    Should be a good one. I would temper expectations as he's still getting his legs back. He recently suffered a bad orbital bone break that required him to be out for over 6 weeks in which he couldn't raise his blood pressure past a certain point (essentially he couldn't maintain high workouts). The kid has talent, but he'll skate on our 4th line. As long as he doesn't make glaring errors defensively, I think we should consider that a successful debut given the circumstances.

    He'll be wearing the full face cage too. Probably won't play more than 9-10mins but I think this might be more to see if Hodgson is defensively up to the task of playing on the 4th line. Not really expecting much to be honest but it will be fun nonetheless.

    :rolleyes:

    He's a bluechip prospect making his NHL debut, don't act like it's nothing. Hope he does well, I still don't see how he could possibly be "overrated" after 2 injury plagued seasons. This guy can be a special player.

    I bet this thread gets closed!

    Im happy for the kid.

    At least the Canucks 4th line has some pretty good players.

    Hope he gets 2nd unit PP time too.

    Dear Canuck and Cody Hodgson fans,

    Know that there is going to be a lot of smack talked in this thread....the best way to get away from it is to ignore it.....ms. fox has already proved my point.

    Just ignore.....please!

    Good luck to Hodgson, i hope he is able to shut some naysayers up. Of course, he is going to be a bit slow out there, and if he struggles i am sure there will be people jumping on him for ridiculous reasons.

    interested to see how he looks.
     
  12. First thing to come to my mind.

    About time.


    My feeling is he won't ever achieve anything. 40-45pts player at best. Of course I can be wrong, I just don't feel it.

    I watched Manitoba last week on NHL network. I wanted to see both Hodgson and Schroeder. I thought they were OK but, I wasn't wowed.

    Really? He's just a kid whose going to be playing in his first NHL game tomorrow after some very tough two years. No reason to be a jerk about it.

    I'm a bit concerned about his mobility right now, considering his lack of playing time lately. Odd time for the Canucks to give him a look.

    if he doesn't score a goal, he's a bust.

    Both hadn't played in ages after injuries. Probably not the best game to judge them on.

    CHL Player of the Year, First Round Pick, WJC Scoring Leader......when a player like that has his first regular season NHL game, it is a big deal and congrats for him. For the sake of HFB, I hope he doesn't get on a role, plays 10 games and gets six or seven points as that would entirely ruin all of the negative predictions this poor kid has had on here for two years. Can't have that now.

    Haha, pretty much.

    Anyone expecting some kind of godly show from Hodgson tomorrow will be sorely disappointed.

    Well, he will stand out with the full face cage.
     
  24. playing on the 3rd line?
     
  25. 4th line C-ing but AV line juggles all the time so he isn't fixated anywhere
