#sabres having issues resigning Cody hodgson


I read from the same source he turned down a 4 year 3.25 offer.


The bio for this account advertises that they repost ALL rumours relating to the Sabres, and with just 600 followers you can actually scroll through and note that nobody in the hockey world follows it.

edit: oh and they've also claimed that the Sabres turned down the Philadelphia Flyers offer of Braydon Coburn, Sean Couturier and the 11th overall pick for Ryan Miller :shock: so there's that too.

Pretty safe to say he has as many inside sources as @krufrank.

Richards not being bought out.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie

NYR will not be using their remaining compliance buyout this summer so Brad Richards will remain a Blueshirt.

If Letang is available Gillis should be making a run for him.

He is exactly what the Canucks need on the back end. We can add some size and sandpaper somewhere else but he could help in a lot of ways.

$7M per doesn't worry me too much as the new cap hit wouldn't kick in till next year when the cap is likely to go up. Hell at that point the Sedin's contract are off the books!

We'd have to give up Edler ++ to get him so working him on to the roster this year isn't a big issue either as his cap hit is onl $3.5M. We would definitely need a conditional pick coming back in case he doesn't re-sign with us.

Edler, Luongo, Schroeder, 2nd - 2014

Letang, Vokoun, Conditional 1st - 2014 (becomes a 3-4 rounder if Letang re-signs)

They can keep MAF and get something for him.

Something along those lines anyways.

Agreed. And if the rumours are to be believed, he is.

Wishfull thinking, you can put this in the bank.

Canucks starting core will be identical with no big names added for the start of next season

The only differance will be Luongo gone.

Letang is a pipe dream.

I'm not being negative when I contend that replacing 100% of fossil fuel use worldwide tomorrow with power of unicorn farts is unlikely. I'm simply being realistic. So are Reefer and Mondi.

OK, let's see what the roster looks like to start the season. I contend there will be some major changes.

In fact, I think it's unrealistic to assume there won't be.

If you knew anything about Reef's history you'd know pessimism is a way of life for him... when we were winning Presidents Trophies the rhetoric was pretty much the same.

Yawn and yet I am right.

1) We have good players so MG is probably hoping a coach change is all that is needed, plus rid of the Luongo distraction
2) MG has stated he does not ask player to be traded who have NTC/NMC or what ever
3) MG in all his time here has not made any big trades (sometimes this is hard to do in the current NHL)
4) Maybe a core change is not needed if he signs the right FA (asshole or 2)

Put this and other things all together and it means very little will change on the core. Not negative at all but maybe because I believe differently someone like you just relies on you standard schtick???

It's June 28th and you're right? Awesome stuff Reefster.

LOL.

The rest of your sentence makes very little sense. Maybe tone it down on the 151 before posting next time.

I consider the following to be "big" trades:

2nd/3rd for Steve Bernier
White/Rahimi for Ehrhoff/Lukowich
Grabner/Bernier/1st for Ballard/Oreskovich
Samuelsson/Sturm for Booth
Hodgson/Sulzer for Kassian/Gragnani

What does it take for you to consider it a big trade?

High school diploma or not, I enjoy trying to read your stuff!
