He was an early bloomer who has major speed and strength issues. It's as if he has cement in his skates. We dominated that trade. Give Kassian his due. He's the way better prospect. Hodgson isn't very good. I don't see him improving much more, whereas Kassian has a lot more room for growth.
I'm glad we were able to trade Hodgson, and like you I have watched the Sabres games this year.
I would qualify the "he sucks" comment with "He sucks in the role he is placed in."
Hodgson did relatively well in the sheltered role he was placed in here.
He is misused n Buffalo and the confidence that he has built up is fading very quickly. That seems quite clear to me. half the time he looks confused and behind the play.
You can't put kids in roles they are not suited or ready for...and he is not suited or ready for first line mnutes at this stage in his career.
And this misuse could further compromise his development.
