I would move him along with a good asset or two for a legit young 1st line winger to replace Vanek if he's moved. But either way, he is going to be a tremendous asset for the team and I think Buffalo absolutely won that trade. Kassian is looking like a 2nd/3rd liner at best while Hodgson finished in the top 20 for center scoring this past season. Kassian had a fluke hot start this year leeching off the Sedins and after that he was invisible. Kassian is still young and due to his size/hitting/2 way play he will make the NHL and stay there no matter what, I think he is going to end up a 15-15 or 20-20 guy on a teams 3rd line, and won't be the 30-30 1st line power forward that Vancouver fans thought he would be.
Hodgson leached off Vanek and Pominville.
