Contest: The Cody Hodgson Era Has Ended… and CHB Needs a New Tagline

Contest: The Cody Hodgson Era Has Ended… and CHB Needs a New Tagline

Wow. It’s still hard to believe that the Canucks have traded away Richard Loat’s favourite player, Cody Hodgson. And like much of the intertwined web of social media, we here at Canucks Hockey Blog have also seen ourselves transition through the five stages of grief over the deal: Shock – What do you mean he was traded? Denial – Liars! Until Bob McKenzie says so, Cody is still a Canuck! Anger – Damn that Bob McKenzie for saying Cody is a Sabre. Depression – Cody was the next Linden. Acceptance – Well, he’s gone. Guess we have to change our...

Two-Line Pass: Can Cody Keep It Up?

Two-Line Pass: Can Cody Keep It Up?

To: Richard Loat From: Christopher Golden Date: Oct 17, 2011 at 8:50 PM Hey Richard, So how about that Hodgson kid? I know he hasn’t always been a favourite of yours, yet I’m sure you’d even have to admit that he’s begun to look a little better than seasons past. Cody’s been averaging a solid 20 shifts per game during this short span, which translates into approximately 14 – 15mins a game – of that just over two minutes a game on the power play. And with Ryan Kesler coming back into the fray against the Rangers, we’re seeing Hodgson...

Two-Line Pass: Uncertainty

[Two-Line Pass is a discussion, or even a debate, between two hockey bloggers on some of the hottest topics in Canucks Nation and the NHL.] To: Caylie King From: Christopher Golden Date: Oct 10, 2011 at 11:58 AM Hey Caylie, So… it’s been a while, no? I mean… the last time we were talking we had high hopes for Stanley’s sweet chalice rolling down Robson. Instead, we were left with canisters of tear gas rolling down Robson. Have you even gotten over that misery yet? Although it didn’t end the way we wanted, it’s important to note that short of...

[About the game from two viewpoints. Chris and Caylie watch the game and exchange their thoughts via email.] From: Christopher Golden To: Caylie King Date: Wed, 15 Jun 2011 17:16 Hey Caylie, Game 7. Vancouver. And biggest game in Luongo’s career. He’s gonna bring it. He has too! C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Wed, 15 Jun 2011 18:06 Hi Chris, Like many have said, this game will be a huge statement for Luongo. He wasn’t faced with very many shots in the first, but the one he didn’t see went to the back of the net. I...

[About the game from two viewpoints. Chris and Caylie watch the game and exchange their thoughts via email.] From: Christopher Golden To: Caylie King Date: Mon, 13 Jun 2011 17:00 Hey Caylie, For what could be a defining moment in my favourite NHL team’s history, I’ve been surprisingly calm throughout the day. Not confident (after games 3 & 4 I’m still apprehensive of the TD Gardens) but at peace. Mind you, the puck has yet to drop. C. From: Caylie King To: Christopher Golden Date: Mon, 13 Jun 2011 17:17 Hi Chris, I was calm until about 3 PM when...
