Hodgson isn't like a glass doll, he had a back injury which was misdiagnosed, both the team doctor and his personal doctor missed the muscle tear.

He was also the first draft pick that Mike Gillis ever made. He's not moving unless the return is PHENOMENAL for something that will put us over the top to win the stanley cup RIGHT NOW

He's got one now. Supposedly he's great in the locker room. He's also great with the fans

He's just a scapegoat. He isn't nearly as bad as people there make him out to be.

Hodgson won't move, see above.

Yeah we wanted Tinordi but as I said before, we're trading for pieces to put us over the top for this year, not for futures.

Canucks aren't just dumping Bieksa for anything, all it takes is one desperate team (see LA Kings + Mitchell, 2 years 3.5mil for a defenceman that hadn't been proven healthy)

In this case, I think that team is going to be Anaheim
