"Ironically, earlier that day, Hodgson’s teammates had playfully taped a “C” "

"Ironically, earlier that day, Hodgson’s teammates had playfully taped a “C” onto his practice sweater."

What does that tell you about the way players on the Canucks felt about Hodgson? To me it says allot, they felt he was to big for his britches, he needed a slap down. How do you read it?

This is an article that praises Hodgson for showing good character while trashing the Canucks for how stupid they've handled the situation in the media, as well as Rich Winter.

Hard to guage the issue of the "C" in terms of his team mates. And I suppose one can always draw their own conclusions about Hodgson's character, but part of his modus operandi has been to have others speak out on his behalf while he seemingly takes the high road.

One can form their own conclusions about his character from that.

This crap again? Really?

No matter where you come down on the trade, it's been beaten to death.

The fact that the article is so one sided and they use that as an indication that the players loved him? I think its a huge missread by Hodgson and the writer. To me it says he was not liked at all in the dressing room.

There's more than one way to read that article, including that the Canucks veteran core felt a need to slap down an uppity youngster.

Is our team that immature that they all pick on young players and try to humiliate them as you suggest?

Well, there does seem to be a lot of pranksters on the team. (I'm looking at you Bieksa, Kesler, Burrows and Lapierre.....)

Honestly, of all the things, it was the comments about Hodgson's "big head" that made it clear to me that maybe he just wasn't very well liked in the room or at the very least that his teammates were aware of the issues surrounding him. Guys like Bieksa aren't stupid, he very well knew what the implications of saying that would be.

To me it says you are cheering for the logo, and will accept anything the team tells you. I'm not picking on you, because you're not alone.

Honestly, if Mike Gillis hired a re-animated Hitler as head coach, there are Canuck fans who would praise it as some sort of brilliant "moneypuck" hiring.

Again, if anybody had suggested trading Hodgson for Kassian the day before the trade deadline, they would have been ripped apart for even thinking such a thing. But now that it's happened, it's the greatest trade in the history of sport. And even if it turns out poorly, that's OK, because Hodsgon ate babies and tortured puppies.

I'm willing to bet that more than a few Canuck players had a laugh if they read the article and the fact that Cody was "bragging" about having a C taped to his sweater.

I don't think they are tolerant when a player puts themselves before the team. Another example was M.Schneider.

because when you get a group of guys together allot of things happen, whether you think its mature or immature has little relevance. Things like taping a "C" to a player practice jersey is definetly not a positive thing. Its a way of telling a player something.

Male bonding is not hugs and kiss's.

Never said it was hugs and kisses, but if players are picking on a 22 year old kid then it brings them all down to his level too. Not to mention I would expect this "mature" team to just ignore all the antics and focus on hockey.

You're referring to Keenan, if I'm reading you right?

While you may be right in saying he was not well-liked, this is not a good thing - it means players who don't fit in get shipped out (or not re-signed - mitchell, ehrhoff, ...) in order not to lose "the room".

I side with Deng Xiaoping on this one - "It doesn't matter the color of the cat as long as it catches mice"

To be honest I think it's time to move on. Hodgson is gone and Kassian is here.

This.

The veterans were in the room and they can hear his interviews...

Looking back, the ice-time issue was prevalent throughout.

Im not going to link it again, but you can find the video on CDC of Hodgson discussing his January rookie of the month award. He is asked whether its additional icetime that has helped his production (when clearly he was playing the same amount, just getting plum zone starts etc) he tip toes around the question...Hindsight makes me want to puke in my mouth everytime I have watched since the trade.


All that said....why do we need to re-hash this, AGAIN?


It's a joke article, it isn't even factual journalism...its Cody love fest piece, that brought nothing new to the table. I'd sure like to read somewhere that Cody's band on specialists misdiagnosed his injury for a year too.

Yet Bieksa is a hero because he does an interview pretending to be Kesler, we have all seen the antics while players are being interviewed on tv, somebody playing a joke while the other player is concentrating on the camera, the list goes on and on.

Anybody who thinks the "room" is all work and no play is very naive.

Taping a "C" onto a practice jersey is akin to the old kangaroo court. Your telling the player he is getting to big for his britches.
