You guys really take this Russian brotherhood thing too far. I doubt selecting a Russian will punch Tryamkin's ticket home.

 

Unless we draft his wife.

Oh....Come on Pepe!!

 

There is only like 144.5 million people in russia.  I am sure Tryamkin knows podkolzin....:picard: and that he would immediately UNBOLT from the Canucks for his dear buddy.  :lol:

Why isn't Tryamkin playing in the World's? Many on here already have him as the #3D on the Canucks.

He didn’t play in the NHL. And he wasn’t a KHL player with a jersey that read SKA or CSKA. This makes it really tough for a player to earn a spot on the Russian team for the IIHF WC.

 

He also had a slightly down year, at least in terms of his individual stats. Much of this can be attributed to more defensive usage and some overall team strategy (especially re: D corps rotation), but still, his stats underwhelmed compared to last year.

Again, says who?    He didn’t prove it before he bolted.   You don’t pay people based on your hopes for them.  

You pay for what they have proven. 

 

He DID prove it.  

 

As painful as that season was to watch, I caught about 65 games and he went from a safe 3rd pairing D to one of our best d-men by the end of the season, who was still being deployed as a 3rd pairing d-man by Willie.

Disagree.  He proved to be a 5,6 on a team with one of the worst D lines in the game.   That is nothing to brag about.  

He had some nice hits from time to time.  

People need to get over the 6’7” bs.  

He isnt Chara.  

A number 5 dman that took off to Russia right away isn’t all of a sudden a 5 mill dman.  

He might have gotten better....maybe. 

KHL isn’t a great development league for the NHL. 

But this talk going on here is ridiculous.  

Make him prove his worth.  Don’t assume it because 3 years ago he hit a couple people like a big man should. 

... and after he played only 60 games in North America he was offered approx 5m over 2 years to stay.

yeah so what eh.

You are so right, Sid, and I hope this would be a good learning lesson for Nikita. By the end of the day, only Russian players from the NHL, SKA and CSKA were selected to play in the current worlds and the NHL players were clearly given free pass to the national team.

Is there a reason for the prejudice against the guys from all the other KHL teams?

Lol,.  Check your mirror.

Benning quoted this to the  Daily Hive...    Im looking for the figure that was reported by another journalist..

but im pretty sure it was over 2m per season.

 

“We are disappointed Nikita chose to sign in the KHL, but also recognize from what he told us in our exit meetings that this was a family decision first,” Benning said. “He has a chance to be an impact player in the NHL and we offered him a two-year extension. But for now he is home and we will move ahead with building this team with other young players.”

 

Tryamkin quoted the same (2yr offer) in this interveiw:

I never disputed them offing a deal, nor did I say anything about 2 years.

Much like your 5x5 offer, this conversation is stupid and I’m done with it.
