Could the Buffalo Sabres being listening to offers for Cody Hodgson?
According to sources close to the situation, the Sabres and Hodgson are still far apart on a new contract for the pending Restricted Free Agent, and Buffalo will listen to offers for the young center.
The team is not shopping him, but wants to keep options open in case a deal can’t get worked out. Still, I wouldn’t read too much into it as both sides, according to the source, want to get a deal done. The only true thing standing in the way is the amount of money being paid.
Does Buffalo view him as a true number one center? That is the biggest question in all of this.
- From what I have been told, there is no truth to the recent rumor that Buffalo and Anaheim are in talks about a Bobby Ryan trade. They talked about a week ago, but nothing more has come of it.
- All is quiet on the Ryan Miller and Thomas Vanek fronts. Talks are expected to pick up greatly in the next 12-24 hours before the draft starts as Buffalo continues to look for ways to move up into the top 4.
