Tyler Motte | #64 | C/W

Recommended Posts

I really don't mind the trade at all. Would've liked a pick but anyone saying we should've just kept Vanek instead is delusional. Nine goals in 17 games this year for Cleveland isn't a huge sample size but Goldobin has 9 in 28 at the same age... granted, Goldobin has way more assists and is a playmaker first but Motte clearly has a scoring touch which he showcased in college. Only one back of his goal total from last year, coming off a 15.5% shooting percentage and averaging over three shots per game.

Really a no-risk trade, if he can provide a better bottom six option in the NHL than a guy like Dowd its a win in my opinion. Should provide Utica some good depth in their playoff run, although they'll miss Holm for sure.

Or imagine a line of Motte/Leipsic, Gaudette, and Gadjovich. ;)

virt will add some necessary sand paper to his game

The first team in the league to have every player with 100 or more PIMS.

Interesting player to have in the system.

 

I believe there's more to his game than his stats show, maybe not offensively, but there seems to be some potential there for a good third liner with a bit of chippiness to his game. He's not a tall dude, but looking at his weight he is pretty stocky.

He ranked 2nd in the NCAA in blocked shots, which is crazy for a forward. Also ranked 2nd in goals that year, and was a finalist for the Hobey Baker.
I think he provides depth to Utica for a playoff run, and remains waiver exempt for next year.

Hopefully we're smart enough to not play him 16 more games this season

Unless we get an injury I would assume Leipsic is the Vanek replacement on the roster.

 

Motte will get games, when he does I think Dowd will be the player that will sit.

 

So here is hoping our F stay healthy!

Motte...is he a more well round Reid Boucher?

 

In other words, Motte has some skill offensively but is a better skater and more reliable and could be a PK player in the future, so better suited to be a bottom 6 nhl player with versatility VS a 1 dimensional scorer like Boucher
