  1. Well, I'm a little outside Wuhan but my daughter went to visit her grandparents in Wuhan. I made the mistake of letting her visit her grandparents for too long before this ban on traveling inside of Wuhan. I have tried every means possible to try to get her back to me but to no avail. So me and my wife are on one far side of the city and my daughter is on the other side and we are not allowed to get her. The only thing I can do it is watch the news pray the virus does not hit my daughter's area and wait. I'm not really worried about the virus, if it means I can get to my kid I'll take that vir

  2. In Frankfurt for a few days visiting some old friends/haunts and have seen three different people in unrelated situations wearing Canuck stuff. NEVER did see that in my past life. The few sporting goods stores I have been in that have hockey gear as many Petterssen jersey's as Crosy or McDavid. Nice!!!

  4. on the surface, yes. Beyond that, it's tanev who allows QH to play that way.

  5. Have to agree with this. Tanev is not taking us into the playoffs. The entire team is. Tanev is not going to win us a cup. But it is possible the entire team will.. but probably not this season any way. We need to get a look at players like OJ, Rafferty, Bresbois, and Sautner again.. and with the probable return of Tryamkin for the playoffs.. this team will still make the playoffs without Tanev. We need to get something back for a player we are not going to resign.. and we won’t resign him because the aforementioned players will be pushed hard to make the Team ne

  6. Trade Tanev 1. We shouldn't resign a 30 year old, injury prone defensive defensemen for 5 million. Not to mention this is Tanev's last deal to cash in on and would want a 3-4 year term. 2. He puts up little offensive numbers (better this year but look who he plays with, Hughes is creating everything. Not to mention all he does is cough up the puck after he hits the red line and just dumps the puck in because he can't make a play. 3. We aren't winning the cup and if you think we are missing the playoffs because we trade him you're not watching our team. Pet

  8. Just replying the topics in the thread. The connection I see is that Tryamkin is the expectation to fill Tanev's role, so I guess the discussion to the importance of Tanev has some relevance.

  9. You guys saw how bad we were without Edler? You guys think we can make the playoffs without Tanev? We now are having success while he's healthy and you want to trade him away? Pacific is tight. We're not a dominant team. Tryamkin would not be able to replace what Tanev brings right away. Doesn't even have a seasons worth of games of experience and has been away for 3 years. Benn is not a top 4 D and not even in our top 6 right now, Rafferty needs to work on his defensive side of the game. How many teams that are trying to make the playoffs downgrade? You do know other

  10. I'd take Tryamkin for my playoff team as well. But I'd also keep Tanev for the playoff run because that combination is depth and gives us the best team moving forward. If Tryamkin proves his worth, letting Tanev walk is an easier pill to swallow. I've been one those suggesting that Tryamkin could replace Tanev next year because of his role in the KHL and how it could translate here. I just don't think someone coming potentially just before the playoffs starts and moving someone out at the trade deadline is a good way to roll into the playoffs. I think we want the best team possible

  11. I’ll take the alternate version of Hughes keeping Tanev healthy and looking good. Compared to any other season with us, this will be the most games he’s played in a single season. So what has changed that? Hughes has.

  12. On the other hand Rob, Hughes might be keeping Tanev healthy and well enough to trade.

  13. I think we pretty much know what we have already, an improved version of the guy we had 3 years ago. It certainly seems like he's improved physically. I don't put a ton of stock in KHL experience but we know he was able to play here already. It would be pretty exciting to see him with Edler imo, that would be a lot for teams to handle.

  17. Tanev is our number one defensive Dman. Taking any team's top defensive Dman out of the picture significantly weakens their playoff aspirations. Only a tanker would think that makes sense. And no amount of rhetoric is going to change that.

  18. I haven't seen too much of Rathbone so take this with a grain of salt but from what I've seen his overall skating isn't elite but his straight ahead speed is what shines.

  19. I don’t know. Speed looked pretty elite on an end to end rush just now. Just about tucked it in on the wraparound.

  20. I think as fans we look to compare players in the way they play. In this case, Tanev is not Tryamkin.. and Tryamkin is not Tanev. Each can be as effective as a D man but in different styles.. To add: I’ve never seen Tanev clear an opponent from the front of the net or control and frustrate a large power forward, Or hit an opponent so hard it shuts down a play by totally wiping out a player. Tryamkin by most accounts @Hairy Kneeland @Stierlitz has probably the most minutes on his team in a pk role. again Tanev is not Tryamkin.. Benning has openly

  21. Not well enough. "If they show signs" isn't good enough....what's the point of quarantining them in Ontario if they let them off the plane in Vancouver first?? Makes no sense at all. Some may not show signs but it doesn't mean they won't at some point and a better safe than sorry approach seems the only responsible thing to do. Mind boggling to consider anything BUT quarantining everyone on board as part of the process if they're destined for...quarantine?

  23. Tanev historically has crosshairs set on his back if another team wishes to upset the delicate balance of our D line up... In playoff hockey, I highly doubt CT sees more than 5 games in a 7 game series. We won’t be signing him next year.. and the season after that Edler will probably be gone.. perhaps I’m thinking further ahead than most.. but if we can benefit from trading Tanev while he is healthy, getting a good pick now is better than the eventual total loss that is pending. CT is not going to make a difference to us in the playoffs.

  24. Support players are just as important as the "drivers". With that said, Tanev is one of the "drivers" of the defense. Who takes over the top PK duties? My hopes is that Tryamkin would, but we will need to see if he is a feasible option before unloading Tanev and Tryamkin may not even be here until late March or April at the earliest if at all this season.

  25. The problem is some here think that he's simply going to be picking up from where he last left off here. As if there is no growth in the 3 years he's been away (assuming the same crowd that think development is poor in the KHL eg Podkolzin). I think the biggest improvement is his maturity. I think he has figured out what he needs to do to be effective and successful. If he brings that mindset here, then we certainly have a player.

  26. https://www.flashscore.ca/hockey/russia/khl/standings/ Looks like a much better record at home. Can't simply be attributed to Tryamkin though. Although Tryamkin's team overall seemed to have taken a dip while Tryamkin seemed to improve his game this year fwiw.

  28. Oh sweet Gordie it continues! If we 'easily' could have got a 2nd for Hamhuis or a 3rd for Miller, we would have. We couldn't, so we didn't. Seriously, show us some examples of 35+ year old goalies getting 3rd at TDL's...we'll wait.

  33. That’s what JB has said about our window for winning to stay open for a long period. Support players (which Gaudette is) will be replaced by guys coming up on their ELC’s, when they age out or become too expensive. We have Petey, Hughes, Bo, and Bess as our core pieces. The rest will be replaced as this team goes through the next decade.

  35. Personally I think they should trade his rights and be done with him. Send him to the east coast far away from the smoke in Vancouver. Wasn't happy the first time here, now he's not happy in Russia!? I believe he is not that good, hasn't stood out in the KHL and been pushed down the depth chart? Suspicions of attitude problems have been speculated. I would be more concerned with the effect on team chemistry more than anything, he has not EARNED his spot like the others. Now if he came to Camp in September and had a good camp, makes the team on his play and p

  36. I've been watching his games and seeing him ploughing and rag dolling a 6' 200 lb forward is worth the wait. Only Edler and Myers come close to that ability. The funny part is it hardly looks like he's trying.

  37. With how well Hughes and Tanev play together, keeping Tanev should be priority number 1. Stecher, Benn and Fanta are expendable IMO.

  38. Gonna be real, Gaudette is atrocious at faceoffs. That line needs Sutter/Beagle. Just like how Petey has Miller to take all his draws for him cause Petey is bit of a liability in the dot too. At least he is 44% but whatever. Gaudette was 3/10 against Carolina. If he plays better at center, he needs a true center to take the draws for him. Or move him to the wing. Either way the guy takes too many faceoffs considering how inept he is at them. 300+ faceoffs for Gaudette (39% in the dot) and Petey has like 120+ faceoffs taken. Gaudette's corsi is so low cause they lose the faceoff every time he's

  39. Haven't seen Rathbone play before. He's pretty slick with the puck. Good hands & a crisp passer. Good IQ. Speed seems to be closer to average than 'elite'. Looked good on the PP.

  41. I think everyone knows that Rob But Hughes play is the driver of the 2 by far Would also say that Markstrom 's play has a lot to do with the same Virtanen's ascension has also helped as has Millers, as is to a lesser degree Pearsons Point being a lot of factors I am not trying to scream the sky is falling when we are playing so well but, there is a lot of moving parts just in our cap situation I personally look forward to see it all unfold...….

  42. Who said Tanev was a make or break player? I've personally only said that he gives us the best chance moving forward. Teams don't downgrade going into the playoffs. The team and players are not thinking this isn't their year. Every year counts, that's why they play the games. Did anyone predict Tampa would get swept in the 1st round last year? See Edmonton, Toronto, Buffalo, etc for long-ass rebuilds. We have actually turned it around in remarkably short order that the pro-tank crew hasn't been able to process it fast enough.

  43. IMO, Booth is a good comparable for their skill sets (minus the 'weird dude-ness'). Not ever likely to be a true, top 6 PWF but can make a go of it as a complimentary middle 6 guy, IF he can translate his tools to the NHL level. We'll see....

  44. The playoffs are a long and brutal battle to get through more than one round. Whistles get put away. Intensity and hitting ramp up. Tryamkin could take those big mismatches. Like how Svetchnikov pushed past Huggy the other day. That ain't happening with Tryamkin. Or those bloody long stupid cycles in our zone. Tryamkin snuffs those out. Why can't we have both for the playoffs Tanev and Tryamkin? ps I think the book is out on Tanev. No one wants to risk a big contract on a injury prone player. I don't really see a first for him.

  45. Benn is currently not in the top 6 because he hasn't shown enough. Tryamkin might not join us until late March or April if he even gets released from his contract to play this season and he would coming to a "new" team. Rafferty hasn't proven anything at the NHL level and his biggest knock has been that he needs to improve defensively as per Johnson. Chatfield is a decent call up option at best right now. So while they may not be enough of a downgrade for us to possibly miss the playoffs, it could lead to us backing into the playoffs rather than going in with full control. Also how many teams

  46. Agree to disagree. I see a 1st as more likely to get us a cup then Tanev this year. But, thats the great thing about hockey and the future. Anything can happen Edit: Ill add that I think this team can do just as well (or very close to) without Tanev as it is now

  47. I don't think Motte should be dealt. Dudes a 4th line staple that's is only turning 25 this year like Bo. Schaller will probably be gone and I see us trying to move Baer and maybe Sutter(if we are completely healthy). Might not be able to move Baer/Sutter till next year though. I only see Benn going if we have confirmation that Tryamkin is coming back, otherwise keep him in case of injury. Want I want to see is us send some of our bad contracts to ANA who said they'd take them for some assets(picks/prospects) and try to pry a player out of there. I am completely fine wi

  48. Exactly. We are currently second in the Western Conference... and people are suggesting to trade our best defensive dman, with no immediate replacement, for a draft pick? I guess it takes awhile to shake off the rebuild mindset.

  49. Actually, if you just look at the 'big picture' there are some similarities - not in skill-set mind you but: -both similar age -both similar size -both OHL products that produced at similar levels in that league -both given up on by their draft team -both produced similar numbers in limited NHL appearances -both almost half-way through the 'average' pro-hockey career and still not established in the NHL yet Actually, if you look closely at just their stats from OHL/AHL/NHL, they are eerily similar. Yes, I know stats are just stats and not the whole
