You say we need to be patient. I say as fans we've all been patient enough. If this guy isn't going to help us win a cup NEXT YEAR, then we shouldn't have traded for him. The core of our teams window is closing as we speak.

THIS ^^^^^^^

Im curious to see what Hodgson will sign for. If he goes the route of demanding some ridiculous contract I will be even more thrilled he was traded.

Let me guess, you were one of the same "experts" calling Hodgson a bust only a season ago.

People who don't understand how development of young players works should really just keep quiet. You just make yourself sound dumb.

21 years old is very young to be making an impact in the NHL. People already forget how Cody was a deer lost in the headlights last season, and then this season he was in the calder race. Kassian needs the same amount of time Cody got. This will be the biggest sumer of his career, and he knows it.

Can not wait for the next couple of seasons so people can finally stop using these excuses.

you're probably one of those people that would have traded Kesler early in his career

Yeah, real mature.

Bring up the best player in hockey as your counter-point.

It's called an exception, not a counter-point.

The reason I don't buy this argument is that Dale Weise adjusted fairly quickly to our system and was able to be a staple on the 4th line for most of the season.

As a 4th line player it's not Weise's job to score goals but he was able to contribute offensively from time to time with very limited ice time and when he wasn't chipping in offensively he was a strong physical presence. Kassian however, was like a fish out of water. His hits were minimal, he had trouble keeping up with the other players on the ice, and didn't look like he knew where he should be at any given time while on the ice.

Weise age 23
Kassian age 21

Pro Games Played:
Weise: 78 nhl + 194 ahl
Kassian: 44 nhl + 0 ahl

NHL Points:
Weise:4g 4a 8pts
Kassian: 4g 6a 10pts

With the Canucks:
Weise 68gp 4g 4a 8pts
Kassian 17gp 1g 2a 3pts

You're comparing Kassian to a guy that's 2 1/2 years older who has played 272 pro games. That would be games against men. While prior to this season Kassian had only played junior against boys. Kassian played exactly 1/4 of the games in Vancouver that Weise did. Prorating his numbers to Weise's puts Kassian at 4g 8a 12pts in 68 games. So Kassian was actually more productive per game played here while having considerably less pro experience. Where does that leave your comparison?
