Michael Gillis is anti-youth. He doesn't like talent. He likes Volpatti. You know, guys without much talent.

Grabner had shown flashes of brilliance before the dreaded trade to Florida. Look at the skills he has now. That one timer against the Laffs tonight was terrific.

Hodgson is flourishing. He is a valuable right handed shot. His blast against Thomas in the Bruins game was Yzerman-esque. And he was dealt for Zack Kassian. Kassian is not in the same league as Hodgson, unfortunately.

The next talent that they have is Schroeder. He will probably be packaged with Luongo down to Florida.

Fire Michael Gillis.

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

You are beyond stupid.
Kassian > Hodgson, do you know what this team needs?
A big right wing who can create space and stick up for the Twins, Hodgson won't to that.
Character was also a big problem, Kassian is a easy to like guy that will go the extra mile for the team, Eager?

Grabner was garbage here, lazy, not producing. Hell, he was put on waivers by Florida, and he had one good season so don't say he's good.

Honestly Grabner is pretty much Raymond 2.0 and this is coming from a guy who almost cried when we traded him. We got Kassian for Hodgson and we still have Schroeder lol so I don't know what you're getting at.

He's anti youth but he traded hodgson for a younger player? I don't get it.

Maybe one day Kassian will score half of his goals with his bum like Hodgson does, he can only dream.


Edit: Just watched the highlights of the Buffalo/Carolina game and man, Hodgson's giveaways or blown coverages led to like 2 goals and another chance or two. He's good on the power play but I'm much happier with Kass and his play of late.

Someone hasn't seen the last 2 games.

Grabner Had no place on this team. He wasn't beating out Sammuelsson or Raymond for a top 6 spot, both had come off career years and he wasn't going to land on the 3rd line as we were making an effort to get grittier there with Malhotra and later Torres coming on board, so we would have just waived him and lost him to NYI for nothing, atleast this way we used him and delt from and area of strength to address an area of weakness and a huge need.

Hodgson DIDN'T WANT TO BE HERE. It is really that simple, this kid would not have been traded otherwise, MG praised him non-stop throughout his rehab back to strength and in 10-11 when everyone got down on him MG stood by him, it doesn't change that quickly if there isn't issues. Which there was so we moved him for a young player who is a year behind and it already playing just aswell as him, and that young player also addresses a major organizational need.

Schroeder isn't going anywhere as far as I am concerned, this guy can play on the 3rd line if needed and he is loaded with Character and isn't coming in with the sense of entitlement Cody seemed to have as JS has worked hard and proved the haters wrong his entire career.

Way to make a pointless thread without considering circumstances.

Kassian fills the void ever since the departure of Bertuzzi and that was a long time ago. You need to give to get. I like this trade.

However, I've never liked the Grabner and 1st trade.

No offense, but I honestly think you're one of the bigger idiots on this board.

I think the op has a point, that's that youth is not given the chance that it should on this team. You can't chop it up to we are too good a team, you can't stay a good team unless you play your young players (Detroit).

Right, because I automatically hate every ex Canuck.
He wasn't great in his own end, he even admitted he was lazy here.
I liked him, but this wasn't a great fit for him.

They should trade Luongo, Kassian and Raymond for Justin Schultz.
Then make him our 7th dman and tell him to get bent, just to spite him.
Then trade Kesler for Hodgson (cause Kesler's useless anyways)
Then fire AV
Then fire MG
Then trade the Canucks to Memphis in return for the Grizzlies back.
Then fire the Aquilini's.

i wouldn't say Kass>Hodgson right now.. at least not yet.. he might in the future but not at the moment. Hodgson is at least for the moment proving he can score and produce on a consistent basis. Kassian probably brings more to the table in terms of size and toughness, but whether he can be consistent remains to be seen. He's playing great right now though so hope he keeps it up.

CDC trashing all the ex canucks? what's new? when they are here they are praised off the roof when playing well.. the moment they hit a slump or gets traded they are a worthless sack of sh!t that isn't good enough. Well at least even blindfolded they are still better than us on cdc.

The OP's post obviously wasn't well thought out, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little leery as well. Gillis has so far traded away the Canucks' first round pick in 2006 (Grabner), 2007 (White, but who the frick cares?) and in 2008 (Hodgson). He got Kassian for Hodgson so he's getting value back, but I would like to finally see a bit more patience with the Canucks' home grown youth. Trading Grabner, especially, was a huge mistake.

Shroeder?

He played in the third game od the season and AV played him in the third and even gave him a shift in OT.

Grabner had one good season. Production dropped huge last year. +13 to -18.

Kassian > Hodgson


NEXT!
