Hodgson is in the perfect position for the Canucks. He's being groomed to move up once the Sedins eventually retire much like when Kesler was playing on the third line. He also has turned that third line into a scoring line all the while being on his elc. On top of that he is starting to flourish. Besides goalie, I think strength up the middle is critical to continued sucess. Althou he is far from being untouchable, I'd be very against trading him in most any situation.

I'd also like to add that the Canucks aren't exactly hurting when it comes to defensive prospects. We need someone that is already in their prime that is more the same age as our current core or is a vet bringing Cup experience.
