So we all sat around waiting to hear the "big" news and had less than 20 moves the entire day. If not for the 2:55 pm drama of Cody Hodgson the day would probably have been a complete bust.
Once Brian Rolston cleared waivers, he seemed to be Bridgeport bound. But perhaps as a favor to him, Garth managed to move him to the Boston Bruins along with Mike Mottau. In return Garth received an AH...
BEST OF MAXIM
It had been 2,871 days since Brian Rolston last suited up for the Bruins. And while expectations for the aging forward are much tamer this time around, Rolston is already focusing on improving in the wake of Boston's 1-0 loss to the Senators on Tuesday. "I felt okay. It's good to get that one behind me, for sure," Rolston said of his first game since being re-aquired...
This is close to the blockbuster deal everyone was waiting for. The Vancouver Canucks have dealt Cody Hodgson -- a legitimate Calder Trophy candidate right now -- to Buffalo along with Alexander Sulzer. Hodgson was the tenth overall pick in 2008 and is currently fifth among all rookies in total points with 33 this season -- doing so in fairly limited minutes on a loaded Vancouver...
In the first game of the Cody Hodgson era, Ryan Miller had to make 20 saves on 20 Ducks shots in the third period. Ryan-Getzlaf-Perry were angry after a while because they couldn't beat the Buffalo net minder.
Miller made a total of 43 saves on 43 shots, for his fourth shutout of the season.
After the game, Miller gave all the credit to his D and forwards.
Per Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos, the Boston Bruins have added Brian Rolston from the New York Islanders:
#SNtrade. Rolston from #Isles is a #Bruin. Done.”
In perhaps the most surprising deal on trade deadline day, the Vancouver Canucks acquired forward Zack Kassian from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for rookie forward Cody Hodgson.
The two teams also swapped blueliners, with Marc-Andre Gragnani heading to Vancouver and Alexander Sulzer going to Buffalo.
The 6-3, 214-pound Kassian will provide much needed size...
It was half hour after the trade deadline had officially passed, and there were rumblings of a big deal with Vancouver Canucks, however no one expected that the other team in that deal would be the Buffalo Sabres – but that’s exactly what it was. The Sabres have dealt Zack Kassian and Marc-Ande Gragnani for Cody Hodgson and Alexander Sulzer. This trade coming in addition to...
Canucks swap key pieces with Buffalo
And just like that, the stud is gone.
To the absolute shock of Canucks nation and the entire NHL, talented rookie Cody Hodgson was traded to the Buffalo Sabres yesterday in exchange for “a force” – hard-hitter and winger Zack Kassian.
Fans are surprised that the team canned the All-Star before he’d fully had a chance to prove himself....
The Vancouver Canucks made a pair of trades Monday, adding Blue Jackets center Samuel Pahlsson and acquiring right wing Zack Kassian and defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani from Buffalo in exchange for center Cody Hodgson and defenseman Alexander Sulzer.
The New York Islanders sent veterans Brian Rolston and defenseman Mike Mottau to the Boston Bruins in the minutes before Monday's 3 p.m. trade deadline, multiple sources confirmed.
Per Bob McKenzie on TSN Trade Centre, Vancouver trades Cody Hodgson to Buffalo for Zack Kassian.
added 3:46pm, more to the trade, Canucks get Marc-Andre Gragnani, Sabres receive Alexander Sulzer
The defending Stanley Cup-champion Boston Bruins acquired forward Brian Rolston and defenseman Mike Mottau from the New York Islanders at the trade deadline on Monday without giving up anyone from their NHL roster.
The trade deadline has come and went. The Bruins didn't make a huge splash when the clock ticked to 3:01pm EST. No Rick Nash, no Dustin Brown, no Zach Parise, no Ryan Suter. Instead the Bruins ended Monday with Brian Rolston, Mike Mottau and Greg Zanon, obviously adding more depth than superstar factor. To be fair, I am okay with these deals For Rolston and Mottau they gave...
