Kassian vs Hodgson

I say Kassian, both are pretty close though. -_- I forgot to put a poll.

EDIT: Thanks for putting poll mod/admin.

Cody's still better, but that may change someday. Kass isn't restricted as much, he has the size and decent speed. I still think the trade was a huge goof, because of the timing and cirumstances. As far as the 1 on 1 comparison though, I like Kass a lot more.


ZK is good at hockey.

Very happy Kass is getting it all together, but there's not a chance in hell I'd trade Hodgson back for him.

A couple good games and everyone is jumping on the Kassian bandwagon. Voting Hodgson until I see a lot bigger sample size. And speaking of voting, where's the actual poll?

Undersized skilled center vs Hulking power forward with big time grit and top line talent and vision.

Hmmmm, which is harder to find..

1. Cody Hodgson is 6'0", 185. If anything that's protypical size for skilled offensive players.

2. The guy that's a center is harder to find, almost always.

A skilled offensive center > skilled offensive winger

powerforward anything > skilled center when the points are similar etc

that being said, Buffalo filled a need and VAN filled a need, I personally think that Kassian will wreck the league with hits and stuff but good deal for all

I don't think it's a bad deal for either team, Buffalo had Marcus Foligno and the Canucks had Kesler and Sedin... if anything it makes tremendous sense.

Canuck fan voting for Hodgson. I absolutely love what Kassian has been providing lately, but I feel like Hodgson will be the better player.

Similar to everyone hopping on the Hodgson bandwagon once he left Vancouver.

Too early to tell. Hodgson has more potential but I'm very happy with what we have.

This trade can't be judged just yet. Wait a few years then come back to me.

BOTH have had fabulous starts to the season. I love Kassian but I still wish the best for Cody too.

Uh not quite. You don't have to belittle Hodgson to make yourself feel good about Kassian. That's stupid.

Stop comparing the players. It made sense for both teams. Buffalo needed a skilled center and had an emerging Marcus Foligno and The Canucks lacked toughness. Both players have consistency issues.

Win - Win.

I'd take Hodgson over Kassian every single time. As someone who has watched Kassian play both here and in Rochester I rarely have been impressed. He's playing with the Sedins twins on first line and receiving power play time...He should easily put up points with 2 of the best players in the league. Buffalo needed centers, Canucks needed grit. We had Foligno who was so much better then Kassian at every single aspect of the game. So Kassian was expendable as he was not really doing much of anything well for the Sabres.

The Sedins were pretty invisible the entire game. Infact our coach even called them out somewhat which never happens. They've been rusty and Zack was the one making that line noticeable.

To be fair, Hodgson is hardly playing next to scrubs in Buffalo right now, but as of right now i would say Hodgson until Kassian can prove that he can uphold this level of play.

I ****ing called this poll too

They are as close to equal value as you can get. Which one you prefer depends entirely on team needs.

Buffalo was short on highly skilled centers and they took Hodgson. Great move for them.

Vancouver was short on big talented wingers and they took Kassian. Great move for them.

If you're a team like Pittsburgh or Carolina that's absolutely set down the middle, you take Kassian.

If you're a team like Dallas or Edmonton which has an abundance of wingers and not so many centers, you take Hodgson.
