He's not big but he's not classically small.

He may or may not be durable, that's still up in the air

I thought he played really well last night. One of the few bright spots. Hopefully he can keep it up.

I missed the game cause of hockey but watched the recording just so I could get a glimpse of Hoffman. Hopefully, now that we've all seen him we can dismiss the ridiculous notion that he has horrible hockey sense. Sure he may not always make the right decision, but he knows how to get into scoring areas. A couple here made him out to be Schubert2.0 & that's just not the case.

Yup. I don't ever recall seeing him fly around the ice like he was last night.

You could tell the offensive instinct is there, I have no doubt the points will come.

His best NHL game by far, good for him. I am his harshest critic but watching him live he was noticeable. I mentioned in other threads that Ceci made himself noticeable, Boro made himself noticeable, and now Hoffman made people pay attention. I think that game was a huge confidence builder for Hoffman, probably made him believe in himself that he can do it.

Keep it up...can he bring it again out west?

Oh, so you admit that he is better than C. Locke now?

Did you not see him play last year before he got injured? He got 2 semi breakaways using his speed in 1 period alone. He's our quickest forward hands down.

Hoffman can be an excellent top 6 forward.

He is our most underrated prospect.

he is incredibly fast.
and not crazy legs and arms fast.

Controlled stable calm super fast. He glides around faster than most guys skating.
watching him last night i was wondering if he's as quick and fast as Karlsson.

we need what he can bring IMO, same with Dacosta.

I honestly see Hoffy as a consistent 50 point getter in the league 20g, 30a,(given a top 6 role) there is no reason for him to spend any more time in the minors

Our team speed needs to improve. Hoffman is part of that. Conacher is another. We just need some more...

Why not put him on Turris line with MacArthur? Such speed, so skill.

What does everyone think about Hoffman's return? I thought he has played well and will be a great scorer once he gets things going, seems to be at the right spots at the right times, also made a few great defensive plays last night!! I hope they let him continue into the playoffs (if we make it)

He has played well but he has to produce. There are no moral victories for us at this stage. We need points.

Yep. He is still going through the Denis Hamel syndrome.

Agreed, he has to put the puck in the net & start making a habit of it.
