"I remember a situation in New Jersey about two months into the season I was at rock bottom and thinking 'I need to get out of here, I want a different start in a new organization.' But Lou Lamoriello [Devils GM] and I talked and he expressed faith in me, and a few months later I was the MVP of the playoffs. A fresh start in another city wasn't what I needed at all. I needed to make some adjustments in my attitude and look at the team around me differently. "Vancouver is one of the best organizations in the game; why would you want to go to another team? You have to look at your surroundings in the right way and I think Cody's definitely doing that."

That from Claude Lemieux, Cody Hodgson's personal "coach". Edit: I posted this because: 1. The kid has now worked with Gary Roberts and Lemieux. 2. Lemieux, despite all his dirtiness, is a proven winner. I like the concept of him working with Hodgson. 3. Is Gallagher hinting at further rift between the Canucks and Hodgson? I mean, Tony wouldn't do that would he?? You can read rift in the article, but don't forget that Lemieux was asked a certain question by Tony G and responded. 4. @#%ing media. Etc. Hope Hodgson kicks ass at camp. Glad he feels 100%.
