Hodgson's destination next season

So what do you guys think? Will Hodgson end up in:

A) Back to Brampton in the OHL
B) Manitoba in the AHL
C) The big club!

I personally think he'll do very well in training camp and he'll get the 9 game stint with the Canucks at the beginning of the season. However I have a hunch he'll spend most of the season with the Moose. I don't suspect he'll need another year in junior.

He's already shown he can dominate juniors, so the moose would be more appropriate. Where he will play among those his own age and older. And, to have him accustomed with other canuck prospects sounds ideal to me. Comes down to, which coaching staff Gillis believes will be most beneficial for Hodgson. With the hiring off Gagne, would he be working specifically with canuck prospects in Manitoba, or would it be around the board?

If your hunch is correct, then I would prefer he remains with the big club. Leafs demoted Carlo Coliacavo (spl) when he had earned his spot on the team, and end result was injuries...and still hasn't made the jump. Similar story with Luc (rip)

Will he be elgible for the AHL? I believe he's gotta be 20 (dnq) before he can play there. Canucks or bust. If he plays decently well in traning camp, which I see him doing if his hockey IQ is as good as some claim, then he'll stick around for atleast 9 (or is it 10?) games.

He's not 20 for two more years, so no AHL.

OHL

Or

9 Game NHL try-out ---> OHL

OR

NHL

Yeah there's no way he's even allowed to play with the Moose.

That being said, I'd like to see what this kid can do. Give him top 6 minutes in pre-season and if he lights it up, give him his 9 game tryout. If he continues to play well then keep him here. If not, then send him back to dominate Jr's again and captain Team Canada U20 to another world junior gold medal.

Here's to hoping we can poach Corey Perry from the Ducks.

Raymond-Hodgson-Perry would be a sweet line.

Too early to tell. See what he can do with offensive minutes in the pre-season and if he lights it up, give him a 9 game try-out. Of course it also depends on what moves the Canucks make this off-season as well as to whether or not there will be a spot open for him on the team.

I really hope the Canucks give him a long good look at camp. I am sick of them never giving prospects a chane to be like a Stastny, Bergeron, Kopitar or Gagner.

It would be nice to see just one Canucks 1st rounder play the year he was drafted...

Well with the poor crop of centers available, that may just be Gillis' plan. The Canucks would have to acquire a solid winger to compliment that line though, but with Ryan Kesler playing a quasi 2nd/3rd line role, it could work depending on how NHL-ready Hodgson is.

Best case is 9 games (he has earned) and a season in the OHL. There is really no reason to rush him and he admittedly has to improve some areas of his game (skating/strength) before he is NHL ready. If he comes out and grabs a spot and runs with it, rock on, but to expect anything more than a long look at camp is putting too much pressure on the kid.

80 points and 40 goals is very very nice, but it is not exactly out of this world domination, especially when you consider who he played with. He still has a lot to accomplish in the OHL, and if he is one of our top 4 options at C i am not happy about our chances for the cup.

Older Canuck fans will find a certain irony in that statement...

They'll handle him like they have Grabner.

Tryout during training camp. If he doesnt stick, he gets sent to the AHL. If he's not doing well then back to the CHL for another year.

If he plays good in training camp, and the pre-season I say why not have him play on the big club? Its not going to hurt to give him a chance. We really need to add some good players who can score.

That's not how they handled Grabner. It was Training Camp-Juniors-AHL. Which is pretty typical for most draft picks.

Some of you guys have no clue, he can't play in the AHL. Send him to the OHL for at least another year and let him develop.

I agree.. let him star on the WJC squad.. unless of course he is outstanding during training camp.

You need to consider Bramption Battalions play a very defensive system, the last time a player scored 100pts on that team was Wojtek Wolski in his 3rd year of the OHL. Just for comparison sakes, Cody Hodgson has outscored Wolski in the first two seasons of each player.
