Deadline 2012

Wow, crazy day. 1st off, Goose and a fourth to Nashville for a first; 1-0 BUF. I was hearing all day that Darcy wanted a first rounder for Gaustad, and I thought that was nuts. I thought the best we could get for him was third, maybe a second. But hey, give Darcy credit, he stuck to his guns and just gave up that fourth rounder for the first rounder. This definitely went to Buffalo's advantage. I'll have two first round picks for a 3rd/4th line center any day. Nashville did get a great player though. Goose is great on faceoffs and on the pk. Great physical player who can drop the gloves and score a few goals. If Nashville is looking for depth in their roster to make a playoff push, they made the right move by calling the goose. This deal didn't happen until a little after three so I figured we were done, boy was I wrong. As I'm uploading my Ryan Suter post, I see on Trade Centre: "Zack Kassian traded to Vancouver." My first thought, NOOOOO! I thought Regier considered Kass as an untouchable and that he would be with this franchise for a very long time. It wasn't until I found it who he got traded for was when I got excited. Kassian traded for CENTER Cody Hodgson, 2-0 BUF. And yes, I capitalized center because that's exactly what we need. Even before we got rid of Gaustad, we were in need of a center. We thought we could bring Villie Leino to play center, but that turned out great. As of what I've heard, Cody should be a great assist for us now and in the future and should be great on a line with Vanek and Pomer. We also got rid of Marc-Andre Gragani for Alex Sulzer which I could care less about. Great deadline for Buffalo

Nice success on trade deadline day! Quick return from the NHL All Star Defensemen. Took about a week and a half. My first autograph I have in red sharpie, and it actually looks pretty cool on the yellow jersey. I sent the 4x6 to the Nashville Predators.
Also one final salute to the goose, Paul Gaustad. Ironical he got traded to Nashville today... honk honk!

Jason Pominville

Today my little brother won a contest through Dave and Adam's Card world that Jason Pominville would come to his school and throw a party for his class. He didn't know and when we all walked into his class, he freaked! Each kid, including Sam, got a 8x10 that Pomer signed and Sam also got a jersey he signed that Dave and Adam's are going to frame for him. While we were waiting for the ok to go up to his class, I got him to sign my mini helmet that I'm working to get more sigs on. Oh c'mon, you really think I wasn't going to get his autograph too! Anyway, we totally surprised him and he had a great day.

Also: if you haven't gotten your answers to the contest yet, email them to me ASAP ( Deadline is this Sunday.
