That said, there's still no way Gillis would have traded Hodgson for a similar player who's further behind in his development, regardless of how high that 2nd round pick is. I hope that makes sense to you.
If you don't want to see people 'bashing' the Leafs then you can't post on these boards. The large nature of the fanbase will lead to an increased number of poorly thought out posts, which other members will respond to. As a Canucks fan I can sympathize with you there.
You wouldn't have traded your 2012 1st for Hodgson?
This is what scares me. If our fans/media expect Kassian to come in and play better than Cody right away then it's setting expectations WAY too high. I wish we had the type of media that just let our prospects develop at their own pace.
Kadri's not worthless. He's just a similar player to Cody but behind in development. There would be no impetus to make that trade.
Agreed on both. Especially Drury and Hodgson. I just hope you can find a defensively minded top 6 center to matchup against other top lines, as Cody is nowhere near ready for that.
I meant i would trade any prospect (except Gardiner) as well as the 1st.
