To Buffalo : Cody Hodgson, Alex Sulzer

To Vancouver: Zack Kassian and Marc-Andre Gragnani

I would like to say i like this trade alot. Kassian is a monster and hasnt been given a fair shake just like Hodgson.

Gillis on Kassian: "What's not to like? He's 6-foot-4, 225 pounds and just turned 21. The only real power forward we have is Booth."

Zack Kassian

Looks like the Canucks are going to rely on their top two lines for scoring. This is potentially a good move for the future but this could cost the Canucks the Stanley Cup this year.

The whole talk of "Hodgson doesn't cut it as a 3rd liner always behind Kes n Hank" is such a sad argument.. I thought Hodgson would be ready by the time the twins leave town to take over the leadership role as captain and be our first line center.. One of the hardest things to come by in this league.

As is Kassian's Canadian power forward grit that is just as hard to come by. But Hank isn't going to be here forever and Kesler is getting no younger

This trade just saddens me because of the way Hodgson has played this season in key situations vs the big teams in the big games like Chicago, Boston and Detroit.. He is a definite playoff guy too (everyone remember his MVP in WJC 16 pts in 6 games)..

Gragnani broke some big records down in the AHL too so he's a good upgrade on Sulzer.

Hoping dearly that Kassian can have that impact player status come Bean town n Lucic this year and years to come .. Remember he is younger than Hodgy n is still a GREAT young 21 year old prospect.

Shocked

This guy was supposed to be our captain in the future

We just lost a huge part of our 2ndary scoring. Kesler's line has been so inconsistent and have the Sedins. What happens when one or both are shut down?

Clearly we were too deep at centre but wow losing Cody is tough.

He will be missed but I wish him well.

Will be interesting to see how Kassian and Gragnani do. Lots of pressure on them to make this trade worth it. Nice to have some size on fwd now.


Wow...

Definitely high-risk, high-reward. Could Kassian and Gragnani be the pieces we need to go all the way?

canucks win this trade now and in the future
canucks can now match their 3rd line against other teams top lines, and in the future kassian could be a huge force

I would have rather traded Schneider to get this missing piece than Hodgson. I'm against the trade now, but Kassian breaking Marchand or Bollands face will change my mind.

MG had to do something, We needed the size and grit up front and with Sedin and Kes their was no room for COHO, Sad to see him go but you have give something good to get something good.

Very shocked but Mike Gillis knows what he's doing.

Anyone know much about Gragnani? Will he be playing over Rome and Alberts?

Might have a little drop off in secondary scoring but we swapped a talent that didn't fit our organisational needs for a talent that DOES fit our organisational needs.

Kind of hoped for an extra draft pick coming our way, seems like an overpayment considering how well Hodgson has been this year.

I love this deal, Cody is going to be great, but Zack Kassian is EXACTLY what we need. I LOVE THIS Move

Gragani is a great bonus too - He was Coached by AV in juniors. another French guy! Has good potential





Favourite player: Todd Bertuzzi



I want a Kassian Jersey!




21 Years old, TONS OF POTENTIAL.

HUGE Coho fan, all the best in Buffalo with Hoffa and Sulzer(Team Germany united!!)

Gragnani is a really good power-play asset played in the world championships for Canada last year. Point per game d-man in the Playoffs, will do well paired with Rome/Ballard.

Zack Kassian is a Gem, this guy has a mean streak and he will go straight to the net, AV won't have to ask twice.

I liked Hodgson a lot, but am also a big fan of Kassian, the kid is going to develop into a solid power forward, and he can fight.

Gragnani aint so bad either. Good deal for the Canucks, we have our new Bertuzzi!
