I don't disagree. Anyone who saw him play last year would know that he's not ready for the first line duty that he's getting. Not surprised at all that he's getting lit up.
That said his largest detractors do seem to be bitter Canuck fans (most of whom have only seen bits and pieces of his games) piling on a player traded from their favorite team. Sabers fans and more importantly the sabers coaching staff seem to be quite happy with what they got.
On a side note Hodgson is still a regular on the Sabers Pk and his numbers seem fine, though the sample size is still quite small.
There are folks who want to carp about trading CoHo, especially now that Kes is still out.
But realistically, there was no other good option for GMMG, and he got a good strong winger for him.
Had we kept CoHo, he would be playing 3rd line (when Sedin & Kes are playing) and be squeezed for minutes.
There would likely be no place for Schroeder, he would still be stifled in the AHL.
Gillis figured that by trading CoHo, he would open up a spot for J.S., and probably felt that Schroeder had better 2-way potential than CoHo.
Throw in the extra drama from CoHo's dad & agent, and it becomes pretty easy to see why it happened as it did.
