Even if Hodgson's dad was a head case and Hodgson needed to be move, why on earth would one trade him for a "work in progress" like Zack Kassian?
Brilliant trade eh. Trading Hodgson for a player who was parked in the minors that has baggage. LOL! Wow.[/quote ]Talk about baggage how about the great Hodgson a player who lets daddy, agent, Roberts do his dirty work for him. Come back in 3 years and talk about this trade before you try to run your fukin smack. Malcontents need to be killed before they spread cancer in a team.
Not sure how much you guys watch the Sabres, but they are my eastern team. I cheer for them almost as much as I cheer for the Canucks...almost. I've seen Kassian play a bit more than some on these boards, and yes he is a work in progress, but he's got a good upside and he's got good size.
A trade like this takes time, and so far, all we know is that Cody...'could've' done this and 'could've' done that...no guarantees. No one has won or lost on this trade yet...but bashing that decision is kinda funny considering Cody got more ice time with the Sabres, didn't produce much until nearly the end, and found out that he was on the ice and partly responsible for goals getting past Miller and Enroth.
