I agree that most people did, including myself. But that was mainly because people look at point totals over any other aspect of the game first.

Hodgson was putting up more points and will do so most likely for the rest of his career but that was not what Vancouver needed. They needed a physical presence, exactly what Edmonton now needs.

If you look at who is going to put up more points than you are missing the point of the trade.. I would be more than happy to trade someone along the lines of Hemsky/MPS for someone less skilled and more physical.. Assuming that they have enough skill to play in the top 6, but do not need to be a point producing beast.
