Justin Hodgman of the KHL

Heard that he played on the Marlies just 2 seasons ago.

Eakins was very high on him when hour coached him calling him the most fundamentally skilled player on his team other then kadr

What do you all think of him?

Your typical scrub. Hope he has a successful KHL career though. His NA numbers are just not impressive at all.

If he is considered the best non European in the khl he is definitely. More then a scrub imo


Some are just to eager to dismiss a player so they look bad ass

I'm an anonymous person on the internet -- the last thing I'm concerned about is how "badass" I look to other anonymous people on the internet

31 points in 51 KHL games aren't exactly blowing me away. One good season in the SM-Liiga does not a top 6 centre make.

His ice time was cut because he played on a team that had maliki n kuleemin and later Ryan o'rielly

I'm not that impressed.. looks like a boom or a bust kinda prospect.

Maybe give him another shot in the AHL but he's played for 10 different teams. Perhaps it's a personality issue. If he's that good, why hasn't anyone given him a shot?

(Mike Zigomanis, Joe Colborne, Philippe Dupuis, Darryl Boyce) = not exactly your all-star center depth.

I'm not knocking on you or him. I think there's probably hidden european prospects out there. Look at Fasth!

I'll eat my words if he joins the NHL and becomes a 50 pt center.

I liked him when he played for the Marlies, but... It must be noted that he finished the season with less points and goals the Kulemin despite playing 15 more games. Kulemin is solid, but hodgman doesn't really strike me as third or fourth line material and I do not think he is going to score in the nhl

if any other team not named the leafs picked him up.. he would put up 70 points in the NHL

if we picked him up, he would put up 40 max lol.. just the luck we have.

Anton Slepyshev?

Haha, nah, but the KHL is a helluva league. Nothing wrong with being a successful KHL player -- still a hell of an accomplishment.

Hmm he obviously will make more money in the khl and be set for life
or make a 70 K in the ahl as a undrafted prospect

Since that article was posted back in November he's lost Malkin and his numbers have dropped.

Komarov put up comparable KHL numbers and can't score in the NHL but Komarov does other things well like agitate/forecheck that give him a role as a 3rd/4th liner.

Unless Hodgman can be very good at one or two of the following like kill penalties/agitate/fight/faceoffs/shoot out specialist/etc. he wouldn't have a role on this team. If your not a scorer you better be very good at something else like Komarov/McClement/Orr are.
