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.
Hodgson must have felt li...
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...
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...
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....
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...
The deadline acquisitions of Paul Gaustad and Andrei Kostitsyn will certainly make the Predators a stronger team once they get acclimated to the system. As a result to their added presence, however, head coach Barry Trotz will have the tough job of having to decide which 12 forwards will play – or rather, which ones to sit.“It’s going to be a real healthy thing where they...
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...
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...

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.
“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...
The San Jose Sharks will try to post consecutive wins for the first time in a month when they host the Buffalo Sabres tonight at HP Pavilion.
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.
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...
