    I'd say Svech is in that neighborhood. If not for injuries, he likely would have seriously challenged for 1st OA

    Sauve getting hit by a car was an unfortunate event...........I think he would have been a solid dman

    Let's all remember who won the KHL dman of the year in 2018. That, alone, says enough about KHL defensemen.

    McCann-Guddy trade was excellent Baer trade was very good, as was the granny trade Burr trade was an absolute robbery Hansen trade was good, could be very good

    The CHL is bargaining themselves into irrelevancy, teams are looking elsewhere for talent.

    Gotcha......sounded like you thought he could try and make the Canucks and then decide. Thanks for clearing that up

    There's no decision of AHL or NCAA if he doesn't make the Canucks. Once he signs a contract, it's NHL or AHL

    No, I'm saying that the reason he stated (coach and lack of ice time) is the main reason he left. His body language throughout the season reinforces that. He felt he deserved more ice time and when he got his window to head home, he took it. If that's still his attitude, he can stay in the KHL wasteland. If he wants to change his attitude, work hard and play with and against the best players in the world, the org will welcome him back. If he thinks WD was a hardass, wait until he meets TG.

    So he throws the org under the bus to avoid that convo? I think he said what he thought

    If Canada put all their best players together on one team, they would be pretty unstoppable. The US program is great, no doubt, thougg

    Except he flat out said it was the ice time and coach didn't he?
  12. Nikita Tryamkin | D

    In a cut rate league. On the NHL, he's a 5-6 dman with the potential to be top 4, maybe even top 2........if he changes his attitude and work ethic. I highly doubt you'd find anyone here who wouldn't welcome him back, happily, with some maturity. If not, kudos to him for taking the path of least resistance.

    Why anyone would even contemplate waiving Granny is beyond me. He, literally, does anything that is asked for him and he does it well and doesn't complain. Last season, after a 19 goal campaign, they asked him to play a shutdown role with Sutter and DD and they were the best line on the team until injuries hit. You embrace a player with that kind of versatility, not chide it

    He was not an outstanding player.......he was a kid who could develop into an outstanding player. But, do you know what kind of players develop into outstanding players? Players who listen to coaches, keep their mouths shut and go to work. Kids who pout about ice time, which was quite high for an out of shape rookie, take their puck and go home are doomed to live out their careers in the wasteland that is the KHL. I loved Try, and would welcome him back with open arms, if he changes his attitude and comes back ready to learn and to work.

    They are not waiving Granlund, sorry.
