The fact that he only has 4 more points in one more game than Kassian, isn't that impressive. He is a year older, and supposed to be the superior offensive player after all. He's also playing with the league's leading scorer.
Kassian brings more to the table than Hodgson. Sorry if you can't come to terms with that. But being a better player, doesn't mean scoring 4 more points. It means playing at both ends of the rink, playing physical, and sticking up for teammates. Those are all aspects of being a good player.
That's certainly debatable. We've already seen Hodgson thrive without the Sedins. Can the same be said for Kassian? Until Kassian can show that he isn't a product of the twins, I'm inclined to say that Hodgson is the better player. Of course there are other things to consider but until Kassian can demonstrate he can play a similar game, with similar offensive results, without the twins, I think Cody wins this argument.
