at the same time, i have some real reservations about the way they're going about this. IF there are some lingering doubts as to whether Lappiere will be able to carry the load in that 3rd line C role, and a sense that they *might* have to bring Hodgson up to give it a try at some point...i'd rather see them do the audition process in the opposite order to what they seem to be doing.

ie. bring Hodgson up now and see if he's going to be able to fill that role, in a situation where he has time to adjust to an NHL role. if he can't, nothing lost really...you're just back where you started with Lappiere filling a role that he *has* played in before and he's basically the only viable option left on the table.

given the timeline in terms of limited games remaining...it would make a lot more sense to me to bring Hodgson up for a go right now, rather than just throwing him straight into the playoffs if Lappiere isn't working out or whatever.

but that's assuming there's any chance of Hodgson coming up at all (which could be a bit of a leap). so *sigh*, oh well.

just seems to me as though Hodgson offers a lot of potential upside that *should* be investigated. sure it's risky because he also offers a whol lot of potential downside if things don't work out...but what have they got to lose at this point, really?

Hodgson was poor on the draw, only 38.1%. With the way the 4th line WAS playing with the addition of Higgs and Lappy, we need someone to keep that momentum going. Bolduc may be the most ready to do that.

My Homer view: The Moose have 9 games left and are jockeying for playoff position and need Cody's awesomeness to make a strong push into the postseason.

More realistic view: Rookies stole AV's lunch and now he will exact his revenge by crushing Cody's hopes and dreams.

I wouldn't read too much into the lousy percentage at this point, it's a very small sample size (42 draws taken). I don't see how someone with his talent/work ethic combined with Manny's lessons (he's clearly schooled all the centres on the team) couldn't improve that with more time in the show.

As Sara Palin would (presumably) say, ******* the Moose, if Hodgson can help the Canucks then he needs to be playing in the NHL.

Also, about this word "realistic" -- I do not think it means what you think that it means.


edit: Why does the letter F followed by asterisks get censored into just asterisks? Is the first letter that dangerous?

IMO this is what lineup we should be looking at going into the playoffs:

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Higgins-Kesler-Samuelsson
Raymond-Hodgson-Hansen
Torres-Lapierre-Glass

Bieksa-Hamhuis
Edler-Ehrhoff
Salo-Ballard

Luongo
Schneider

lol I thought you dropped an epic swear word. Yes, in my homer view, once Cody singlehandedly delivers the Moose the highest possible playoff seed, he jets to Vancouver to save the day. And then does a massive backboard shattering dunk.

Will Daniel ever really know for sure that he's the father?

What if the kid grows up to be more of a setup man than a scorer?

I want to see this asap as well. I don't understand the delay of calling up Hodgson. Moose don't play until Friday and you'd want Hodgson up to speed. He uses up a call-up, oh well. We need him right now rather than a guy who separates his shoulders on draws or a make-shift centerman coming off an injury.

Shift the shut down responsibilities to Kesler again like last year and the 3rd line will attempt to be more an offensive line. For those complaining about Hodgson's speed, he is lined up with the 2 fastest skaters on our team, which should cover more area in the defensive zone.

CH has yet to show he can produce in the NHL.

Yeah I'm not entirely sure I agree with his prioritizing. Stupid birth control using Steve Stamkos.

But Bolduc and Oreskovich have?

1 goal and 1 assist in 8 games seeing very limited minutes on the 4th line isn't bad. How is CH going to show he can produce in the NHL unless he receives minutes?

Neither has Bolduc outside of a handful of shifts last year. And that wasn't producing, just showing he could play. But at least Hodgson has the upside to surprise and has consistently shown some intelligence out there.

This is the perfect chance for him to play with some talent (rather than centering Oreskovich and Glass) and some minutes.

Outside of being caught up ice a couple of times and labouring back (rookie judgement errors), I didn't see Hodgson's lack of speed as a liability.

The other thing with Hodgson is the above comment about his character. He has shown the ability to elevate his game when it matters. That counts for something.

He'll win the Art Ross. Stamkos won't catch him unless he decides to take a week or more off.

Any guesses on how long Bolduc will last before the next injury?

Hopefully when he does get injured, he does it in practice, instead of in game.

Once again the team will play with 11 forwards for the remainder of one of his games. Like he normally does.

Well, so far in his career he's had the following stints in the NHL before getting injured:

09-10: 7 games (shoulder injury); 8 games (shoulder injury)

10-11: 1 game (ankle injury); 18 games (shoulder injury)


Maybe we should be taking bets to see how long he lasts before his shoulder goes out again.

Well, I guess Daniel now has to win the hart, art ross, conn smythe, and stanley cup for his new baby.

Anything less just isn't satisfactory

and he's really ont that far behind for the richard too.

Yeah, the only thing keeping me from being annoyed about Hodgson not coming up is the likelihood of Bolduc being on IR within a handful of games.

Stop hating on the Duc. He is clearly a better option than Hodgson right now. We need someone that can skate and get in on the forecheck. That is not Hodgson.

Am I mad?

-No; but I am worried that he could miss the 100 point mark? Yes I am, I think Daniel has the Art Ross locked up unless Stamkos goes on a real tear. I just hope he gets to the century point because Henrik did it last year and I like symmetry!

But being present for the birth of your child is far more important, so congrats to Daniel and his wife.
