Hodgson is 'two way' . The guy is SLOW , and couldnt hit or fight his way out of a paper bag. We all saw that for years in Vancouver.

In fact, this whole conversation is ridiculous. Kassian is bigger, faster, stronger, can hit, fight and is a year YOUNGER .

Yet , even the only category where Hodgson should be ahead of Kassian, the big guy has the same amount of points and more goals.

So far, Kassian is kicking Hodgsons rear end. Hodgson is a minus three now.
Hosgson's speed is noticeably better than last year, and he is improving defensively. Also, irrelevant that Kass is a whopping 1 year younger; Cody lost a year to injury. They're pretty much in the exact same spot developmentally. We all know Kassian has good hockey sense for a power forward, but Cody's hockey sense is through the roof. He should outscore Kassian more often than not going forward. Kassian obviously brings the physical game too though, but that's the trade off.
