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...
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...
In case you haven’t noticed, Max Lapierre is having one heck of a season. Lapierre, who was picked up a year ago at the trade deadline, has brought an element needed to the Canucks. Early on this season, Lapierre filled-in nicely centering the third line while Ryan Kesler was injured and Manny Malhotra was struggling to get his game back. After Kesler got back, Hodgson established...
Puck drop was 7:05, NOT 7:10!
The Buffalo Sabres broke out to an early lead on Saturday, taking advantage of a pair of point shots to allow Ville Leino to snap home his fifth and sixth of the season only minutes into the hockey game.
The Vancouver Canucks couldn’t keep the puck out of their own end in the first five minutes on Saturday, resulting in long night on the bench for...
“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...
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...
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....
Vancouver's Roberto Luongo has been outstanding between the pipes lately at Rogers Arena.
Buffalo's Ryan Miller has been exceptional in goal regardless of the venue.
Luongo and Miller will likely be in net Saturday night in Vancouver as the Western Conference-leading Canucks go for a fifth straight home win in a matchup with a Sabres team coming off back-to-back shutout...
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.
This is the OPEN thread for the Sabres at Canucks gameday!
Stop by and leave some comments.

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...
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...
