He's putting up points (which is nice) but at what cost on the defensive side of the game? The younger Oiler players are similar to Hodgson. When they have the puck, they are fine. It's when they need to be responsible defensively, that the problems show up. It's a maturation process, that most young players go through.

Hodgson had poor possession numbers... those oilers do not. That doesn't mean they're playing great defence but it does mean they are creating offence at a faster rate then they are giving it up.
