This is my post-game post on PuckBuddys called The Kassian-Cody Conundrum.

It's about whether the trade of Cody Hodgson for Zack Kassian and two other players was a good one. After last night's squeaker win, Kassian is now DA MAN! But for how long?

Good read. I think a lot of people really overlook the types of games Kassian and Hodgson play. Kassian is a bruiser, that is capable of decimating someone, and sniping geno's when he needs to. Cody is more of a finesse sort of player, and definitely plays the opposite end of the spectrum from Zack. I have always liked Zack and I am loving his start to the year. Expect more out of him playing with the Sedins.

Sorry GayCanuck, usually I really enjoy some of the material you post on your blog, but I feel like this topic has been beat to death. It was solidly written don't get me wrong, but since the trade deadline, all anybody talks about is the goaltender or Kassian vs. Hodgson. It's just... I don't know, stale I guess.

Ask yourself, which player would likely play better against a team like the 2012 Kings or 2011 Bruins in the playoffs - where the refs let alot more things go....

I'm not cool with all the hate for Hodgson. We needed a power forward, Buffalo needed a center. Everyone's a winner! And we're supporting our expansion bros in their battle against Toronto and Boston. Hodgson is doing the Canucks' work out east, he's already beaten the Leafs once this season. The supposed bitterness between him and the management/coaching is just a cover story. We sent him over there to mess with our enemies, he's in deep cover. Don't worry about it.

Star Wars analogy: when we traded Hodgson I was all like, "you were supposed to be the chosen one!" but then he became the villain instead. Well, we know how that ends, right? Hodgson is gonna throw Jeremy Jacobs down an elevator shaft at the Garden.

Cody who?

Snake Doctor, on 23 May 2014 - 10:41 AM, said:snapback.png

Miller is not on our list. It's Lack as our #1. There is no reason we would have traded both Schnieder and Luongo if we never intended to give Lack the #1 starting job.  Furthermore, the salary and term Miller is looking for is not in our favor.

Good read, though I hate to be the grammar police:

As Kassian’s star began to rise last night with the first goal, and then the winning shutout goal, the cocky chorus of “Cody who?” and “Where are all those Cody lovers now?” grew even louder in the Twitterverse.


Might want to change it to "shootout" :)

Loathed the Anakin character in the prequel films (and I don't mean because "he was the bad guy" but rather because he was badly written/sucked; as well, the actors playing him were awful).

Yes, I know the topic of Hodgson/Kassian has been bludgeoned to death. I just wish all these other bloggers and reporters would stop talking about one of my favorite topics. I just really liked Cody with the Canucks, and that's why I've written two posts about him, but they were a year apart at least. I promise to only write 6 more posts about it this season. Thanks for reading!

Only six?! Don't deprive yourself! Set a your goal at 8 and slowly ween yourself off of Cody Hodgson. You don't want your body to go into shock :o

Lets face it, Kassian will be the best power forward in the league this year. All that time in the AHL paid off huge and you can tell.

Yep, they are both definitely opposite sides of the spectrum in style of play. I thought Cody would be a better match for Sedins because of his finesse, but, after the Duncan Keith incident last year, Sedins also need someone who can beat the crap out of anyone who tries that crap again, and Cody was not that type of player. Neither is Booth, actually. If Kassian can play with finesse and also intimidate other players, then Gillis will look like a genius. But it is only 3 games, a lot could happen between now and the Playoffs.

Totally different players. Good luck to Cody.

The Canucks have needed a player like Kassian since Bertuzzi more than they needed a player like Hodgson.

They will retire it while he is actually wearing it, and he will have to change numbers in between periods so he doesnt piss himself off.
