Mohammed Aulie (great nickname), is a pretty good Defensive D, and I think the Lightning will love him. Pretty good trade on both sides.
only reason i know of him is because he played for Canada at the world Jr

The only major impact ive seen is Nashville now has slightly better depth at the cost of some future potential.


Over all, the league really didn't change much. Rather the least impactful trade deadline day in my recent memory. Then again, not a ton of sellers and not a ton of UFA talent in the pool so it was bound to be a pretty quite deadline.

Wow that's the biggest trade of the day. Both those guys are going to be great players. CoHo is more of a contributor now but Zack Kassian is a beast and will add a lot of tenacity to Vancouver, in the years to come.

Seems like a potential second line player traded for a future 3rd or 4th line center.


Hard to say how it will turn out, but it feels like Vancouver gave up the better player in the deal.

The problem is that with the Sedins / Kesler, Hodgson really didn't have much potential to move up to that 2nd line. So for his growth, the move to Buffalo is probably best for him.

Better player now perhaps. Trust me Kassian is a beast and is one of only a few players from the Sabres (formally now), I would kill to have on my team.

Kassian is a Winger too so he can help out on the 3rd or 2nd line and is much bigger and grittier to match up with Lucic or whoever else in the playoffs.

Hodgson wins too because he wasn't going to get past the 3rd line with Sedin and Kesler there.

I think this is a rare win for both sides. Only that the Sabres get smaller.

I understand the logic and I agree Vancouver needs to get bigger, I just still think when history judges this one, Vancouver will have lost. Young talented centers are a much rarer commodity than larger wingers. Especially centers on route to having 40-50 points in their rookie year with limited ice time.


I had always pretty much pegged Hodgson as a key piece of Vancouvers future.


Trade will be good for Cory though. I could see with increased ice time him turning into a solid player.

Yeah, basically agree. But then, when Nash was the biggest fish, and is status as trade bait was "maybe, but not likely", there really wasn't a lot to get excited about.


Again though, not a lot of sellers, not a lot of pending UFAs and too many teams still in contention, thats why you get stuff like this.

I am shocked at the lack of action in WAS. I sorta expected Knuble to be moved, and certainly expected Hamrlik to have a new home today. I actually envisioned him in Vancouver.


Knuble would have been a solid addition to any real contender team.

I thought I heard some rumors one night about him. For some reason I thought he had a broken hand or something or I maybe thinking of someone else.

Not a big trade day. Was surprised to see Boston acquire all these Dmen, now with Mottau and looks like their just packing on the defense and with Greg Zanon as well.

EDIT: Also noticed a few of the players even the ones I mentioned were all ex-Devils, even Commodore.

Doogie, WTF is our GM doing? Gilbert for Nick Schultz? I hope I am wrong, but I hate it.

Well, nothing will ever top the Gilmour trade; just ask Serapth.


The arguments I have heard have me coming around a bit. Petry's emergence sort of made Gilbert expendable; they play similar games. This should now give the team a solid shot-blocking D-man with a puck mover for each pairing.
Smid-Whitney
Schultz-Petry
Sutton-Potter

At least now I have talked myself into hopefulness.

It's odd seeing Buffalo make trades to build to the future. I'm so used to seeing them make one trade at the deadline, usually for a player that's supposed to help us in the playoffs who inevitably fails to do anything at all for us.

Steve Tambellini can eat my ass.

Jeff Petry is at best where Tom Gilbert was 4-5 years ago. Gilbert is our top defenceman, can defend pretty darned well, and is a good puck-mover, too. Schultz can defend, but he's not a puck-mover. This is a clear down-grade.

And the worst part is, if we'd gotten Schultz for not-Gilbert, I'd be perfectly happy, because that'd solidify our top four, and maybe Petry edges out Barbaro next year. This is one step forward, two steps back.
