The problem with proclaiming us winners if Kassian is as good as Hodgson in 3 years is the fact that the next 3 years could be this organizations best chance to win the cup in the next 2 or 3 decades. Having the superior player now is extremely valuable and has to play into the decision of whether or not we 'won' the trade.

I don't begrudge Gillis for dealing Hodgson. If a player is being a malcontent it forces your hand. It's the notion that we built him up to be better than he was that I find makes Gillis look silly. Especially now when Hodgson sits 4th in the NHL in even strength points behind Crosby, Stamkos and E. Staal.

As of right now, it's hard to say we're even money or better to win this trade. It's possible, just not probable.

I'm just ****ing sick of reading about Hodgson this and Hodgson that on the Canucks forum. You would think he was the guy that said "I love you" and then proceeded never to call you again after that one night, judging by the way some people pine after him.

We just need to give Kassian time...as we did with Bertuzzi.

Ever since he wanted his name pronounced all fancy, I stopped liking him.

Good player, sad to see him go. Wish him the best.

Glad we got a good player in return, happy to watch him grow.

Hodgson is every bit the long-term project that Kassian is. You can't trust the kid defensively, he's not ready to play a prominent role on a good team. You can't hide centre's in the playoffs. I disagree he's the superior player now, our coach wouldn't put the kid on the ice the way he's playing defensively, nor should he. The idea is to win hockey games... not have pretty boy out there racking up stats.

You're projecting, Gillis never said that or anything close to it. They built up his value is not the same as they built him to be something he's not.

I guess it depends where you're sitting because imo we've already won.

I have no idea why an actual Canuck fan would care about this anymore. A Hodgson fan maybe, but a fan of this hockey team?

Not at this point .

Not gonna lie, the day Cody Hodgson was traded was one of the most upset days I have ever had. That hit me worse than losing the Cup.

Here's the thing peeps - salary cap + lower UFA. It's not like you lose these guys forever and never get a chance to sign a decent young player again. You'd think we were back in the 80/90s with 31 yo UFAs making twice the salary of 24 yo. Decent 24yos are getting the same coin as UFAs, the advantage is far less because it's all about capspace in todays world. Roy and Ribiero are about as UFAs they bring the same production Hodgson does.

Besides which Erik Karlsson is much better than Hodgson. Complain about how Hodgson cost us Karlsson if you want something to complain about.

We traded the better hockey player. That is all there is to it. Hodgson plays a more important position, is more skilled. ''But we need to beat Boston'' lol.

Strongly disagree with all 3 points.

Hodgson is clearly the better player at this point IMO.

Building up a player's value is saying you made them look better than they were.

I don't know how we've won the trade with a huge surplus of wingers, no centre depth and Kassian toiling on the 3rd and 4th line.

RFA end of season.

"My dad told me I'm as good as Stamkos if someone just let me hang out at the other teams' blueline. So I want $8.0mil a year for 5 years. I'm willing to take a discount here if you give me Perraults #11. I'll take 8.0mil for that"

Probably more "fair" to compare Hodgson of last season to Kassian of this season (given age/draft year). Both times, players are/were "under the thumb" of AV.

The difference here is that Hodgson could do absolutely no wrong last season to our fans. He could give up the puck 6 times a shift and there would be a ready made excuse.

Not sure why anyone thought Kassian would keep it up all season long. I stick to my 10 goals 10 assist season would be a success for him.

That is better when comparing the players head to head but when deciding who won the trade we have to look at what contributions we would have got from these players, last year and this year. Hodgson being a year older and further along in his development is what makes the trade look worse...

What made this trade worse is that Gillis didn't bother on filling that hole he created by dealing Hodgson (center). Pahlsson wasn't a solution - either short or long-term wise.

I don't disagree that we didn't need to add muscle to our lineup but you aren't accomplishing much if you fix one hole by creating another.

i liked hodgson because he had a ridiculously good slapshot and had a penchant for nailing it right off the post and in - i like it not because it was a good shot but because it sounded good

to be honest if we kept him and he got 10g/10a but every one of those goals was a PING! SCORES goal id be happy
