No draft pick is a sure thing.

I have been wrong in the past but not on this particular issue.

Any lawyer who does litigation learns that you are not always right. I have won cases that I thought I had little chance of success and other cases have been lost where that seemed highly unlikely. It is just rolling the dice.

Also I have lost cases where the decision has been overturned on appeal so I was ultimately right.

You also have appeal cases where the court splits with dissent so...

Basically in any litigation one lawyer ends up being "right".

Thanks for not making a relevant point and just trying to crowbar in Hodgson trolling.

It's almost like following the usual procedure for a player coming off an injury is a wise thing to do.

Notice how Vigneault only said 'Good'... and not 'Great' or 'Fantastic' or 'Super Duper' to describe Hodgson?

I smell a rift.

He was just commenting on the Porsche Cody drove to practice in while wearing his Armani suit and his Gucci sun glasses...

...wait isn't Cody still the prima donna who spits on other prospects?

Cody Hodgson survived "battle" drills and look so good, Alex Burrows thinks prospect could join main Canuck team by end of the week.

The rift has gotten so huge, it's even dividing the locker room. Quick, everybody copy and paste Wetcoaster's posts to the main forums and spam!

This just in... Alex Burrows has been charged for attempted assault for going after Cody Hodgson with a hockey in the locker room Tonya Harding style while screaming "I came up from ze ECHL, no kid is stealing my spot. Lets see how good that back really is."

Damn, it'd be sweet if he could be an impact player on that second line right off the bat.

Settle your tea kettle.

I'm just hoping he can get into a couple pre-season games first.

That said it's pretty worrying when a young player has back issues like this. Obviously they aren't comparable players but the Oil have had similar problems with JF Jacques. He'd be a great fit for the fourth line as a fast big body that can hit, but he can never seem to get his back fixed. Hopefully Hodgson has cleared the danger though. I think he'll be a special player to watch.

I was at camp today. Went over to the other sheet of ice to watch Hodgson.

They did a two on one drill where one forward and one defenceman start in the corner battling for the puck - Cody had no problem in the corners taking contact. His speed looked fine, shot was great, hands looked great. Hard to tell from watching a few drills with the 'C' group, but back injury or not, he was much better than anyone else out there. My prediction- he gets in a few preseason games and makes a run for a roster spot.

"Abraham Lincoln really went through a lot to get where he was," said Hodgson, speaking publicly for the first time since his arrival in the city last week. "He suffered a lot of setbacks and was shot down a lot - maybe that's the wrong word - but he really went through a lot before he went on to do some amazing things."
Woah!
