Sabres will probably end up using a rotating captain system. Hodgson is a great pick for captain though, even though he'll be up with the Sabres when/if the season starts. Also, LOL at some of the bitter Canucks fans still persistent with their Hodgson hate.

Cody bashers are just the worst group of fans around this Forum. At least the Lou and Sedin haters have evidence and stats to make a case. Those who rip Cody for ultimately getting traded all blindly follow and speculate on the words of the one guy who's solely responsible for handling the trade. Words only made after the disappointments of the move were made apparent LOL!

People called him "soft" ha, funny I don't remember him passively taking any abuse from guys half his size like others on this team. Soft is not a term I would use to describe someone of below average size who played as a kid vs men and made an impact on an elite team. It was refreshing to see someone with a history of injury compete for rookie of the year while the entire season was defined by players not living up to their expectations after returning from surgeries.

People call him "slow"... On a forum where our fastest player is the whipping boy while players like the Sedins and Edler (who couldn't out skate the zamoboni) are superstars, it's surprising to see that speed is such a selling point. Looking at his breakaway slapshot and game winning goals vs Botson and Detroit, I don't think it was much of a problem.

People called him a "liability", well thank god for our defensive studs in Phalsson, Higgins, Kesler, Manny and Salo. You may remember them as the biggest plugs on the team vs LA.

You can talk all you want about "sheltered minutes" what a joke, pretty sure all of his 16 goals were not against Edmonton. How about the 57 minutes Kassian spent on the bench during the playoffs followed by the full 60 spent in the buffet served press box? What about sheltering Luongo by starting his backup in a redemption match vs Boston? Or the endless offensive zone starts the Sedins get against tired plugs after icing calls? All of this and it's the rookie who gets called out for being babied.

People say he's a "whiner" LOL, FFS LOOK AT OUR TEAM! We have some of the least respected players in the entire league, Gillis' speeches on character and attitude are just a bunch of BS.

This is a team that doesn't respond to midget rats and bullies

This is the team that thinks it's normal to allow 20+ goals in 3 playoff games 3 consecutive years

This is the team that hosts game 7 vs the blackhawks after a 3-0 series lead and then allows a SHORTHANDED GOAL in the dying minutes to force overtime AHHAHAH

This is the team that loses the most lopsided 7 game series in history after failing to score a single goal at home in the winner take all match.

This is the team that pulls the goalie and tries to lead a late game comeback, then shoots the puck over the glass for a penalty.....twice!!!LOL

This is the team with a statue of a guy whining to the refs outside it's stadium

So much for all this character and "heart of a canuck"

Kesler was so terrified of losing his job to this "punk kid" that he returned to play before he was ready just to stink up the joint and further prove how valuable Cody was. The trade was justified by our depth at center thus making Cody expendable..... How does that look now? Our center depth behind Hank includes...

-An injury prone air head who bring questions about being able to return to form and is appropriately being called out as one of the biggest most embarrassing divers in the league.
- A one eyed faceoff specialist
- A fourth line grinder
- An above average AHL player who can't even ride the big boy coaster at playland

such quality depth.....

Cody went out of his way to not put the blame on Gillis for his trade, he kept matters private. In return Gillis, a grown ass man, threw the kid under the bus on national TV to cover up and excuse his own stupidity. Cody quickly moved up the ranks in Buffalo, a team with just as many cups as us and a team that won exactly 1 less playoff game than us last year. Now he is wearing a C on his chest, does this sound like someone with personality issues? Right now this trade couldn't look much worse.

The guy Cody was traded for was benched in the playoffs
His replacement got tooled and then peaced for Sweden
Without Cody and Daniel in the PO our PP sucked and gave up multiple shorthanded goals that cost the first 2 games
We lack quality center depth
Have no real answers as to who is going to replace our stars when they retire

I don't really care about the trade, I prefer Zack and think he has a good shot at being the better player, but to justify this move by bashing Cody and saying we are better now because of it....just stupid.


Holy sh!t!!!, someone with a brain who doesn't believe all the bs Gillis and AV spew. I don't really got much to say cuz you nailed everything. But the worst is the people who bash his leadership, when he's been a captain on every team and still had nothing bad to say when he got traded and when Gillis beaked him.

The blind leading the blind.


Hes been a captain everywhere hes played (aside from the NHL obviously)

No doubt this was a very easy decision to make.

Good for him.
Don't know why they would want a kid who whines about his ice time playing for a Cup contending team as their captain though.


Yeah, really. What idiot wants a player who has the captain experience, is determined and able to play a bigger, more important role as he has successfully done at every level thus far to be their captain. I'm glad we dumped that cry baby.

I don't get this whole thing about how he whined for more ice time? All he did was ask for some more ice time, which finally gave AV a reason to get rid of him since he wasn't a fan of him. (which was more then obvious) and he deserved more ice time. The only reason Hansen had such a good offensive season was because of Hodgson. He was also a lot more clutch then anyone else on our team, besides maybe Burrows.

All I know is, if Kesler comes back and plays as terribly as he did last year, I'm going to be pissed we traded Hodgson, even though I like Kassian.

I Like both players, it's just a shame gillis had to throw him under the bus when he traded him, maybe it was just a good hockey trade, everyone's a winner? Only time will tell I guess

please be gentle with my posts...I am Australian, hockey isnt my first language.

I remember when we drafted Pavel Bure and finally got him on the ice. In fact, I was at the first home game he ever played against the Jets.

It does not even remotely come close to the man-love , hyper crush, blind loyalty that many put on Cody Hodgson's shoulders.

So for the franchises sake, and my own personal sanity, I am glad he was traded. Now the Sabres fans can fight and whine and complain how poor Cody is getting jerked around or not getting his fair chance or whatever.

I like Cody . Dont like his dad much. Nor his agent.

I feel it a shame we couldnt just treat him like a normal player and leave him alone. But I am sure glad hes gone .

WRONG. Tony Gallagher was skewered for his prophetic article in December suggesting that there may be a rift between Cody and the Canucks. "Fear mongering"..."trying to sell newspapers"..."that's Tony Gallagher for ya"...etc.

Cody was adored here until the day that he was traded, and not a soul wanted him to be traded. That is a fact.


In other 'news'...
