I'd take Kovalchuk and his 6.5M cap hit any day of the week over Hodgson who will most likely have a $3m+ cap hit after next season.

Kovalchuk is a superstar with raymond speed. Hodgson is a turtle, a weak one at that.


Kovy had 37 goals at a cap hit of 6.7 mil last season which equals to 5.6 goals per millionCody had 19 goals at a cap hit of 1.6m last season which equals 11.8 goals per million.Who was the better value. Yes Cody is due to get a raise but NJ is stuck with Kovy's insamely long contract for the next 12 years. Will Kovy still be a 6.7m player when he is 40? Personally I think Buffalo is in the better position.

You're comparing Apples and Oranges. Kovalchuk was proven at the time he signed, Cody has one year under his belt and we won't know if he'll ever possess the game changing ability that Kovalchuk possesses. Of course Buffalo is in a better position. Kovy is older and there are expectations set where as Cody has none.

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.

There was a brown/Clifford package that LA bailed on...sigh, how things would have been different

Burke offered schenn and a second I believe and Gillis told him "Toronto did not have the assets they were looking for"

Not sure if Johansen was on the list, CBJ would not have done one for one

I know your joking but I would way rather have Hodgson than Kovalchuk and his insane contract and yes I know Kovy is playing in the Stanley Cup finals now, just like Hodgson did last year.

Dude, if we got Kovy without giving up a Sedin, Kesler, Burrows, Hamhuis, Edler, Bieksa or Luongo I would be very happy.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it
