Certainly not always true. A kid in a room full of veterans doesn't become a distraction. Maybe if it was Kesler who was asking for a trade it could be. There was no indication at all from Hodgson's play on the ice or demeanour off of it that the way he was treated was going to affect his attitude. Even after he was traded, and Gillis took a few potshots at him, he still refused to badmouth the team, I believe his line was "I'd rather just take the high road" when given the chance to fire back.

Trade value doesn't matter when you don't intend to trade someone. Cody should've been a franchise type of player, he certainly has the talent. You don't trade away guys like that. You just watch, Buffalo won't be as stupid. Personally I fail to understand why Zack Stojanov gets so much more icetime than Cody ever got in Vancouver, despite the fact that Fatassian clearly sucks and provides little that Volpatti and now Sestito couldn't.


Why would you want a player that doesn't wanna be here?

It went way beyond just getting ice time. The relationship between management and coaching was severed a long time before that. People in the media predicted that he wouldn't re-sign here long before that happened.

It becomes a distraction to the coaches and GM when the player is constantly getting his agent/dad to question managements decision.

There's an unwritten rule in hockey, that when a player requests a trade, you respect that wish. You never see someone forced to stay with a team after they've requested a trade.

People still crying in here eh? "Fatassian" huh? stay classy vancouverites. Why not just go buy your Buffalo jerseys so you can stop crying about it all. Bet you all loved Kassian when he was nearly scoring a goal a game to start the season, bunch of fair weather fans.

Don't even bother trying to reason with them in here DeNiro it's a waste of time. They're all obviously smarter then Gillis, AV and the rest of the Canucks organization. You'd be more successful trying to argue with a 5 year old.

Yea, because a 21 year old playing his first full season with a 4th line center and a useless winger sucks...

Give your head a shake.

You're probably part of the same group that called Hodgson a bust when he failed to make the team as a 19 year old.

This makes Gillis look even more like an idiot.. just a crappy trade overall.

Hodgson is the real deal folks.

Cody needed more ice time. He had to be traded at some point. However, it would have been better, if Gillis received more in return for him.

I love it.
There's nothing more entertaining on CDC than listening to people whine about the Hodgson trade.
That alone was worth it.
The fact it also landed a rare gem like Kassian is just cream.

Cody has started turning his +/- around, I think I remember him being -11 not long ago, now is -1, we'll see if this contiunues. It's an important stat for him.

Did you expect anything different? Any positive news about Cody Hodgson will always turn into "Why did Gillis trade him?"I'm never one to get my panties in a twist, but this trade is starting to look real bad, in hindsight of course.

Absolutely untrue, couldn't be farther from the truth. I never once badmouthed Hodgson, ever. I was ecstatic when we drafted him and followed his junior career and AHL career closely. I never called the Sedins busts either. There's one type of player that I always have extra patience for, and it's the guys with the hockey IQ. The Crosbys and Gretzkys of the world are the top of that heap, but it's also the thing that makes Cody and the Sedin twins stand out for me. It's the intangible thing. Cody has the intangibles. I wanted Cody to be untouchable in trade, as I've always thought he was a gem. Speed and size and all of that are important, but the truly great players have something extra that you can't teach or grow into or train for. Maybe if they decided to treat him with a little respect his attitude would change a little bit.

OMG we should have Hodgson and Grabner.

We'd score so many goals, and we'd be the toughest team in the league.

Lol @ the Hodgson fanboys.

We'd be better than we are now

I didnt know that. That is interesting. Means Cody is getting them at even strength and shorties.

I think the problem is, if we were moving Cody anyways, why not have put together a package that GMs would drool over (ie. Hodgson+Schneider+1st+?) to land a true game breaker? A Kovalchuk or Nash would be REALLY helpful right now lol

So much for his skating is going to prevent him from becoming a star or a threat 5 on 5...

That goal was on the pk too.

Wait till he starts putting up power play points. I'm pretty sure he's on the 2nd unit?

Kid is going to be a star.



Edit:
^^^^
I agree, that's what annoys me about the trade, we could have gotten something to help us win a cup now, not 4 years from now.

They were more high on Foligno, we probably could have packaged Schroeder with something for Kassian this year.

It's been quoted/stated a few times in this thread alone -

19 pts @ even strength
2 pts @ short handed (1 assist on a great setup for Pominville, then the solo effort producing a goal which ignited this thread)
= 21 pts total

its nice but it has nothing on this especially b/c its 1 vs 5 + rinne too, not a backup like the goal cody had against hurricanes

http://youtu.be/sUYapNJLOKo

Difference is that was Datsyuk, who is known league-wide as the world's best puck handler in the game... Hodgson is just 23, so to be able to do that at 23 and still growing/developing is phenomenal especially at the NHL level.

You know highlights don't make players. It's relaly about how well you play overall and under stress and pressure. Hodgson may have had one fortuitous goal, but that doesn't guarantee he's good like that all the time.

In the end of the day, it's not that the Canucks lost Hodgson, it's that the Canucks basically traded him with a massive discount.
A legit NHL forward with huge potentially will always worth more than an unproven prospect with only potentially (unless you're a top-3 pick).

Hodgson would have helped now more than Kassian, something that is counter to what MG has said. Maybe Zack may become the next Lucic/Bertuzzi/Benn.... but when you're a contender, you trade to go forward, not backwards.

He nearly scored another shorthanded goal last game. His slapshot entering the zone squeaked through the goalie and just barely stopped on the goal line before the defenseman scooped it out.

An own goal scored in his name would then make him a better player. I get your theory can I learn from you?
