This is a thread about Kassian being benched. (Along with Gragnani). So Hodgson is naturally part of the conversation of this thread. I don't think this topic will be over this playoffs, nor should it.

It was a stupid, knee-jerk, pre-mature move on Gillis's part, probably with a lot of pressure from AV. (Basically AV telling Gillis he doesn't care how much better Hodgson is playing...he's not going to play him in the playoffs so he'd better get something for him NOW)

Laughable to think that Hodgson would buckle in the playoffs. He's only given 100% every game this year, a difference maker in wins against San Jose, Chicago, and Boston and in past pressure situations like the World Juniors, stepped up when it counted. Our 4th leading scorer who made our third line dangerous. A big loss and its inconceivable that he wouldn't have made a difference in at least one of the first 3 games.

hodgson was good at playing against 3rd and 4th liners. would he up changed the outcome? i doubt it. can't say he wouldnt of been better than the rest of the team though. everyone played quite poorly.

What the hell was AV thinking?

After the team gets its first victory (Game 4) and then after puts Weise in for Kassian.

Not a good way to build chemistry when your continuously juggling the lines.

It's time for a change.

Hodgson shines on the PP and his play-making ability which we were lacking this series.

Kassian kinda did nothing in game 4....

I actually noticed Weise out there and not for anything negative. Whenever I saw Kassian during this series his feet were not moving.

Weise is solid out there. You know what you're going to get. I don't see him as a liability, almost ever. It would be nice if he had more offensive punch, but whatever. As long as he's solid defensively and can lay the body effectively and consistent for his ice time, I'll take it.

I don't think Kassian was supposed to be able to replace Hodgson right away. It's fine if he doesn't end up playing every playoff game.


this is what frustrates me the most. Why on earth is MG trading a proven productive young player for an unproven player who MIGHT develop in the future? It's not like Hodgeson is old or anything.
