Very positive read,  thanks for posting this link.

I think this comment says a lot :

 

His agent is saying all the right things, adding that Tryamkin would arrive to Vancouver well ahead of training camp to work with Canucks staff so that he can “hit the ground running.”

 

I wonder if Management would hire “Rippers” dad to show him a few things on the heavy bag too ? ;) 

Not that he needs any coaching on aggression, which is the key thing... but if he also knew how to fight NHL style, then he'd be devastating... the league would be tiptoeing around him.  ;)

However don't let me stop you from continuing your tirade against Jim. 

Not a tirade just trying to get my point across with facts to that guy from Vegas who thinks JB knows how to manage the cap and started to say it wasn't JB's  fault for not resigning Toffoli where JB is at fault for multiple reasons unless something surfaces that the Aquilini's were responsible for not resigning Tanev and or Toffoli. 

I agree that resigning their young guys like Juolevi, Lind, Podkolzn and Chatfield most likely will be easy to fit under the cap but that doesn't improve the team. That's bad news for upgrading the defense as they needed to get another Schmidt type deal before the expansion draft to get better and I really hope the Canucks don't sign Tryamkin as I would much rather see Rathbone. 

Just my 2 cents

Vegas was right.

Did you ever watch Malcom in the Middle where the little kid thinks he is having a good logical conversation and in reality he is rolling on the ground screaming and yelling. Kinda reminds me of you and some other posters.  Waaa Toffoli Waaa This

Fight NHL-style? 

Two sissies trying to scratch each other on ice. 

A hard hit on the ice is much scarier.

I think people underestimate his distraction value. The guy is a massive presence, and has literally crushed a player. He's going to be a major presence on the ice. 

 

I do think the ref's are going to invent a new category of penalties for him tho, but that will just have to be part of it. Opposing players are going to dive around him like its an Olympic qualifier. 

No need to, they already have one in the rulebook (in super-fine print) - it's called "Being a member of the Canucks".  :bigblush:

otherwise known as "where's Myers?" 

 

I do think he'll take a lot of penalties for being big, that gift of avoiding that only seems to belong to Chara.

It's called the "Jeremy Jacobs clause".  Also super-fine print.

I mean this regarding Zadorov:

 

Latest On Nikita Zadorov, Chicago Blackhawks

April 20th, 2021 at 8:30pm CST • By Zach Leach

The Chicago Blackhawks were reportedly listening to offers for defenseman Nikita Zadorov at the NHL Trade Deadline, but ultimately decided not to move him. However, that doesn’t mean that the two sides will stay together for much longer. As Ben Pope writesfor the Chicago Sun-Times, the Blackhawks have dropped some hints that they are not content with the big blue liner and time is running out for him to prove himself.

Zadorov, 25, is in his first season in Chicago after coming over from the Colorado Avalanche in the Brandon Saad trade this past off-season. The Blackhawks hoped that Zadorov would step into a lineup that was missing many difference-makers on the back end and would transform into a bona fide top pair defenseman. While Zadorov has still been impressive as a physical force and solid defender, there has not been much else to praise about Zadorov’s game this season. He has been firmly entrenched as a second-pair defender in terms of time on ice, is fifth in defensive scoring and even lower in per-game production, and is on pace for a career-high in giveaways, even in a shortened season. Zadorov has merely continued to play the same role in Chicago as he did in Colorado, that of a complementary stay-at-home defenseman. While that is not without value, it isn’t what was expected of the 2013 first-round pick and may not be worth the cost to the Blackhawks. The team has not-so-subtly expressed their frustration recently, acquiring a younger and similar style of defender in Riley Stillman and then making Zadorov a healthy scratch on deadline day after discussing him with other teams beforehand.

This off-season, Zadorov presents a number of challenges to Chicago. The impending restricted free agent will need a new contract, which at a minimum will require a $3.2MM qualifying offer. However, despite his underwhelming effort this season, Zadorov can probably argue for making more than that and has the option to file for arbitration to support that claim. The problem for the Blackhawks is that they have very few contracts coming off the books this off-season and are projected to have limited cap flexibility to make other moves. Retaining Zadorov at a higher number even further reduces that cap space without making a material change to their roster, which is only a fringe playoff team this season. A potential arbitration case makes using their cap space even more problematic. If the relatively young blue liner demands a long-term deal as well, that becomes an issue with a number of young players already pushing for play time. Beyond the actual contract, the only way that Chicago can ensure that they even retain Zadorov’s RFA rights beyond July 21 is to protect him in the upcoming NHL Expansion Draft. With Duncan Keith and Connor Murphy as virtual locks to be protecting, adding Zadorov to that group would mean exposing valuable veteran Calvin de Haan and the recently-acquired Stillman. Yet, if they don’t protect Zadorov he could very easily be selected and lost for nothing.

In order to avoid a difficult expansion decision and possible contract battle and arbitration case, the Blackhawks may decide to re-ignite trade talks for Zadorov once their season has come to an end. Until then, Pope notes that Zadorov will be given every chance to prove that he is worthy of a longer look in Chicago. With de Haan and Adam Boqvist currently injured and the Blackhawks fighting for a playoff spot, Zadorov has the chance to step up and finally show that he can be a complete top-four defenseman. If he succeeds, perhaps all of the off-season issues fall by the wayside in favor of keeping a rare physical specimen and good young defender at all costs. However, if he falters then the partnership between the Blackhawks and Zadorov could be coming to an end sooner rather than later.

I’m considering this a “poster bomb”..

What the hell are you doing in this thread Timra !?   ...  shouldn’t you be in the Utica Comets Thread defending Louie Eriksson?

i think that poster was saying “if” he can fight NHL style,.   Say like Chara can dominate in a fight,   It’s another level of intimidation that player can bring to his game.

 

no one said “tough”,  but you..  I think you took his comment out of the context it was meant to be.

Tryamkin brings a lot actually,  and to have an above average skater at 6’8..  who was in his rookie season here as a 21 yr old taking on the likes of getzlaf and Benn,  is pretty amazing.

His quote can be interpreted in more than one way. 
 

As I recall Tryamkin isn’t a Ferland”to fight anything that moves”-kind of guy. 
just a tough skater that hits hard.

So I hope he don’t fight as the ”sissies” I have seen occassionally.

I want icehockeyplayers to play hockey, not act like they are a pro wrestler.

Let’s face it the NHL is down on fighting. Fans aren’t but who cares about that. Tryamkin might have to deal with some fighting on the first circuit around the league but like Chara that should taper off. Signing Tryamkin has more to do with his physical ability to overwhelm opposing players in the d-zone. That be by hits, physically moving players, physically blocking movement, stick checking, and good old cross checks. His reach is huge. All Canuck fans should be very excited about his return.

Indeed we should.  Heres a guy who has made a commitment to learn English, was ready to come back last year but understood the problems Benning faced with covid and the flat cap so signed a 1 year deal with the KHL. And by all accounts got better, accepting a more defensive role at the expense of offence

 

Now he's ready.  Will come over early summer to acclimate and meet with the training staff to find out what they think he should work on.  There's commitment and maturity.  There's a guy who sees the exciting future of our Canucks and wants to be part of it.

 

6'8" smooth skating hard hitting defensemen who can play either side are rare.

 

I, for one, am excited!!

Tryamkin dosent need to fight..  but he may have to a few times to show he can back up his hits..

   :this against a 6’2 power forward in March 2021,   Could be what comes next to Jamie Benn.
