  1. Really starting to see the overwhelming support on social media for the pipeline among FNs. Hope that's not too much, just wanted to show that these people are overwhelmingly in support of the project.
  2. Not sure if this has been posted but the 85% support number comes straight from a Wetsuweten Hereditary Chief.
  3. You are mistaken, there was a report out that said he couldn't play which you likely read but it was absolutely wrong, Tree can play in this years playoffs, even if he signs after the trade deadline, it is just a matter of him being released once they either miss the playoffs or are eliminated. It isn't for certain but absolutely can happen and has been previously covered in this thread. Copied this over. Sorry it's a leafs article but it applies as he is on our Reserve List. I expect you guys already know this but Tryamkin can be signed after the trade deadline and still play in this years playoffs, here's the article which also states that this does apply to RFA's. https://www.pensionplanpuppets.com/and-now-you-know/2019/1/9/18174522/so-you-heard-a-rumour-about-the-toronto-maple-leafs-signing-a-european-ufa "However, if you read that rule it says it doesn’t apply to players on the reserve list or players on loan to the European club. That means players the Leafs already have the rights to, who have been loaned to Europe, are eligible to join the team. They can even join their NHL team after the trade deadline and still play in the playoffs."
  4. It's quite likely that he'll be released as soon as the team is done, we just have to wait and see.
  5. Sources were provided by Lazurus, I just quoted them.
  6. Appreciate you posting this, I'm sure JB will be in like a dirty shirt once his season ends and he's released. I do realize that it isn't done until it's done, but we can be hopeful.
  7. 19 days until the end of the regular season? And then if they make the playoffs we'll all by cheering them to lose as quickly as possible.
  8. If PK is available, then might be a Tanev trade to whomever, then send those assets to NJ, with a little tweaking, to get PK with salary retained by NJ. Tanev wouldn't have to go to NJ. JB has tried to acquire him twice, I still think he'd be a good fit here, take some pressure off QH, very unlikely JB can swing it but who knows. This is why I say the offers for Tanev would have to be real good because it would have to be good enough to make a deal like this possible, otherwise Tanev stays.
  9. Pretty much guarantee that JB isn't going to trade Tanev unless he thinks it will make the team better, then the question is what would that look like, the answer being, that is JB's job. Regardless of that we know JB has his sights set on Tryamkin because he has said just that.
  10. I would think that Tanev would be the one to go, don't know why people would want to trade Jake just as he's finding his game.
  11. You could add the possibility of signing Tryamkin, even though it would happen after the deadline. And they should also talk to Tanev's agent, find out what the price will be, if it's too high at least be seriously looking at the offers that come in, with the understanding that it would have to improve the team right now.
  12. Agree with Jimmy, as long as he's released when his season ends, they either miss the playoffs or are eliminated, he can sign and play. Copied this over from another thread: I expect you guys already know this but Tryamkin can be signed after the trade deadline and still play in this years playoffs, here's the article which also states that this does apply to RFA's. https://www.pensionplanpuppets.com/and-now-you-know/2019/1/9/18174522/so-you-heard-a-rumour-about-the-toronto-maple-leafs-signing-a-european-ufa "However, if you read that rule it says it doesn’t apply to players on the reserve list or players on loan to the European club.

  13. Tryamkin can play this year and in the playoffs, even if he signs after the trade deadline, he simply has to be released after they either miss the playoffs or are eliminated. After that he can sign and catch a plane for Vancouver. I really think it will come down to the offers that JB gets for Tanev, they will have to be really good for him to make the move, but stranger things have happened at the deadline.
