Less than a week ago Cody Hodgson was dealt away to the Buffalo Sabres. Tonight, on Hockey Night in Canada, the man that was supposed to ensure Vancouver remained at the top of the league for the next decade returns. Itâs hard to say what the reaction will be for Cody. With...
BEST OF MAXIM
With the post-trade posturing by teams, general managers and fans to promote the view that this is a trade that helps both teams, often thats far from the case, and considering the wealth of draft picks and prospects exchanged at the deadline, its not always clear which team emerges as the victor in the long run.
While we promoted Vancouvers and Nashvilles roster upgrades as strong...
Lindy Ruff gave his tam the day off in Vancouver after impressive back to back shootouts in Anaheim and San Jose, respectively.
While his team mates were chillin, Cody Hodgson was brought before the Vancouver media to answer at the questions that have been swirling around Vancouver ever since the rookie-of-the-year candidate was sent packing on trade deadline day.
Canucks host Sabres Saturday Night
The Vancouver Canucks will welcome Cody Hodgson back to Vancouver on Saturday night – this time in an enemy uniform. One of the more curious trade deadline moves will get a chance to prove its worth when Hodgson and Alexander Sulzer attempt to make the Canuck rue the day that the Canucks moved them to Buffalo for Zach Kassian and Marc-Andre Gragnani...
The ‘Hoff is Big in Germany
When the expansion cousin Buffalo Sabres come to town on Saturday, they’ll feature on their roster an ex-Canuck that recently left the team under controversial terms who chased the ice time and glory over a shot at the Cup.
Clearly the two parties had different goals, but to hear some fans talk letting this player go would kill the Canucks‘ chances...
Robyn Regehr will miss tonight's game in Couver. He hurt his hip when he was ridden off a puck on the wall, late in period two in San Jose and didnt play at all in period three.
Recently acquired Alex Sulzer will take Regehr's place on the blue line for tonight's game.
Marcus Foligno has been recalled from Rochester.
More to come....
Ryan Miller made 39 saves for his second shutout in as many nights and Drew Stafford capitalized on a San Jose turnover to score the only goal in the Buffalo Sabres 1-0 victory over the Sharks on Thursday night.
Stafford scored his 13th goal late in the first period and Miller made the lead stand as the Sabres earned at least one point in a season-high seventh straight game to move...
16 games in 31 days during the month of March. The Sabres have already one the first one, much in thanks to Ryan Miller.
Four points out of the playoffs and many fans never thought the Sabres would even come this close to the final playoff spot.
Now, the Sabres have put themselves in a position to get into the top eight. Buffalo trail the Jets by four points, but still have...
Ville Leino scored twice in the first 3:44 and Ryan Miller made 32 saves to help the Buffalo Sabres beat the NHL-leading Vancouver Canucks 5-3 on Saturday night, spoiling Zack Kassian's first games against his former teammates.
Kassian, dealt to Vancouver along with Marc-Andre Gragnani in exchange for Cody Hodgson and Alexander Sulzer at the trade deadline Monday, scored his...
“Cody was something special…”
The conversation has been divided; as it usually is about anything in Canucks Nation.
Resistance is Futile, so why do I resist?
Would you cheer if Cody Hodgson scored Saturday night? The guys on TEAM1040 kicked it around this morning with Jason Botchford saying you aren’t a true fan if you cheer for a Hodgson goal.
I have nothing against Jason...

On Friday night, the Ottawa Senators will play host to a desperate Chicago Blackhawks team searching for points in a brutal Western Conference playoff race.
Although the Senators - 34-23-8 with seventeen games remaining - and Blackhawks -34-24-7 with seventeen games remaining - have nearly identical records, the two sides are in incredibly different positions as the 2011-2012...
This week's Authority Report discusses a new basketball offer, Tyler Ennis, Justise Winslow, and more. For football, it discusses new offers, a new exercise Arizona has been doing, and more.
Sorry for disappearing for a bit there.
This week highlights my favorite games of the year, mostly because of the 10 p.m. and later start times. I'm really looking forward to Saturday's game against Vancouver, as many fans probably are as well.
Jason Pominville has been the only Sabres player to participate in all 63 games this season. Now, after acquiring Cody Hodgson...
It’s another edition of Musings on a game day. How convenient. It’s also the first since the deadline came and went and the deadline day inactivity was a blessing or curse; depending on your point of view of course.
The biggest winner of the deadline day for me: Buffalo. I think Cody Hodgson should be a quality center for a long time to come and any team that can get a 1st AND...
