Let's not overthink motives, or reasons regarding Nik's departure.

Im pretty sure he will be back,. and bring that mountain size game with him..

If there are any indications that he will be back, note that his instagram and face book accounts both show his profile playing in a Nuck's jersey,. and his season has already started in the KHL.

Hang on for part 2.

I wonder if guys who played in the NHL have a certain status in the Euro leagues?

This break up still makes me sad. What could we have done differently? Maybe we shoulda wooed his lady. :unsure:

Of course I'd definitely prefer having him here but the KHL might not be the worst place.

 

I highly doubt Tryamkin would be playing 22 minutes a game if he started the season with the Canucks. And he might not have had the confidence or "green light" in Vancouver to take the puck end to end for that goal.

 

Of course, this is all predicated on the idea that he eventually comes back, but the KHL might very well end up being a pretty good "finishing school" for Tryamkin.

 

The next couple years could see him become a 20+ minutes/game, top-4 D, with excellent stamina/conditioning, great skating, all situations usage, and a complete two-way game.

 

Just so long as he comes back...

Tryamkin was really starting to assert himself on the ice at the end of last season,his skating and puck handling skills are underrated...Too bad that he has decided to deploy his talents in an inferior league...

well he likely couldn't make that play in the NHL.  Still, very encouraging

I want him back to Side but I do not see the KHL being a finishing school for defencemen. I base that on NHL vets who come back and say the d-zone side was lackadaisical.
