Blobby Cat, you need to relax a little regarding people critiques of Kassian. We all want this kid to turn out, he's ours now, why would we want him to fail? Don't mistake's peoples frustration in trading a player who was helping us now, especially in scoring, for a player who quite obviously is nowhere near ready for prime time. Don't you find it baffling that we would use such an asset in Hodgson and move him for a kid who was playing in the minors when we are trying to win now, especially with the age of our core group? I understand not trading Hodgson for a rental, but there must have been a better option than Kassian who could be doing a lot more for us now than what Kassian is providing, which is pretty much nothing. That being said, I don't think the Canucks are in a position to gamble on a kid, we ain't exactly loaded on the farm, to make such gambles. We are about as flat as the Flames on the promising prospects front. Kassian may turn out, but where is the guarantee written on that? There isn't one, it's still remains to be seen, in the mean time we traded a kid who can play NOW.
