As the title says


With all due respect - your post is very typical of "arm-chair" canucks fans - who always think in the past. Every year we see the same old "bring Naslund back, bring Bure back, bring Slo-Mo (Morrison) back.............." and on & on it goes. Thankfully, MG arrived on the scene and "turf's" freeloaders and parasites after giving them fair chance. That is the way you "BUILD" a team. Fact of the matter is that Hedge-Hog was high mtce and MG and AV got tired of tucking him in to bed each night after 3 long years of spoonfeeding him.
Although Kassian still has to prove himself - at least he hasn't been a drag on the team like Hedge-Hog.

I was not thrilled with the trade. Not in terms of the deal itself, but more of the timing. I thought the Canucks could get a lot more for Hodgson in the offseason, but it wasn't my call to make. Maybe Gillis just couldn't handle the situation anymore.

It's like the Ballard trade. I was ok with trading Bernier and Grabner, but losing the 1st rounder was a bit much, and I would have preferred and younger D-man in exchange. But I also know why Gillis did it. Hamhuis wasn't a lock to be signed so he needed to make sure his bases was covered.

Not much point in griping about it, what's done is done. I can't go back to the 80's and tell the GM not to trade Cam Neely, and use the 1st round pick to draft Joe Sakic either.

I agree OP but he clearly wanted out, so we had no choice. You just can't predict injuries, all you can do is add depth just in case. Hopefully we will end up saying "thank god for Kassian now that (insert Booth or another winger here) is injured".

Stamkos or Malkin would have looked better.

It's true, no doubt, and MG shouldn't be let off the hook for it. Hopefully someone can fill the void. It sucks Kassian will be forever tied to Cody, he can be a very good player, but the trade already cost us. Win the cup this year and nobody will care, it will heal everything.

Yes, Cody Hodgson could have played 2C if he were here. Unfortunately he's less defensibly responsible than either Ebbett or Shroeder (who I expect will be back up soon) and I don't know that it would be possible to shelter him enough to give him the ozone minutes he would need to be really successful.

Perhaps you should go to the Sabres site, this is the Canucks board.

Maybe that says something more about you than it does about people like the OP.

"I think this thread is stupid." = no warning
""I think this person is stupid." = warning

But I agree, this thread is stupid.

Who can blame CoHo for not wanting to be here..If you see no room for advancement as well as a lack of encouragement from coaching/management I would be out..
So if anybody in this form worked there butt off at a job, and wanted to advance but they would rather have someone who is injured work and does the job half ass...its a bit of a slap in the face. Bad coaching if you ask me.. Look at RG3 in the playoffs...your up 14pts and you still play someone who is 60%?? when there is someone who could play a supplemental role?? Shake your head people!!

If anything, Kesler could have played on the third with reduced minutes so the healing process can be excellerated.

Its not a matter of what if...its a what was..its a fact that we had a great piece who was doing well.

Complaining about the Hodgson trade? Never heard that before...


I agree. I thought I was in a time warp. As we see more and and more of Kassian, I like this trade better and better. Kassian is a year younger than Hodgson and a year of development makes a big difference at this age. To me, Kassian's trajectory looks at least as good as Hodgson's. Guys who are big, physical players AND who have a high offensive skill level AND who play responsible defence are gold and there are not many of them. Kassian looks like he will be one of them.

And Hodgson is too much a prima donna. Kassian just puts his head down (figuratively, not literally) and plays hard without whining about where he plays, how much he plays, etc.

I like this trade, even if it means a month or so with a back-up (Ebbett) in the 2C slot in place of Kesler.
