Will Hodgson be booed in Vancouver?

He has played a game in Vancouver after that trade, but it was like a week after and since then we have found out a lot more details about why that trade was made. Will he be booed/cheered or just be treated like any other player?

I doubt it. He didn't demand a trade, he just irritated management enough that they wanted to wash their hands of him. If anything, he would probably get cheered by the anti-MG Canucks fans.

Depends.
Casual fans probably will not...
But hardcore fans...
And most people from here who can afford to go to games...
Probably will.
Many of them are well-aware of what happened behind the scenes...
And it is hard not to boo him.

All booing him would do is inflate his already massive ego. He'll think it means we're sore about losing him, because you know, he's so great.

Also, for the lulz, if we could afford it imagine if the canucks offer sheeted Cody

Over $3,364,391 to $5,046,585 - 1st round pick, 3rd
Over $5,046,585 to $6,728,781 - 1st round pick, 2nd, 3rd

Probably not. The people who will actually boo him can't afford to attend the games.

I don't see reason to boo him. Just because Gillis completely trashed him in a manner that you rarely see GM's do because its unprofessional? Doubt it.

Can't see why he'd get any particularly significant response out of the crowd.

I would guess most fans at the Rog are going to be more influenced by a players contribution on the ice than by what their agent said on twitter or what the GM said about their agent or dad or whatever.

On the ice Cody was an effective player for this team for about half a season, so I don't imagine he's going to be the focal point upon returning (again) unless he's a major factor in that game.

I'm sure he'll get some polite applause from the crowd, as hopefully will Christian Ehrhoff who actually had a major impact on the ice as a Canuck.

At the rate he's going he might be booed in Buffalo before he makes it here.

Booing returning players should be reserved for traitors like Jagr, Heatley and Alfredsson.

That was tongue in cheek. I bet they do boo Alfie though. What they should do is wait until the 11 minute mark as usual, and then... ALFIE SUCKS!

Well, there is some secondary supporting evidence (like Ritch Winter's twitter escapades) as well.

Booing would be pretty lame.

Having Kassian slam him into the boards and say "thanks for keeping the number warm for me" or "tell your Dad thanks for getting me out of that **** hole of a city" would be much more appropriate.

It's also naive to dismiss what we know as simply the lie of a GM. He didn't do a prospect swap with his top prospect for the hell of it.

Friedman and Eric Francis have had reports on corroborating Gillis' take on Hodgson, too.
