Nucks fans seem to post more about Hodgson than Sabres fans.
That's because a lot of Canuck fans became emotionally invested in Cody and have felt slightly spurned by his agent and father kind of forcing the Canucks into trading him out.
From most reports Cody was well liked by his peers, but that's not how most fans feel. That's why when his name comes up we are first to explore the conversation.
I think the Sabres will try to get him on a bridge type deal, say something like 2 years 5.5 total. 2.75 cap hit. It's a minor cap number raise but most likely a huge pay increase for him. It also keeps him RFA and allows him to cash in later if he continues to become a solid 2nd line centre scoring 50-75 points a year.
