i hope so - you're suppose to encourage and boost your players confidence and not bring it down - especially since he's a rookie.. one that can barely speak our language.

 

but wait megna is great defensively and offensively! .. play the rookies? 60 mins for megna.

Personally I think Tryamkin (22 yrs. old)) has developed at quite a remarkable rate over this past year if you look at the whole picture. Yet he still looks like he's got so much more to come out of that frame. Let's hope so.

Horvat(21) is also developing at quite a remarkable rate as well.

Granlund(23) & Baertschi(24) again have both shown great progress.

Hutton(23) struggled earlier in the year but has been looking better in the 2nd half of his sophomore season.

Stecher(22) for a rookie did quite well to say the least.

Boeser just turned 20, is looking very promising as well. 2 goals in 3 games might be a sign of the young goal scorer this teams been waiting for.

 

Something tells me Willie Desjardins might remain our coach for the start of next season?

Makes me wonder how big of a part Willie had in these players and their development. 

At the very least he ALLOWED them to develop. Can you imagine how well the kids would have developed with someone like Torts screaming at them and giving them no ice time at all?

Man, Tryamkin is blossoming into quite the D. Last year at the end of the season he looked good too. I think that pattern if it keeps up is perfect for a playoff run. He's learning who to target on each team. He knows who the 'bad guys' are now.

Man the hit on Brown was great.

I love the big guy, and also believe he has the highest ceiling of our current young D.  I do wonder about his summer though.  Maybe the Russian KHL guys are like it used to be over here; they play themselves into shape during the first month of the season?

I think his fitness will be fine, just ask Brown.

Willie's praise of Tram last night brought a thought to my mind. Did Nikita step up the way he did because of Willie's comments earlier? Could Willie's comments have brought out a better Tryamkin? It's hard to say, but it's a possibility I think many have ignored.

They could have, but a coach calling a player out in the press should be a last resort, especially a 22 year old. Good for the cRussian for responding though.

I'll bet that positivity with Nik will prove to be a better psychological ploy than negativity.

 

His body language on the bench is so strong sometimes, like after making a mistake he looks like he's a mix of anger, guilt, and shame that's more or less receptive to learning. I like the little pep talks he gets from coaches once and awhile. In my head they're just reminding him not to worry about it, that kind of thing is going to happen again just let it go and focus on the game.

An interesting fact about Tryamkin pointed out in a Virtanen article: 

 

"Last September, Virtanen saw how seriously Nikita Tryamkin took his level of fitness concern by dropping four-and-a-half per cent body fat in one month."

 

I hope he continues his motivation for training over the summer and into the next season. If he can play at his peak fitness level and play a high intensity game for 60 minutes, he is going to dominate.

Let's see here. September, guy comes to camp not in the best of shape, works to rectify it, doesn't play for what, the month of October while he gets himself together? I still remember some fans blasting WD for not playing him when he was clearly looking a little sluggish on the ice. A strong summer and next camp will hopefully have he and Gudbranson both raring to go.

Canadian players returning after KHL stints talk about it being a 'no contact' league. Big ice, lots of room behind the nets, no heavy checking and no board battles. Fans talk about prospects playing in the KHL to develop their games (Zuk) but I would be concerned that the development would be limited. The CHL and AHL are still be the best opportunity.

 

After watching Tryamkin this year I am thinking he has the highest ceiling of all Canuck players not just the d-core.

I agree.  I don't think there is the same pace of play, like you say.  Guys can get away with being less fit.

How'd we only have LaFayette for 38 games?  He was a champ bottom-6 in our '94 cup run.

Looks like he was a career AHL/NHL tweener that played above his head for 1 spring.  Heh, picked a good time to play above the norm.

Hit the post in Game 7, leading us to lose the game and riot in the streets. Banned for life. haha

 

Tryamkin better not do that or he will be banned back to Russia.

If I get to watch Tryamkin in a Cup Final game #7 anytime over the next decade I will not be complaining...
