      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Trade] Cody Hodgson to Buffalo

Recommended Posts

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...

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.
