Who would I rather have if I was starting a team from scratch? Hodgson. It's harder to find centers with top-line talent than wingers with top-line talent (even big, mean ones).
That's basically irrelevant though considering no one is ever starting an NHL team from scratch. It's an impossible poll to answer honestly, every team has different needs. If you lack size and grit but are set at C, you pick Kassian. If you have a load on the wing but need help down the middle, you pick Hodgson. It really was a perfect trade. Pareto-efficient reallocation of resources.
Hodgson is a better player right now, though. But that also doesn't matter very much.
