It's a business and I think Stecher is going to be squeezed out of a job. He will land on his feet somewhere.

You say Trannah, I say Trono.

Yip. Whichever. I just want that big, ill fitting helmet Russian, back in this lineup.

 I love Stecher, and remember him (as a boy) phoning in to our local radio shows as “Troy from Richmond”.

Is this true? :o

 

So cool if so...

I get the intrigue but is Tryankin better defensively than Stetcher? Because he isn't better offensively and he isn't going to come much cheaper. IMO if we cut Stetcher, it will either be to plug Rafferty in or another lower salary or if it were a clear upgrade and I'm not sure Tryamkin is an upgrade. Sure, he's bigger but that doesn't necessarily mean better. Troy is also a favorite in the dressing room and amungst the fans.

Nothing against Stretcher but he just gets beat physically too often. On a bigger team Stecher will be fine. Our team still lacks size in my opinion so a swapout of Stetch for Tryamkin would be a big upgrade. I think Tramkin is the better dman as well. I don't like putting down Stecher as he is a very capable NHL dman. A team should always consider all upgrades at all positions if possible.

Tree is way better than Stecher.  He’s bigger, and actually skates better.  He’s got better puck skills too.  IMO Stecher is a big liability in our own zone.  He physically just can’t contain anyone.  Pucks bounce in off him because he gets pushed in to bad position.  He’s just way too easy to play against.

Stecher gets no love. He actually leads the team defenseman in goals against per 60 minutes at even strength with just 2.2 goals allowed per 60.
