Difference is, Hodgson continued to receive prime linemates/icetime.

He responded with 28 points in 32 games.

Before those 32 games he had 8 points in 20 games with Buffalo.

After those 32 games he had 6 points in 16 games with Buffalo.

One could argue he simply rode a Vanek-Pomminville wave.

Hard to tell at this point.

But one thing is certain: you don't need to back-check to receive prime icetime in Buffalo.

Different story in Vancouver.

WAY too early for you to be saying "Buffalo absolutely won that trade".

Hopefully it turns out to be a great trade for both teams.

We shall see....
Yep, you are totally right about this. Really shows that you don't watch our games.

That is Eric Staal that he just back-checked and took the puck from btw.
