      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

uh...

he outscores all the forwards on our team..

a lot of good the lack of goals from our 4, 5 and 6 million forwards did for us eh??

The hate based on nothing for this kid is ridiculous

I think the respect Gillis showed his two star goaltenders through the last year up to this weekend shows how much we can believe gillis and the way he paints things after he makes an unpopular move.

Dude, screw Hodgson. Kid is a dick. I hope Buffalo lets him walk for being a spoiled brat or he signs a huge contract and cripples the team's cap situation because of their stupidity.

Yes based on nothing. Sorry I won't kiss the ass of some punk who wants to take the easy road to top minutes. He only outscored our forwards due to playing in the East where it is easier to score and on a team that played him top 6 minutes which he whined his way into because he wouldn't be able to pass Sedin or Kesler on our depth chart. Hodgson's defence is also lacklustre which being a centre and having the heightened defensive responsibility is a gamble. Sure he scores but he's on the ice for a lot of goals against too.

And you know this how???? The one person who says all the negativity is the same guy who cant seem to talk his own head out of his a$$. After the way Gillis and our genius team doctors misassessed his back problems then tried throwing him under the bus in the process. Would you blame Cody for wanting out?

Oh yes, cuz Henrik and Daniel had far less ice time than Hodgson, that's why Hodgson scored more. And Buffalo is a much weaker team than the Canucks so opponents can focus their energy on shutting down top players more easily.

Easily, he would have won the Calder had we kept him, playing 4-5 minutes less than any other rookie with comparable points on a 3rd line role.

Where the others were all playing top line minutes with PP time.

He will indeed get north of $4.5 million because he really is a good player no matter what we think of him. My gripe is the return, Gillis could have should have pried a pick as well.

You're dead wrong about that.

I've done these comparisons before - Hodgson was playing the same amount of minutes as some of the Calder candidates of the last two years - something that only made the ice-time controversy all the more ridiculous, given the fact very few teams have a one-two punch like Henrik and Kesler.

Hodgson was getting over 13 minutes a game, including 2 minutes on the powerplay.

Gallagher got 11.43 minutes 5 on 5 this past season and 2.5 pp this past season in Montreal - and finished second in Calder voting.

Galchenyuk got 11.05 minutes 5 on 5 and 1.00 on the pp.

Guys like Huberdeau and Landeskog have gotten a few more 5 on 5 minutes a game than Hodgson was, but then again, they were playing are far inferior teams, and they aren't as challenged in a two way sense as Hodgson was.

Henrique for example had a postive corsi on and relative corsi, getting only 47.4% offensive zone starts and facing a considerably stronger quality of competition than Hodgson.

Gabriel Landeskog, likewise, had a +9.8 relative corsi, +6.3 corsi on, faced very strong competition (+1.7 as opposed to Hodgson's -.2), and did that with 48% offensive zone starts - very strong underlying numbers.

Hodgson had more tailored minutes - weaker competition and ozone starts, had very strong linemates in Higgins and Hansen, and yet his -6.8 relative corsi put him in the range of shutdown defensive zone start players like Rome and Pahlsson.

The truth is that he wasn't good enough to command more minutes, particularly soft and absent in his own zone play.

In any event, his agent and Tony Gallagher sparked one of the silliest NHL controversies in recent memory - and the irony was that AV was using him precisely to his strengths and sheltering him from his poor defensive development.

Not sure why you're comparing Hodgson last year to guys who were playing this year....corsi ratings or not, In my opinion he was a strong candidate, as in the minds of some of the "experts and analysts"
