If every Canuck played like Higgins did on the first shift of the hockey game, the Canucks would never lose. I am very happy Gillis found a way to re-sign him - and at a very reasonable price...
That was a stunning fight by Ballard - sure Pavelski is not a fighter, but I haven't seen a lopsided Canuck win like that since Volpatti/Richardson... and before that Rypien/Prust, I think.
Hodgson is becoming the player we all probably hoped for after 2008/09 season and WJC - smart and creative with the puck, hardworking, and defensively responsible.
Ha - I thought Kesler would pass to Higgins for sure on the play that led to his goal, just to prove to AV that he was a playmaker...!

In 48 games this season, Hodgson has 13 goals, 16 assists and 29 points, which extrapolates to 22 goals, 27 assists and 49 points over an 82 game season which is excellent output for a third line player.
In Henrik's rookie season, he had 9 goals, 20 assists and 29 points in 82 games. Kesler had 10 goals, 13 assists and 23 points over 82 games in his rookie season.
It's also worth noting that in their respective rookie seasons Henrik was -2 and Kesler was +1. Hodgson is +7 right now.
The bottom line is that Silent G is putting together a very nice rookie season. In fact, he is having a much more productive first year than Kesler or Henrik did. If he keeps it up, he will have a 20 goal rookie season which would blow by anybody's expectations for this player coming into the year. Henrik has only scored 20 or more goals twice, and Kesler didn't score 20 goals until his third season in the NHL.
