When we all first heard Bob McKenzie utter the words "Small piece," "big trade," "Buffalo Sabres," "Vancouver Canucks," and "Zack Kassian" all within five seconds, everybody was on high alert. Heart rates jumped, minds were racing, and people wanted to know what on Earth was going on. Unfortunately, CDC was down, so we don't have the live reactions of Canucks fans here as the details were gradually being leaked. Fortunately, HFBoards' Canucks section was able to provide evidence of what people were thinking in Vancouver; in a sense, it was our mini twitter-verse, with some amusing reactions.

Here is the TSN feed that most people were watching when the news first broke:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06Tz_SkksLE

How did fans react? I've recapped it all here:

Chapter 1: Steve Staios?!?!

It all began minutes earlier with an imposter on Twitter, @JamieMcLennen29 (not the real Jamie McLennan), reporting that Steve Staios had been traded to Vancouver.

12:27 PM PST: @JamieMcLennen29: Canucks acquire Steve Staios from Islanders for 6th round draft pick #tradecentre #isles #canucks


Canucks fans were certainly puzzled, and Steve Staios quickly started trending on Twitter.

http://hfboards.hock...1120307&page=22

Ugh, Staios?


staios lololol


****, really Staios? Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo


Until people all realized within a minute that it was a fake.

God people, it's a fake twitter account you fools!


Be careful of Twitter accounts from hockey players whose names are spelled wrong


Oh thank god... I thought Gillis lost his mind.


More in the next post...

I would've rather had no trade than Staios so I'm happy we got trolled.


All of this... in the midst of the Brian Burke presser:

burkes tie is tied!!!!!!


Burke says the exact same thing every single year, like word for word.


Suddenly, Ben Kuzma reports that there's a dman coming Vancouver's way:

12:32 PM: Ben Kuzma ‏ @benkuzma
The wait for Gillis till on. Maybe a D-man coming #Canucks way. #notsayinjustsayin


... and the interest continues to gain momentum.

Watch it be Staios.


It's going to be a minor trade deal...

Jimmythescot missed all the action. All of it.

Ugh. I was too busy looking for congratulating a troll pics.

I'm off to hide under my bed.


And somebody was unlucky at the Team Store.

Anyone want to buy a Hodgson jersey.. Like new, bought it last week.


No! I just bought his jersey


That's what keslerburrows is thinking. What's on keslercrosby's mind?

gillis is overrated!!!!

Chapter 4: Gragggna-- Myers. Bob Said Myers, Right?

A minute after the news about Hodgson, reports begin that Vancouver has indeed acquired a defenseman.

McKenzie speculates "young, high profile defensemen" from Buffalo to Vancouver. Oh dear God. Myers?


"Young, high-profile defenceman" from Buffalo...like, 6'8 high?


And suddenly everyone's hyped about the trade again.

Kassian and Myers... do it baby.


**** Gillis we better be getting a lot more than ****ing Kassian!!! Myers better be on his way too


If we get Myers out of it I might be okay with it.


Only and only if Myers is coming back, will this be something i can accept.

Interlude 2: Weird Posts

A couple minutes after freaking out himself, "hittes petr sykora" says something, well...

Excuse me?

Nooooooooooooooooo


And two minutes before that...

12:38, and TSN cuts back to Burke.

Burke again. 

I'm seriously getting teary-eyed.

Chapter 5: So... Those Guys on TV Say We Won.

12:38 now, and all the details have been finalized, and people are just now coming to terms with what's happening. Mr. My Head Hurts' username justifies how he's feeling today.

Hard not to be disappointed right now, I thought Cody was going to be the future of this team. I think we just gave Buffalo their future captain.


I would have traded the sedins before cody hodgson.

WTF


I guess SaskOil didn't get the memo, though.

12:39 PM:

Kassian for Hodgeson anyone hear? wtf is that


... no, I don't think anybody heard.

The sad thing is, I don't even care enough to research the two players we're getting back.

Unbelievable.


It takes another 5 minutes before people start to settle down.


I like this trade


LeBrun says the Canucks are one of the deadline winners.


... but based on the rollercoaster between 12:27 PM and 12:47, you wouldn't know it.



One Torontonian even puts it nicely for us:

Don't worry, your not as bad as Toronto LOL

My brother got me a hodgson jersey for my birthday 2 weeks ago ... :(
Still in complete denial!
Always will love and support Cody Hodgson, great player, great potential great character, and I don't care about those stupid rumours about the trade. And we lost him, what a dissapointment. Love you COHO, forever a canuck in my heart!

One day Luongo will raise Lord Stanley's cup.
And show all those haters that he is the amazing goalie that he is.
No matter what jersey he wears, I will always be cheering for Luongo.

Forever Believe.

I think the trade sucks.

Strange that CDC was locked down for hours after this trade,wasn't it?

They should have used that type of energy at Canucks central in controlling their fans after a Stanley Cup loss.

Haha great work. What a roller coaster of emotions. Especially since the deal came out little by little and also completely out of left field. I'm still trying to completely let it sink in.

I don't see how losing Hodgson is a benefit? He has came up huge for us with some great goals. He is coming into his game and we cut him loose. I'm very upset to see such a talent leave the Canucks. When he was interviewed, you could see he wasn't happy with this decision either. You could see he believes in this team. Especially since Gillis was the man who drafted him. But what do I know? I'm just a fan. Good luck Cody.

I still can't get over it until now. :sadno: When I heard his name mentioned on TradeCentre I was really shocked. Not saying that it's a bad trade or anything but he's one of my very favorite players.... So it's very tough to see him leave the Canucks. I think he didn't expect this to happen too, seeing from the interview. All the best for him in Sabres though....

Dude if anyone actually thought we would be able to get Myers for Hodgons you need to give your heads a shake. For that trade to have worked we would have also had to give up someone like KB3 or one of our other top 4 D men

Let me start off by saying I wouldn't have made this trade. However, I think we have to give Gillis credit for having the guts to make this deal.

In Kassian, the Canucks are getting a player who could potentially turn into a Todd Bertuzzi kind of player. This is the glaring need that virtually everyone on this board was more than willing to trade Mason Raymond for.

Unfortunately, we all know that to get something, you have to give up something and Raymond simply wasn't going to get it done.

This trade has the potential to work out for both teams, or blow up in Gillis' face, but no-one can accuse MG of "standing pat".

Make no mistake, standing pat would have been the easy thing to do. If Gillis had stopped at adding Pahlssson, some people would have complained that "he didn't do enough":, however, it would be pretty easy to argue that a team currently sitting in first overall, with three scoring lines and an excellent "energy" line is good enough to get it done.

But MG saw a flaw and took a huge risk in order to correct that flaw. Make no mistake, the Canucks gave up some offense right now, and the heir apparent to Trevor Linden in the future.

If this works out, Gillis will be rightfully lauded for making such a gutsy move. If it fails, he could be criticized for quite some time.

I'm going to hope that he knows what he's doing.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I give credit to Gillis for making such a gutsy move, however I'm still a little confused about giving up a great young player who was performing great with 3rd and 4th line minutes for someone who couldn't even crack the lineup on a crappy team... He could end up looking like a genius... or just started the process of his resignation and taking his spot in the history of Canucks GMs who give away our up and coming talent.
