I would think he'd be hard to go wide against...his skating, wingspan and his experience of wide rinks would only help him...now he's closer to the boards with less to protect....it's going to be interesting watching McDavid try going wide on him....It might end with a splat to the glass.

And then slapping Lucic around like a red-headed step child, when Milan comes to defend his buddy.

Tryankin looks too have incredible strength...Giant man strength...some guys with body builder looks ,aren't very strong and you would think they would be....Tryankin is I guess just Naturally strong...Lumber Jake strong.

Can't wait til hockey starts.   Battle of Lucic  (Gudbranson ,Tryankin) 

 

i think Lucic will start keeping his big beak shut when he's on the ice....til Lucic is buyout next summer.

I think it's great that we're high on Tryamkin. I agree he'll be interesting to watch, yet we need to keep our expectations and reality in check when talking Tryampkin. 

Our defence may take a bit to get used to each other but people will be crowing about the great job JB gas done when the defense becomes a nightmare to play against . 

I not only look forward to Vancouver pounding Lucic but most teams on the west.

He'll be watching for more than Tryamkin over his shoulder.

I got off topic a bit but in thinking Lucic is gonna have a rough ride over the length  of his contract.

Yes I think Tryamkin and Gudbranson will be our twin towers back there...plus if somehow Pedan can make the 7th spot we'd be a snarly bunch in our own end for sure. (with Sbisa as an afterthought lol)

Not unusual but IMO Tanev enters the season with the least amount of questions about what he brings. Edler is whether he can regain a +40 season; Hutton: can he continue his development and be a true ozone performer; Sbisa: can he progress and anchor his #5 spot; Tryamkin, Larson and Pedan: who breaks out and claims #6; Gudbranson: not having seen much of his play I am wondering how complete a game he brings. Florida let him go for McCann which is a red flag in my mind. #3 overall. Is he simply a physical presence or does he have that first pass that fans talk about.

 

My guesstitmate:

Edler - Tanev

Hutton - Gudbranson

Tryamkin - Sbisa

Larsen - Pedan*    Pedan ends up in Utica

Fans will do what fans do. No sense in trying to corral people's ideas on the subject.

 

Nikita looks to be an impressive defenseman who's more than just a massive player. Based on how hard things have come for this team in the last couple of seasons, being excited about players is a good thing.

Based on how poorly the defense performed last year, any improvement is welcome. And Benning has most definitely improved it. He's added some exceptional size and strength to the corps, that will make a difference, while keeping a keen eye on developing and protecting younger multi-faceted players.

Same. The change in how the Ducks approached the Canucks in the last meeting of last season was clearly noticeable. Same with the Kings and Sharks. Adding an established beast like Gudbranson will only serve to further this new and improved reputation.

Totally. Lucic isn't the same threat to teams he used to be. He's still a fearsome player, but his impact is lessened against the Canucks due to the large beasts interspersed in the improved blue line. I think Lucic made his decision based on his man crush on McDavid, although seeing as how both players have far differing foot speed, it will be hard to see how parallel Lucic's impact will be on McDavid's "safety".

Yes Pedan will come up on injuries (even a hang nail sit down whoevers needs a rest/injury etc) Larsen I'm hoping gets a few pp's to show his skill.

I heard rumors of Van carrying 8 d-men which could be interesting considering how many forwards are looking for spots. Pedan has to clear waivers so sending him down could be a gamble. Same with Larsen. If Tryamkin resumes his play from last spring he isn't going anywhere.

(And Sbisa used to be a forward before he switched to defense)..I like hiding a D man on the 4th. Defenseman are going to be the backbone of the team this year..a full platoon capable of mixing and matching to each opponent. This will be good for coaching match ups for sure.

Actually? Can we put him up front instead of Grenier next time?

Are you suggesting another Terry Harper? :) Bowman used to play Harper like a fiddle.

Tryamkin certainly has a lot to work with, and I don't refer to his size. He has hockey skills and IQ that can be developed. I'm not certain you can say the same about Pedan ...although Pedan does have other attributes. Biega as much as I like him has maybe a better chance to clear the waiver wire. Larson I haven't ever seen him but if he's a special team player and Vcr needs more success on the PP then he's likely to be the man. Sbisa IMO is the odd man out. WE have physicality with Gudbranson and Tryamkin so do we need Sbisa occasional physical attributes ? the problem is how long will he be JB's blue eye boy

Not familiar with Harper but Bowman was as smart as they come for sure.

I guess I am dating myself. Terry Harper was a guy who could play both forward and defense. Bowman used to rotate him around and would sit him out on occasion. When that happened Harper always came back with a solid game with his nasty side showing. Bowman used to be pretty brutal with his bottom 6 forwards. His d-core was always golden.

I like the idea of creating competition for the bottom 6. I like when players have to earn their ice time. (Oh I can't be waived.I have a NTC etc) Keeping players hungry is a good thing. Bowman reminds me of a tough old coach that wouldn't take half ass$d efforts.
