You don't think Kassian being on a bad team makes a difference? Only time will tell, but something tells me Hodgson will not get the same point totals in BUF. The 'Palhssons, Malhotras, Otts, Bollands' of the league will now be checking Hodgson if he's a top 6.

He's been overrated for years after one good season in the OHL.
Although I won't call him useless, I don't think Hodgson would be able to step up if Kesler/Sedin went down. It's tough to replace that kind of offense and if we lose one, we'll be playing a trap-like game-in which we should succeed in. Having Palhsson enables us to do that and with AV, he's always been a very flexible coach.
