[Trade] Cody Hodgson to Buffalo

742 posts in this topic

Looking forward to see Hodgson light up the East!

I'll always be a fan of his, he showed tremendous maturity and patience, even after being mistreated by AV when he had his back injury. He's gonna be a great player & probably a future captain for the Sabres.

So heartbroken, CoHo looked rattled while being interviewed, sigh, clutch goals in big games:( ...on the bright side, this Kassian guy seems to be 'underrated' by most Vancouver fans, let's see what he brings besides obvious size.

So sad though:(

you trade hodgson you bring us a cup :(

Not happening as far as I can see it. :(

Wanting a little more toughness? Why not tweak the 3rd and 4th lines instead of giving up on a potential 80 point centre?

We just went from a position of strength down the middle to one Sedin/Kesler injury from flaming out in the 1st round... :picard:

why raymond is still on this team is beyond belief. I would've traded him for ANYTHING....this trade is sooo shocking. I hope Kassian is what we need, but i'm not sure if he's ready to contribute regularly at the NHL level...but this lineup, when healthy, i guess would be ok..

Sedins - Burrows

Booth - Kesler - Higgins

Raymond - Pahlsson - Hansen

Kassian - Manny - Lapierre

Hammer - Juice

Edler - Salo

Ballard - Gragnani

Lu

Schneider

Sorry, but that pair will kill us in the playoffs.

I love the idea of having a true power forward but Kassian was not ready to play in Buffalo full time yet and the chances of him being ready to play here this year and in the playoffs are not good so tell me we how got better for a playoff run after that deal , This trade should have been made in the off season , This is a big deal that is going to play out in the next few years and will be one that will be a big part of MG legacy and if it does not work out really well for us it could turn out to be his downfall. I would have done this deal For Jordin Shroeder cause there at about the same level of development and both are young promising prospects that are far from sure things unlike Hodgson who was starting to show he was the real deal

Will miss Hodgson. Kind of know something might happen to him with Pahlsson trade.

Hopefully Kassian is the next Cam Neely. Checked the web and he had previous suspensions and personal issues. Hopefully that will not affect the dressing room chemistry.

When I saw Hodgson going to Buffalo, I was hoping Canucks will get Tyler Myers.

Anyhow would like to have Brayden McNabb instead of Gragnani. Noticed Gragnani from boards that he is a defensive liability. Maybe AV can fix him up.

wow..Hodgson for a minor leaguer. wow....

If we want to get bigger, why don't we get Parros? I am sure Parros will not cost us Hodgson!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL wow comparing Kassian to Parros. You need to watch more hockey outside Vancouver

My heart dropped when this was announced

Sounds like it'll be awhile before we know whether or not it was the right move

Some analysts are saying it puts up closer to winning a Cup and other say the opposite

Clearly it's a wait and see kind of deal

Canuck's already had a garage full of Ferrari's, They needed a Buick.

Besides Booth (Who isn't the prototypical Power Forward) the Canucks really don't have a player of Kassian's type in the system. A little shocked but I am excited to have Kassian as a Canuck.

A bit on the bright side, atleast Hodgson will be lighting up the East on a team the Canucks play, what...Once a year? Will still follow his career, hope he does well.

I wonder how shocked the people were who were so sure Cody wasn't going to get dealt...

Is Gragnani an NHL calibre D man or is he expected to play for the Wolves?

looks like gillis was in the market for perry/ryan and when the ducks started to win games they got pulled off the table and kassian was the alternative

Zack Kassian 21 years old

26 points in 30 games in the AHL

Cody Hodgson 21 years old

30 points in 52 games in the AHL.

Are we quoting AHL numbers now? Want me to show you players with AHL numbers that don't ever pan out...? :picard:

Are people missing here that we got a guy that's a huge upgrade on Rome and Alberts that can slot in the #5 spot with a solid defensive guy like Tanev and add some puck moving ability on the back end? Kassian and Hodgson weren't the only players involved here people.

Gragnani had 7 points in 7 playoff games last year. I believe he's +12 on a mediocre at best Buffalo team. He can play.

People are also failing to realize that Kassian is a highly thought of kid that adds something we didn't have in the system; a true power forward. I was becoming a huge Hodgson fan and was about to buy a jersey but this trade adds something we didnt have while subtracting a piece that was fairly repetitive.

My 2 cents.

Where's Miller?!?!? I need his thoughts.

Terrible trade. This has AV written all over it because he has never liked coho and he's succeeded inspite of AV. Can't wait to see coho light it up in buffalo now. We just traded away our future captain. We better win the cup this year or AV should be given the boot!
