Vancouvers top two centers aren't going anywhere, so I think the deal makes sense...It sucks seeing him go because at this point in time he's the best player in the deal, but getting pahlsson who's an experienced checker, I think the Canucks got better....

I'm hopeful it will work out, but if kassian isn't good enough to play with the sabres, how is he good enough to play on the canucks? I dunno shit about him though. Still bummed from the shitty loss to dallas.

I've been saying for awhile the Canucks need a big crazy winger...I guess the scouting staff really liked those two players...I thought they could have waited until the off season to ditch him.  Pretty sur the Canucks hated Cody's camp from the get go.. It sounds dumb but I think coach V would way rather have Pahlson around than Cody.

The one I wanna see is what Vancouver does in the off season with our goalies...?  I'd be so stoked to see Nonis reenact the Louie deal in TO.

I was in shock when I got the news. Im still very torn about it and I'm sure most fans will feel this way until we start to see some good play from Kassian. I agree jsoy Canucks have needed a big winger for the longest time, Backes was always on the radar, clearly hes not going anywhere.

The most painful thing about the trade is it was hard to not like this kid, everyone was so down on him after he was drafted, AV with those comments about him being "medically cleared" to play, even though he had a herniated disk in his back. He had a rough start here. When he came up, everyone wanted him to do well, and when he started playing well, I was so stoked. It wasnt that he was just a third line Center who happened to chip in some goals. He scored BIG goals. Boston game winner, Chicago tying goal, SJ.

I don't think a team has ever traded a Calder Candidate mid season. Hodgson will be a future captain in Buffalo if Meyers is not.

Im still pretty bummed on the trade but it makes a lot of sense. Kesler and Hank aren't going anywhere and Cody just didn't fit on the wing. Its just a lose lose situation this Kassian has so much pressure on him now with huge shoes to fill.

Just really really hoping Kassian doesnt turn out like Bernier. Highly touted, drafted in the top 20, both 6'3 both 220 lbs. Bernier started out with some scraps and hits but fell off so hard.

kassian has lots of potential, he was lost in a sea of wingers in buffalo, and was called up due ot need and put into a situation he wasnot ready for yet
i think this is a very good trade for both parties
the sabres are a much better team than their record shows, but again, you are only as good as your record shows.

Vancouver got that big winger they needed, Sabres got a desperately needed centre. Vancouver also made a solid move on picking up Sami Pahlsson, guy`s such as fast and good shutdown centre.







Oh and Chris Tanev is my cousin. His parents came over just last week.

You could grab any coach out of the AHL and Im pretty sure theyd do better.....Wison sticking around is the best/worst thing since Gretzky and the Coyotes.....

Dallas Eakins, The Marlies coach is doing great, the Marlies are one of the best teams in the AHL, there is also assistant coach Scott Gordon, and Burke's old buddy from Anaheim, Randy Carlyle. All would be better options then Wilson. They lost tonight due to Wilson's poor ass line matching. Lets put the Brown-Steckel-Armstrong line against the Kane line, good fucking idea.....

Third or fourth cousins, and his parents told me that as well. He's a quiet guy who doesn't really say much, and he's all hell of a player though. I'm getting a bunch of autographed stuff from him soon too.

There's space for him too....Salo will retire....hopefully Ballard will be gone...he's really the best up and coming d man we got...

No way the leafs should bring in Carlyle which is all the reason they will..

Yeah Tanev is fucking awesome. Sort of came out of nowhere last year. Everyone was hyped on Kevin Connaughton and Tanev sort of flew under the radar into our bottom pairing.

Ballards gone in the summer, Schneider too, which I'm very excited but also bummed about, were going to get some amazing stuff back for Cory

Please send Schneider to the Leafs, we need all the help we could get and Gustavsson is a UFA. However, I think Eddie Lack is ready, he's a great prospect and I've heard nothing but great things from him from Tanev's parents.

Outside of Kessel. The leafs dont really have any prospects I'd really want. Schenn and Kadri are so overrated by leaf fans. Colbourne (sp?) seems legit but I doubt Toronto would part with him. It would be a tough sell to pry anyone from Burke, even it it was for Schneider.

Schneider is going to Tampa. Stevie Y has 2 1st and something like 3 2nds stockpiled

You heard it hear first

There's a bunch of rumours goin around that part of the reason hodgson was traded was because him and tanev were so tight and tanev's heavy coke use was spreading to cody and so his agent and family requested a trade to basically save his life.

Went to the game last night.....people seemed pretty stoked on Kassian....him playing w. Lapierre looked good.  First time in awhile where you saw more than one hit in a shift for a line.

The Toronto Maple Leafs' slide out of a playoff position has cost head coach Ron Wilson his job. The club let Wilson go on Friday evening, and have replaced him with former Anaheim Ducks coach Randy Carlyle.



Thank god.

Very stoked on Kassian after tonight, MAG not as much. The one benefit is Gragnani is still decently young and he has more upside than downside. He seems like he'll get caught up ice a lot though because of pinches.

They were 1 goal down with 2 minutes to go, I'd say thats coming close, especially after giving up 3 goals something like 7 minutes in.

I do credit the sabres though, their bums (Leino, Boyes) showed up for one game, usually though, thats not the case.

the canucks are obviously a pretty amazing and well rounded team, i am stoked tha tmy team had a godo game against them on the cbc.

Or if the sabres had a history of scoring goals and the Canucks goalie didn't have a history of letting in 3 goals at a time.....

Bad louie strikes again....good Louie lets one bad goal early on then fights back....bad Louie lets in 3 in the first five minutes.....

I was nervous as fuck before the Jets game tonight. Last game in an eight-game home stand with about five teams in the running for eighth spot in the East. Buffalo's been on a bit of a tear as of late, but the boys pulled out the win! Big third period. Blake Wheeler is playing like a fucking All-Star.

*Edit
I was absolutely pumped to get a ticket to the Jets and Florida game last Thursday. It's the only game I'll see live all season and it was a 7-0 demolition. The crowd here is fucking crazy.

Im really pulling for the Jets to make the playoffs, Im thinking they will, the east is tough, playoff fringe teams are super close

Leafs clinch 9th, Jets and Caps make it. Don't really see the Islanders making the playoffs as sick as Tavares is

Leafs sign Grabovski to a 5 year, $27.5 million contract extension. I'm really happy, Grabovski is a hell of a player that the Leafs need, he takes the pressure off Lupul and Kessel, and the 3rd best player on the team. He loves the city, the team, and we are the place that gave him a chance to play and has been an amazing player for us. He's all heart, energetic, hard-working and smart. He would have made $6 million plus easily on the open market. I'm happy he's going to be back.
