Based on how Cody's playing in Buffalo, Sabres fans are ecstatic to have Cody on their team. Check their PGT threads for both games so far.http://hfboards.hock...d.php?t=1124219
Well... that certainly was something.
Outside of Miller, the positive vibes I get from Hodgson's play are positively swelling right now. Another really good effort from that line but guys need to start finishing his set-ups.
All Miller in this one, Hodgson's line was great but should have more goals in this game.
I hate to put ugly on a win but Gerbe and Leino we're brutals in the 3rd, so many turnovers !!!
Miller played OK tonight
CoHo was the straw that stirred the drink on that line tonight
Sekera looked solid
Ehrhoff was mostly solid
Pominville was grinding all game
Myers was not his normal self
Regehr hurt ... Yikes
Sylvester ... My god, he's like spoiled milk mixed with vomit.
G: Hodgson's passing is exceptional.
I am going to expand this to: (GGBU) Great, Good, Bad and Ugly
Ennis, Hodgson and Stafford...best line for the Sabres tonight.
They're calling it the EHS line and are all reporting that it was their best line. Having watched both games, I can confirm that Hodgson made that second line tick. He took command of the puck at times and made things happen. Ennis, Hodgson and Stafford have found immediate chemistry.http://hfboards.hock...=1120941&page=4
I'm really jumping th gun here, but if ennis and stafford continue to show chemistry with him, do we keep stafford around for another season?
Here's a really telling indication of how the Sabres are playing right now.
Bad: Everyone else
Ugly: Regehr injured, Miller dinged up.
Both teams are getting exactly what they want from their new players. Kassian has brought something new to the Canucks. Hodgson has brought something new to the Sabres. It's turning out to be a very equal trade so far, as both have really stood out in a positive way.
