Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

What a complete snooze of a deadline. That's what happens with it being in late February instead of mid to late march though. More teams would be more inclined to sell if the deadline was later in the year as too many teams still consider themselves "in the hunt". Ah well, I guess draft day is still a decent day for trades.

I'm pretty pissed with the trade. I'm a huge Hodgson fan and with the year he is having I see no reason as to why he was traded mid-season. Trading him in the off season would be smarter. It doesn't make sense to me why Hodgson, who is producing THIS year and is in the race for the Calder, was traded for Kassian, who will probably be playing in the AHL for the rest of the year. Our scoring depth has taken a huge hit.

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Booth - Kesler - Higgins
Raymond - Malhotra - Hansen
Pahlsson - Lapierre - Bitz

That third line will be a black hole for offense since either Malhotra or Pahlsson will be the one centering it.

But in the end I respect Mike Gillis and co. for their decision because there was almost surely a logical reasoning behind the trade. Gillis has yet to disappoint in his four year tenure in Vancouver.

This deal is definitely a gamble. Will Kassian be the next Bertuzzi/Lucic, or will he end up being a career fourth liner?

Kassian is a great talent so could be worse. Hopefully he isn't a flop. Hodgeson is so talented but we've done fine without him before and we will again. Despite how successful the Canucks were before the trade they need to go in the playoffs a different team than last year.

Sucks that he is having symptoms again and could quite possibly be done for the season. I'm not sure if it's that serious though because he didn't fly back to Pittsburgh he went to Denver with the team and was at practice Thursday morning watching the team take the morning skate.

Anyone see this hit last night?? Probably hit of the year.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Toronto is still going to continue to suck.

We had a blowout last night by the Jets, Devils did it today, and Redwings are doing it now.

7 points from the 8th seed, this is going to be a very interesting end of the season for us.
