The 2nd and 3rd opinions he got from his own doctors agreed with the (incorrect) initial disagnosis done by the team.

And I don't buy that a veteran core of players on the Canucks felt threatened by Hodgson's willingness to succeed. That sounds rather ridiculous infact. The core has been around for a long time. Do you really think that players like Henrik or Kesler would feel threatened that a rookie is coming up and going to take their job or their icetime? Especially since we're taking about the captain and assistant on the team who were both already locked up to long-term contracts?

It's much more likely that they felt that Hodgson was out of line making demands as a rookie - something that no other rookie during their time has done in Vancouver.

Remember this is a veteran team that just came off game 7 of the Cup finals after setting regular season records as the top offensive and defensive team in the league. They knew their only goal now was to win the Cup. Would they really feel threatened that a kid is coming in to take their job, or more likely would they feel upset that a kid is coming into their team and making demands about roles and playing time instead of doing whatever is asked of him to help the team succeed?
Holy s*** man, do you make it a point to ask a stupid amount of rhetorical questions every time you post something ?

I mean wouldn't you question that after reading your last few posts ?
