You think not having a 5ft 9 1/2 lead footed centre with good hands and no defensive game is what ails this team? Wake up FArhan. You been drinking the dudes kool aid.
I share similar opinions to Royaldude but they aren't 1:1. I'm my own man with my own opinions and could careless about RD's opinions (although I do enjoy reading his posts).
It's a moot point now - but I think Hodgson had the ability to score that KEY goal against a weak 3rd/4th line.......or score that all but crucial goal on a 2nd PP unit.
Having no defensive game is a moot point. That's what we have Lapierre and Malhottra for.........along with Kesler. As he did against Toews and Thornton last year, Kesler could have been used to shut them down.....and be an offensive threat.
But again - it's a moot point. CoHo's gone and so I shouldn't have even mentioned it.
However - I'm my own man with my own opinions. I'm not Royaldude's lackey.
You are missing my point GM. THE OFFENSIVE GAME DRIED UP MONTHS AGO. IT HAD FUCK ALL TO DO WITH COHO BEING DEALT. Hodgson was on a 20 point pace from about game 40. The top players (and the pp) on the Canucks dried up. That's on them and the coaching staff and doesn't have anything to do with Coho being moved.
