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. "I had all my guys around...

Hodgson slots in seamlessly for Sabres

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...

Analyzing the other trade: Sami Pahlsson is a Vancouver Canuck

Lost in the Cody Hodgson hoopla was the fact that the Canucks made another trade on trade deadline day, acquiring Sami Pahlsson for a pair of fourth round draft picks and Taylor Ellington. This was a much more predictable trade than the Hodgson trade (in fact, I named him as a possibility yesterday, Eklund’s got nothin’ on me). The acquisition of Pahlsson is a good one, even...

GARTH: Hodgson's Agent Tweets

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...

Rational and irrational anger: Riley’s rants and raves

Gettin it off my chest! This week, things about the Canucks that drive me crazy. Trading Hodgson WHAT THE @#$@ Where did this trade come from? Cody Hodgson is young, he’s cheap, he’s playing out of position and he’s STILL one of the best third line players in the NHL. He’s probably the most natural goal scorer the Canucks have had since Bertuzzi, and he LOVED Vancouver...

Game 66 Sabres Vs. Canucks: Let Gillis Have It

“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...

Dee Karl: Isles @ Caps: Third Time is a Charm

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...

Hodgson and Sulzer for Kassian and Gragnani: Where Does the Shocking Deadline Deal Leave the Canucks?

AP By Adam Graham (@adam_graham) 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...

GARTH: #CoHo Meets the Vancouver Media Mob

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...

St. Louis Blues vs. Canucks blog: love ’em & hate ‘em

I Got The Blues Oh thank god this game didn’t go to overtime. The St Louis Blues and Vancouver Canucks locked horns in a must-see Thursday game if you had to get up really early Friday morning and were having trouble falling asleep so early in the evening. The game was less of a playoff preview and more of a playoff warning that if you thought a series against Nashville was boring...

Canucks vs. Phoenix Coyotes blog: love ’em & hate ‘em

Swapped Life of Zack & Cody I can guarantee you that interest in a Phoenix road game has never been higher than it was Tuesday. It wasn’t the dazzling charms of Dave Tippett’s exciting brand of up-tempo defensive sludge, but rather the circumstances under which, in some circles at least, some combination of regicide and infanticide not seen since the Shakespearian days had...

Kevin Freiheit: Take Advantage of Struggling Sharks

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...

Game Day Musings

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...
