Hodgson's trade value is very low right now with him having a broken hand, he will be out a while. Probably not a good idea to deal him unless you get a solid offer that makes sense. I wouldn't write Hodgson off as a band-aid boy just quite yet. He has a tremendous work ethic and commitment to fitness. Injuries are going to happen, its hockey.
Michalek on the other hand, coming off a career year goals wise and even though he only missed 5 games last season, it was concussion related, so thats even greater cause for concern really. Shop him around for sure, let us know who you might be able to get. Give us some names.
Stamkos was asked today in Tampa how he can top last season:
"Well, get into the playoffs. That's the big key and that's our goal here."
