It happens. A player that doesn't work out & wasn't going to work out with a club gets dealt for a similiar player (from the Sabres POV - MAG).

And how is Hodgson's future prospects any better seeing as he's actually likely *dropped* further down the depth chart as a result of the Sabres 2012 draft selections. Another case of a team trading a player who might have a better chance with another team (eg., Kassian for the Canucks & Hodgson for the Sabres).
Dropped? With Roy gone and Ennis playing LW Hodgson is probably their best bet at C. If anything he's risen up the depths.
