The trade makes sense and will benefit both teams and Hodgson and Kassian. Hodgson was never going to grow here behind Kes and Hank as our top 2 centers and Cody is definately a number 1 or 2 center for sure. Now Hodgson will be just that and we get a big, youing physical guy plays like Lucic just like we all wanted.

And got a d-man out of it. Not bad unless Kassian just does not play to his potential.

Still can't believe it, why'd it have to be Hodgson.


Because Raymond and a 2nd weren't going to get this done.

MIKEY! You frackin betrayed my trust bud. You better have something up your sleeve.

My thoughts:

-Canucks get slower
-Canucks get worse defensively
-Canucks get worse offensively
-Canucks Get A HECK OF A LOT STUPIDER

Am I being negative?

Sedin - Sedin - Kassian

That's what I hope for.

I don't think anybody expected this, it's a huge stab to the heart of Canuck nation.. but our Cup chances have improved greatly and Gillis did a good job addressing what we needed. Pretty sure Raymond is more shocked than any of us that he is still a Canuck, and CoHo isn't

a very very sad day. Hodgson sounded heart broken on the interview with tsn. Also kind of iffy on the return. We also lose our 2nd pp unit with this trade.

Alright. This is a franchise changer for the Canucks. It really is.

There is too much to say about this at the moment. Gotta let it all come together.

I just hope Kassian is ready. If he doesnt make an instant impact, somebody is going to get completely destroyed by the fans and media of this hockey club.

Mike Gillis, I hope you know what you are doing.

A good hockey trade.

Listen, I am a HUGE Hodgson fanboy. But the truth is: he isn't ready to be a shutdown center, esp. if Kesler is hurt. He's gonna be great, especially offensively, but the Canucks are wanting to win the cup now or ASAP. Kassian is everything the Canucks were missing and the energy in Vancouver is going to rub off on him in the BIGGEST way, for real.

MAG is +10, which is okay for a offensive defenseman on a horrible team where everybody is having poor seasons. He's played with Lapierre and AV for the Rocket with success. He's also played with Kassian (obviously) & Mancari. Past connections are important as GMMG as proven.

As for the TSN boneheads who are saying Kassian is an answer ONLY to Boston.. what a joke. Every team (yes, including Detroit) who has won the cup has had big, gritty winger(s). Kassian is a winger, primarily a RWer, but he can play the left-side too, because when he isn't scoring he's wearing down the opposition like no other. Kassian is 230 pounds. He has great mobility, a nice wrist shot, as he said himself 'likes to make plays' and he can take a hit as well as he can give one. It's gonna be awesome watching him forechecking for Kesler if that's the route AV decides to go.

Bruce Arthur is a total tool. Kassian is useless against Detroit?? How so? They have tons of grit in Franzen, Bertuzzi, Holmstrom and others in the top-9.

I'm real sad to see Cody go and IMO Buffalo will be the bigger winner in the long-run, but Kassian fills a need for the Canucks and you gotta give to get (not every GM is Scott Howson..).

Canucks were missing a power forward. We already have a scoring threat in Schroeder, and can expect to get another one in the Schnieder trade (should that happen soon).

Very worried about our 2nd unit PP if the Sedins get shut down. Who will be playmaker on 2nd unit now? Booth,Higgins, Burrows? None are near the playmakers Cody is. Bad,bad move in my opinion.

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

How does this help us win now? Kassian isn't even holding down a regular NHL job. Cody gave us three scoring lines (*edit: and was previously mentioned by another poster, a second power play unit). I am in disbelief.

We won't know who won this trade for a few years.

We got two young players for the price of one. If Kassian becomes that power forward we need...awesome. If Gragnani becomes a solid part of our D core...sweet candy.

If Hodgson becomes one of the best players in the NHL, like I believe he will...it's really going to hurt...forever.

Hopefully Kassian and Gragnani make me forget how sick this trade makes me feel right now.

I really enjoyed watching Coho play man. Grrrr...Go new guys!

Absolutely TERRIBLE trade. I don't care how you slice it this will bite us in the ass. This makes us significantly worse THIS year and probably in the future. Our 2nd PP unit is going to suck now, we no longer have 3 scoring lines and we lost a 50 point 20 goal getter. 4th on our team in goals, how are we going to replace that? Hodgson should have only been traded for a Bogosian type player. THATS IT. I feel like throwing up

I'm torn here.

In one hand, Gillis has made excellent decisions since he got here.

On the other hand, Hodgson was seriously skilled and was proving it on the best team in the NHL.

This is the type of deal that the fan base doesn't give you a lot of leeway on, it better work like a charm or there's gonna be more civil unrest.

Puke.

Time to change all thoughts about MG; should be fired!

Guys like Hodgson should net Selanne > see Iginla for Niewendyk.

Kassian has spent half his year in the AHL, has not even cracked the lineup full time & we've sent Bitz to the minors to create room for him.

Heave

Puke!

:sick:

Its gunna be a long night, dont even care about the hangover :sadno:

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.

You gotta give some to get. Hodgson awsome guy and deserves top center minutes and will benefit in Buffalo. We got the type of player we wanted and a player that fill a hole in our line up.

I've always liked Zack Kassian. Really happy to see the guy in the system. Hodgson going the other way sucks, though I trust that Lapierre, Malhotra, and Pahlsson know what they're doing.

Booth can play center, too, right? Very off chance he'll play 3rd line center, I guess.

Kassian is exactly the type of player we need, but he isn't even an NHL regular right now. That's what I don't get.

I don't think this trade makes us better right now.

Don't see how this is going to help us now.

Kassian will not be an impact player on this team this year. He's only played a handful of games for Buffalo and has spent most of the season in the AHL.

So disappointed to see Hodgson go. At least there he will get the opportunity to flourish. And let's face it, he was never going to be out Kes or Hank for the 1 or 2 center positions. So he was basicially at a dead end here in vancouver. No room to grow. And he wasn't going to get more icetime from AV while playing behind Kes and Hank. There just wasn't that much to go around.

Good luck in Buffalo Coho. You will be missed.
