Call me an old bitter tarded guy in coquitlam nowadays, because I don't give a fcuk if Hodgson was shitty defensively, what did that awesome supremo defensive shut down center in Pahlsson exactly provide in that short 5 game series?? a goal? It was mostly Hansen carrying that line, and he sucks offensively!
Plus I don't give a shit what Hodgson's stats were with that bottom feeder of a team in Buffalo, Canucks gave him ample opportunity somewhat to put up points, and guess what? he did exactly that...as a rookie!!! how many rookies can say they put up decent points and created a lot of scoring chances with the Canucks in recent memory?? Especially with that ass of a coach in AV throwing rookies to the wolves with the Sedin's for a game, they don't produce? instant 4th line to the AHL in 2-3 games.
High point producing players usually can't play defense worth shit and kind of stay that way anyways, but with creating scoring chances they will get paid millions, because consistently putting up points in the NHL is extremely difficult.
And I don't give a fuck if his dad was a prick and wanted more ice time for his kid, as Hodgson as a ROOKIE seemed liked he really wanted to play here and wanted to be the best, whats wrong with a young guy wanting to be the best?
Hank sucked without Danny.
Kesler sucked with his injury, once again.
The twins could move on in a couple of years and with Kesler's numerous injuries who knows what we are left with, mini-mouse Schroeder?
Hodgson was supposed to be our future, I'm sure Cody could play a smarter game after at least a year or two in the league, but anyways he's gone and now we have to hope and build around the twins, and the suddenly injury prone Kesler.
I don't give a shit if I sound bitter, Hodgson had a lot of promise for this sad sack of low scoring producing forwards after the twins as a combo, with too many tweeners, too many two way forwards who lack natural scoring talent, especially in the crucial center position.
Winning has a funny way of fixing things
