  1. A prairie dog pushing up alph alpha sprouts..
  2. The Bruins just signed a big un out of College, .. I’d think he’ll be pulled under Zed’s wing soon.
  3. He makes it look so easy Hairy,. and I think because of that and how he works his strengths to his advantage, his defensive work goes unnoticed at times.. ive said before that if you compare Tanev and Tryamkin working a defensive entry, Tryamkin corrals the player to a side and quickly ends the play by taking the puck carrier before there is any set-up time,. he gets the puck for himself or his partner gets it. Tanev on the other hand will Zone a puck carrier to a side and track him back and forth until the puck carrier has passed off or been allowed to start an offensive cycle.. with Tanev, it always looks impressive darting up and down on a check, but it allows the Offensive set up.. reminds me so much of how Bob Lenarduzzi used to play soccer,. Hair flaying around and fast feet , but accomplishing nothing but the next dance routine for Micheal Jackson.
  4. The KHL started to use the deep data stats the NHL was going to use in the playoffs this season. In Niks last game he was tracked as skating 5.2 kms. Where his teammate Pavel Datsyuk was tracked at 3.9 kms. That kind of stuff interests me.. the basics.. but most analytics I find are overrated. For other sports like Baseball or Football, I think they’re fine, they work in a more individual type sport . But hockey, and the puck luck factor !?.. like they say, anything can happen, it’s hockey.
  5. Absolutely Fred. I can remember being 21 years old myself, I’m sure all of us made decisions we question ourselves.. He is 25.. and I still don’t think “primed” ,. One more full with us will have him on track,. I think at 28 this young man is going to own the blue line. There is a fear factor playing against Tryamkin that has forwards letting up on his side.. there are no analytics for that.
  6. Heard Dahliwahli trying to back track on the Utica bs yesterday.. throwing this outcry back at the fans.. these journalists start the fires and blame everyone else.., that’s what “inflammatory remarks” do.. Nik was a 21 year old who had a remarkable rookie season.. he left after his contract expired . He is available to us again.. and for our present D core he is probably the biggest, fastest, with a 102 mph heavy shot. Desjardins should have been gone at the beginning of his last season.. I’m confident in my belief that Linden was let go for trying to protect Desjardins to his full term.
  7. I went back 10 pages and couldn’t find anything on this situation.. Hmmm .. what IF .. Healthy and signed with us for Tanev money. Edler Myers Hughes Byfuglien Rafferty Tryamkin. Fantenburg.
  8. Hmmm .. what IF... someone gets healthy and needs a new home for a couple years? Hughes Byfuglien Edler Myers Rafferty Tryamkin Fantenurg.
  9. Kane.. both of them,.. and then Chara to claim the Throne.
  10. He has been playing with Nigel Dawes (captain for Avto) for 3 years,. I think some good humour will have rubbed off as well as a fair bit of English lingo . .. and Pavel Datsyuk this season, I’m sure wanting to see Nik become all that he can be as an NHL player.
  11. Geezuz, Poor Nik taking a beating on Twitter by uninformed, misled fans that have been fed crap about Tryamkin by the Stooge media in this town 3 years ago. The Canucks will never get a positive fan base in this city unless the terrible journalism is rightfully harassed out of town.. 90% of them are Fakes.. do no investigation of their own, don’t even watch Utica games.. let alone anything KHL or Euro. Thats why they always fall back on the cliche’ “it’s just my opinion”... meaning they have done no search for information, or witnessed anything to support it. All full of B.S. and each other’s negative hype is what they feed fans. .. and they would rather talk negative than positive because it enflames fans.. that is their only motive. The simple minds of journalists lighting fires for notoriety. These guys are a sport franchise owners nightmare. Vancouver is a city that in the last 50 years has had better teams than the Leafs in the past 56. 1967 was the last time the Leafs won ANYTHING. The Canucks joined the league in 1970 as an expansion team along with the Buffalo Sabres. In its NHL history, the team has advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals three times, losing to the New York Islanders in 1982, the New York Rangers in 1994 and the Boston Bruins in 2011. They have won the Presidents' Trophy in back-to-back seasons as the team with the league's best regular season record in the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons. They won three division titles as a member of the Smythe Division from 1974 to 1993, and seven titles as a member of the Northwest Division from 1998 to 2013. Not too hard to get behind that, and how our rebuild surfaces over the next 3 years.. pretty sure the Cup will be in Vancouver before any other Canadian city next.
