So Cody is up 1 week before the deadline apparently tomorrow nights game will have many scouts present….. Reading to far into this?? The Canucks don’t need Hodgson in the line up due to injury… The Canucks secondary scoring has been better as of late and they are getting players back on the back end so no pressing need for Hodgson? His play is getting back to where it was earlier this season since being sent down.. No secret the Canucks are locked in at the one and two C spot for years to come and aside from Detroit most teams as favorites for the cup has made some sort of move? It is not like Gillies to buy for a long run but that strategy has not gotten his team out of the second round could this be the year he pulls the trigger on a deal that brings us a piece for a long run?? This is being touted as an audition for the 4th line center job http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/C...769/story.html
so is this the Canucks way of saying this is the job available get it done kid or were brining someone else in for that job. Does not mean they deal him but if he can't get it done who will Any offers??? (with or without Cody)
I think it is possible that he is good enough that they trade someone else. I also think if he doesn't prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is an NHL player in the next little bit, he will be moved.
I doubt it simply for the reason that Gillis has stated he will not be making significant changes going into the deadline. Any deal that would be large enough to warrant moving Hodgson would be considered "significant".
He's not competing with anybody else on the team, we don't have a 4th line C this year so far.
He was sent down for cap reasons.
Yeah I know, and with no one on LTIR I feel like if he proves 100% to be ready, he will stick and someone, maybe Tambellini, will be traded just to clear a contract. Unless the "13th man" is on a two-way deal, in which case I agree no trade will be made. I was just gasping for straws trying to make the absurd topic work, tbh.
You obviously read only what you wanted to!
One of 3 things are going to happen with this call up from most likley to least!
1.) He gets the job as 4th line Center and will be with the club for the rest of the year and playoffs.
2.) He gets sent down and they make a deal at the deadline for a 4th line C
3.) (OP least likley) He gets delt and they most likley get a 4th line C in the deal!
Does this make sense or do you want to nick pick???
