Trade deadline day liveblog

Good morning boys and girls. It’s 5:19 AM and I just rolled out of bed and wife’s annoyed. We go through this same routine every trade deadline day. I set my alarm for 5:00 AM, I wake up, and she wonders why the heck I do this. No worries. I know she follows along at work. I hope you will too. But first, coffee. [update: 03/04/2009, 5:23 AM] From Bruce Garrioch via Hosea Cheung: League sources say the Canucks are offering D Kevin Bieksa, LW Mason Raymond and a No. 1 pick for Bouwmeester. That package is about what I...

Sometimes I have to pinch myself

Photo credit: TSN … because I still can’t believe Cody Hodgson is a Canuck. Team Canada won gold at the World Junior Hockey Championships for the fifth year in a row (Ed Willes, Vancouver Province; Don Campbell, Ottawa Citizen; Matthew Sekeres, Globe and Mail; Roy MacGregor, Globe and Mail) and Cody Hodgson was a big part of it.

Cody’s on fire

From the CHL website: So far, so good for Team Canada. John Tavares of the Oshawa Generals and Zach Boychuk of the Lethbridge Hurricanes each scored a pair of goals to help Canada to a 7-0 win over Slovakia in their final pre-tournament warm-up game on Tuesday in Hamilton. Cody Hodgson of the Brampton Battalion picked up three assists for his third straight three-point game. Hodgson was Canada’s top scorer with nine points in exhibition wins over Sweden, Finland and Slovakia. Yup, that’s our Cody Hodgson and he’s getting a lot of rave reviews for his play. It feels good...
