Nikita Tryamkin | D


Recommended Posts

watched todays game Avto won, Tryamkin had a solid game in a 3-1 victory. My favorite move was how he broke up a play with his sweeping poke check.

Skating backwards the forward thought he had room to move towards the blueline but no he didn't.

I still think Tryamkin would be an addition to the team. Top four player? Possibly. 

 

But i see him more as a depth defenseman who slots into the third pairing. Would Tryamkin accept that role? 

 

If he doesn't, he would have to demonstrate he plays better than the other defensemen to replace them in their roles. If not, and he's upset, then trade him for whatever asset we can get. A third round pick for a former third round pick? Sure, why not. 

 

OR, he can just go back to Russia.

Well, given all the statements from Tram, his agent and JB, you are very likely going to be shocked then. Personally, I think that there is more than a 90% chance that he will be wearing Canucks colours starting sometime in 2020.

JB said he is not in communication with his agent, or hasn't been for some time didn't he?

He's a team first guy and knows coaches will decide his ice time. But he also knows that he can help us get the puck out of our zone with his physical play.with his size and reach,  He can just about  stop any cycle in our zone on the boards or in the slot, He moves laterally quite well so gets to the endboards quickly. Teams tend to veer away from his side of the ice his side of the ice, which helps defense coverage and takes time and space away from opposing forwards.

He will help stop tire fires in our zone for sure, especially against bigger teams. He'd be great for Huggy,

No, not that I saw. Where did you see that? From what I recall, both JB and Tram's agent said they don't expect any real difficulty reaching agreement on a contract.

it was a recent interview, posted here somewhere.  The gyst was they hadn't spoken in sometime............not that I think that means he's not coming back, but that was the latest update I can recall.

I believe that was more a case of that they spoke in the summer/fall, everything appeared on track for a return, and there's little to do/no need to speak until his return is closer to imminent (AKA spring, when his season ends).

I’m Sure Jimbo and Canucks staff will be watching Tryamkins KHL play closely til his contract ends. Big Tryamkin may win coach Green over pre NHL return...which would be a good thing.

I have not been a big fan of the concept and not because of contacts, wives or even former issues of entitlement, I just didn't think he was NHL ready then and didn't think in what I was seeing of him in KHL on games I watched (admittedly not live) that he was regressing.   This season he has changed.   He is playing far more responsibly and taking a real obvious leadership role in all aspects of the game.   He has improved his first step, he breakout passing and is not lazy on the backcheck when he messes up a pinch like he used to be.   He is smarter on the physical stuff too - improving his timing and not taking himself out of the play nearly so often.

 

I will say that he has impressed me and is clearly trying to show he has more to give than he showed the past two years in his return to the homeland.   IF he was able to bottle this year and put in a full summer of work and come to camp in real NHL shape, i really think he would have shot of making the team out of the gate putting any AHL talk as unnecessary.
