The fans and media in Vancouver are still in shock from the trade deadline departure of young gun, Cody Hodgson, from the Vancouver Canucks. The deal happened so quickly and abruptly, that there are still more questions than answers as to what really went down in Van City in the days and weeks leading up to the trade.
The Sabres traded their promising eighteen-wheeler, Zack Kassian, a former...
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...
Kassian/Hodgson Trade Reaction
At about 1pm this afternoon, much like the vast majority of Canucks Nation, following the Cody Hodgson trade I was about ready to take one big step off the top ledge of the highest and handiest, nearby building.
However, it was a little crowded up there.
So then I thought, heck I have some time to wait here while the other jumpers paraded by, why not...
The Buffalo Sabres have acquired rookie center Cody Hodgson in a trade with the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for rookie forward Zack Kassian.
As part of the deal, the teams also traded defenseman with Buffalo sending Marc-Andre Gragnani to Vancouver in exchange for Alexander Sulzer.
The deal was announced by Sabres general manager Darcy Regier on Monday, and reached shortly before...
Today on NHL Trade Deadline day the Vancouver Canucks have made their second move of the day. It’s a blockbuster folks.
They’ve acquired Zach Kassian and Marc-Andre Gragnani for Cody Hodgson and Alexander Sulzer.
Earlier today in trade #1 the Canucks acquired Sami Pahlsson for a couple fourth round draft picks.
This is a stunner folks.
Kassian is a big winger but...
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.
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...
Yes, I panicked yesterday with trying to get Q&A's out to Vancouver writers. I emailed everyone who was a mothercanucker! So, I got two questionnaires back about Cody Hodgson. You saw yesterday's version and now you get another one from the good folks over at our sister's website for bloguin, the Benched Whale. It is the same questions I asked yesterday about Cody...
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...

On the most overhyped day of the year in the NHL, there were very few deals that raised even fewer eyebrows, except for in Vancouver.
This is the home to the one and only deadline deal that shocked the hockey world in 2012. The Vancouver Canucks dealt their prized rookie Cody Hodgson and defenseman Alexander Sulzer to the Buffalo Sabres for a tough...
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...
