One more trade deadline move for Darcy and most likely another swing and miss for our GM.
Tropp, Kassian and Gausted have had 100 X more of an impact for their team since the trade than Hodgson has.
Hodgson's first game gave us promise, but now he is in our zone defending rather then producing in the opposition's zone. Kassian for Hodgson was a terrible trade. People need to think about this; There are no centers available, a position very very very hard to come by.
Do we really believe that Vancouver who only had Sedin and Kesler, felt that those two were enough to have as depth to trade away Hodgson? Sure he was a third liner there, but if he was as good as the typical fan thinks, wouldnt Vancouver hold on to him, especially when they dont have any prospects on the Horizon.
Do we really think they valued Kassian that much? No. Think about this; Buffalo has sucked all year, however, for our crappy team, Kassian couldnt stay called up. Now lets think about Vancouver. They were the best team in the league last year, the best team in the league this year, but for some reason, with all of their talent, Kassian has what it takes to stay in the NHL with them, but not with the Sabres?
Hopefully because I am writing this, Hodgson will get a hat trick tonight, but I doubt it.
