Gotta give up talent to get talent and we have some depth at wing. Hodgson is good, young center. It'll be a while before we see who really won this trade.

This is a hate/love. I'm so mad we traded Kassian - his skill set is so rare and it's something this team needs desperately. On the other hand, we just got a good, young center and that is easily the biggest weakness on the team.

Don't know how to feel.

Hodgson is a pivot center, who would probably be a 1/2 line center if he wasn't playing behind Kessler and Sedin...think about it, we just went and got our number 1 point producing center, who is young and on a great contract...how can anyone hate this deal?

Because he's not a fighter apparently. If you have 4 fights in a year that's worth like 25 points to these guys. I'm with you Jay, I'm happy with this. Especially with Goose gone.

This is the reason why Darcy should be shit canned. Yes I understand we needed Center help but in a division with Boston who is tough on this team now? What a joke he is as a GM. Sorry but Vancouver won this deal. Plus Hodgsen had an injury that kept him out awhile last year.

It's not like that, necessarily, I like Kassian because I feel he can be the next Milan Lucic. His physical platy mixed with offensive upside is so rare - but our need at center is so desperate that this just might be worth it. Like I said, mixed feelings.

Agreed. I hope they trade Foligno and Myers because they do not deserve to be a with this bone headed moron Regier.

They weren't tough to begin with. Newsflash here, "toughness"/fighters are probably the cheapest and easiest things to go out and buy a player in free agency. Centers are the most expensive. I think it's a good big picture move.

The thing is that Kassian isn't just a generic "tough guy" in the mold of Kaleta. He has legitimate top 6 potential.

This is a GREAT fucking trade. Holy hell.

Grit and toughness is cheaper and easier to find that game breaking talent like Hodgson. This kid is the type of kid that will grow into a center who scores overtime goals. This is our new captain clutch.
