Size matters. I’m convinced that if we had Tryamkin this post-season, we would have got through the Knights and be playing in the conference finals.

He would have gotten us on the board in any of Vegas 3 shutouts of the Canucks?  I don't see it. Wasn't lack of defense or lack of size that killed us.  Lack of scoring did us in.

We hardly could get possession of the puck. A few timely hits by Tryamkin would change that in a hurry. Lack of size is what killed us against a stronger, heavier Vegas team. We looked physically and mentally beat in game 7.

Worthy of note, Matt Martins is an UFA this summer. If you want to settle Reeves down, this is the guy to do it. He really enjoys hitting :-)

I think Tryamkin will sign with Vancouver after the KHL season is over..

I listened to his agent at the start of the NHL playoffs, he basically said Vancouver could not commit to Tryamkin at end of July with so much uncertainty. Tryamkin had to sign KHL season at end of July...

Sure hope we can sign Tryamkin to a contract 2 yrs X 1.5 million show me contract..Tryamkin would give us toughness in front of net and offensive players will be aware when he is on the ice at 6'8, 265 lbs play # 5 spot..

Reeves doesn't need to be settled down. He took a 5 minute major. Shame on our PP for not burning Vegas with not even getting at least 3 shots on net, let alone 3 goals like the Sharks did last year.

 

I'd say let Reeves run around. We don't need Martins.

Watched him play a litte bit today.

Only highlight I caught before I had to leave was Tryamkin covering for his defense partner,

'who was getting pyloned' off the LW and Tryamkin skated hard across from his RD position dove on his belly and swung his stick to knock the puck away from the speedy winger and avoided a penalty on the move..

A desperation dive to halt a offensive foray.

High compete level.

Very worthy Fred, good call.

I will never understand why we pontificate about signing lightweights to over-valued contracts.

When the going gets grindy, they, to a man, turn whimp.  In it for the dollars only.

Give me a team who enjoys hitting every time.

Imagine a team backed up by Myers, Tryamkin, Martins and MacEwen.

Imagine how tall suddenly everyone else plays - Virtanen, Beagle, Rouselle, etc.

Imagine the option of swapping complete rosters with '10 Bruins or post-draft Vegas.

Nah, we wouldn't even imagine doing it.

I recall Marcus Nasland saying Wade Brookbank made every one on the bench 6" taller

Make no mistake about it. If we bring in Tryamkin, his role will be clear. Stick up for teammates, hit as much and as hard as you can while remaining defensively responsible and keeping the net clear. He will never be  star player for us, but could fill that role better than anyone else. I think given the way we had difficulty being outmuscled in the playoffs that its clear we need to get bigger and tougher to play against and I feel signing him goes a long way towards that goal.

 

With that said, I also believe we need an offensive defenseman in the lineup not named Hughes. Edler and committee can help, but our d is not dynamic enough. If Benning and co don't think we will have that 2nd guy soon in Rafferty or Rathbone (or long shot OJ) then I think we need to look for such a guy.

sometimes I wonder what it will be like if Tryamkin was available to Green during the playoffs.  

You're not the only one.  Now if Benning can only find the cap space to sign hometown boy & RHD Brendan Dillon, to add to Myers & Tryamkin for next year's playoffs, we won't have to endure anymore nightmares where Vegas (or anyone else) runs over all our D and pins us in our own end for minutes at a time again!
