Nikita Tryamkin | D

Tiny tidbit from Goldobin:

Quote

Goldobin also said he didn’t know what might happen with Nikita Tryamkin. The big defenceman’s agent has said more than once that Tryamkin would like to return to the NHL and Benning has said the Canucks are interested.

 

“He doesn’t know yet,” he said. “He does want to come but he doesn’t know yet. But he said he’ll let me know right away.”

I wouldn’t be surprised if there isn't a signing until after they figure out what's happening with this and potentially next season, as mush as i would love to see it happen as soon as he is able to

This is all too mush for me.  Get him signed already.  Hogz too, Jimbo, while you are at it

Makes sense. Canucks are in a cap squeeze (barring compliance buyouts), particularly as to how they build their defence for next season (Tanev, Stecher, etc). 
 

Although it’s a little discouraging. I’d hoped that Tryamkin would be signed at a price point that wouldn’t really factor much into their budget considerations. This probably signals they’re considering a higher salary (and term) for Tryamkin than I’d want to see him given, at least initially.

Teams are still making smaller signings like this.

 

They could easily get to a point where Tryamkin has a KHL contract offer and we need to decide whether to pul the trigger on signing him.  It is likely something like a 2-3 year contract at $2 million or so... so regardless of the cost situation that is a deal you can do.

Fear mongering to a highly reactive fan-base sure does drum up hits tho........pathetic on his part sadly imo.

The entire NHL is pretty silent and has been for weeks.   Yet rick is worried!!??

 

What a schmuck...

No kidding. Not to mention the fact that if they were indeed in the process of negotiating a contract, there is a very good chance that they wouldn't let out even a peep about it until it was a done deal.

Can’t be too concerned about that article considering there is no hockey ..  and seriously, when will overseas travel resume, only to be quarantined again.  

Eriksson, Petersson, and others are all literally waiting for that ship to sail too.

ps.  Signing him to a contract for next season IS manageable though.

“The team won’t be signing the huge and hugely enigmatic Russian until there is financial clarity about next season – and that could take months.”

 

Why wouldn’t the Canucks at least sign him to a one-year deal to finish this season as a starting point to see where he’s at? This is assuming that the regular season and playoffs could be saved. Don’t we have a bit of cap room right now?
