It felt like a massive downgrade. I can't let my disdain for Hodgson go. I wish I could. On the flip side, Kassian was just a victim of a teams positional need for a centre, so he was traded. Buffalo was essentially given an offer they couldn't refuse.
He didn't burn your city the way Hodgson did for us
"Burn your city"...yeah, I'd stay away from that metaphor, personally.
Canucks fan wishing Hodgson all the best with the Sabres and also loving the hell out of Kassian tonight.
I'll rely on Sabres fans' judgment if they say Foligno made Kassian obsolete; don't see enough Sabres games to have seen it personally. Been trying to with the free Centre Ice Preview that's going on now, though.
