good stuff Sam. I'm glad we're finally close to the point where this happens or not. Nik is on the expansion exempt list so I'm assuming that means he can be signed at any point after his KHL deal is done.

 

He really seems to have developed into what we need. I love the idea of Juolevi and Nik as our 3rd pair. 

 

 

I like the idea of Tram with Huggy. While Tram is primarily a defensive Dman, like any player his value will be affected by how many points he gets. Playing with Huggy would likely be of significant value to Tram when it is time to negotiate his next contract. Can you imagine what would happen to an opposition player who messes with Tram's meal ticket? If he dies, he dies, lol.

Same could be said of Woo.  Perhaps his pairing with a similar style of player in Rathbone is auditioning for an eventual partnership with Huggy Bear

The great thing about all of this is that both Nik and Zhukenov have had solid icetime this season,.  Seems to me the prospects affiliated with the AHL  have not been getting much ice because of C19 in North America..  all teams avg 8 games played to this point.

This says a lot about development for all NHL prospects in North America.

I honestly don't think NT is coming back. He's doing well in Russia and things are going well for him, not too sure if he's going to want to leave a comfortable life there to play in Van. Hope i'm wrong though.

Neither of Tryamkin nor Woo are untalented in their own rights. On his first year back in Russia, Try was 9g 17a in 42 GP that is nearly a fifty point pace in an 82 game season. Woo racked plenty of points in the WHL. Partnered with Rathbone will likely add to Woo’s point totals as the season wears on.

it really does. I wish we had picked up another goalie and at least let DiPietro develop... right now we have our top goalie prospect doing nothing :( 

 

with the season in the crapper I hope we can pick up a goalie off waivers and get Mikey some AHL time. 

 

But as you point out, at least we have some development happening in Russia with Nik, Zhukenov and Podkolzin.

I never could figure out why a few months ago so many posters desperately wanted Pods to come over to North America immediately, so he could sit around doing nothing rather than continuing to play and develop in Russia.

Well, not exactly.  He is in the taxi squad, practicing with the team, and avidly listening to and soaking up everything that Clark is imparting to Holtby, Demko and, yes, DiPietro.  It's not wasted time,  it's invest in the future time

Here's an article from right after he signed his 1 year KHL deal:

It's things like this that make me certain we'll see him in a Canuck uni again.

nothing beats playing time tho. Its concerning to me if his entire year is only these activities.

dunno, I wouldn't want him on the taxi squad e.g. like Mikey is. I'm very happy with how Podz has developed, I think a lot of the angst was driven by some of our more marginal social media folks in Vancouver.

Try's playoffs start tomorrow vs Avengard. Auto was a .500 team in wins 30 W- 30 L record, and Avengard was 36 W- 24 L,  and +46 in goal differential. 

Try's team Auto was -2 in goal differential. My guess is Try will probably be out of the playoffs by next Monday. Auto might get one or two wins. Goaltending and scoring haven't been great for Auto.

I was just about to tell you to go back to Calgary, until I read your last sentence.
