With all of Rutherford's and Allvin's talk about the importance of going after unsigned Europeans and leaving no stones unturned in finding ways to improve the team, is anyone else surprised that there has been absolutely no indication of them taking another look at Tryamkin?  I definitely am.  Especially since the chances of him wanting to come back would seem better with him the new management and coaching staffs, as well as seeing that we're more than willing to give Russian players (i.e., Podkolzin) a fair chance to play.

I'm not surprised at all. The ship has sailed. He wasted to much time toiling away in Russia. There is no way he can catch up on all the time lost. He was horribly out of shape at 22, which is kind of a joke in itself, but now 5 years later how much worse will he be now? Combine that with the fact he is too good/entitled to work on his conditioning in the AHL and you have a non-starter.

What evidence shows you that?  He was out of shape and barely third pair when here. He hasn’t exactly torn up the KHL since then either. 
It is a big assumption that he can even be a regular NHL depth defence man if we take off the homer glasses, it has never been an expectation that he has near the talent as a first pair guy. 

 

On a deal with term wouldn’t give him more than 1.5. Needs to show that he can be an NHL defence man.  Poolman earned his contract by playing as a NHL regular, his agent earned it by finding a bad GM to overvalue him. Tryamkin can’t do either of those things. 

There is none. It's pure delusion. He was barely good enough to make our absolutely horrible defence 5 years ago as a fringe 5/6/extra. If he wanted to play in the NHL he needed to keep getting better and keep playing and learning his trade in the NHL like any normal rookie. Not sipping Vodka and getting fat in Russia playing subpar hockey. He would need to go in and prove himself on limited minutes and healthy scratches for a year or two like he should have done in the beginning. He doesn't have a sliver of the drive or sacrifice required to do so now. Really he never did. :bored:

Well I tend too think he's likely fired his bolt and is now to slow for todays game. But my God he put the fear of God on wingers trying to down the left side, he crushed them. I recall Jamie Benn taking exception to him flattending two of his team mates and dropped the gloves, I admire your courage Jamie but it was a bad mistake.

He’s been doing well on a poor team, @Hairy Kneelhas watched him more than I have.  But he hasn’t lost his step.

Coached under Bill Peters 2 years ago , Niks ice time averages out around the 22 min point.

was getting a lot of pk time.

still plays a physical game, fleet footed, quick to shut down a cycle.

he would blossom quickly under Boudreau im sure. I think he is getting tired of the KHL, and perhaps realizing “home” may not be the best place to stay given the War and how it might effect the KHL.

I think if he is to leave he would do so discreetly, given today's volatile pol climate. It'd be close to a escape status, I think there was a cap of 10,000$ anyone could leave with. 

He's fast as ever. He outgrew his chubby phase. Many NHL'ers left so he may want to follow suit. His goalie bought himself out the previous year so Diamond may consider that. 

It's time to lose those old out of shape narratives, catch up.

If he attended a camp and showed promise then the Canucks can consider signing him. Considering the CAP and the existing contracts with the d-core I am not optimistic that will happen.

He’ll have UFA status, and there will be enough teams interested that he’d be guaranteed to get signed before having to set foot in a training camp.

As long as it's not with us I'd love to watch him get embarrassed on the ice and then pull the entitlement card on some other team.

Considering he still follows the Canucks and his FaceBook/ Instagram profiles have him in a Canuck Jersey,  I think there would be a tendency to return to a team where friendships have been established, and with a Coach that a fellow Russian Player enjoys playing for.

I’m sure it’s a bigger opportunity for him to leave his home country that is going to be a mess for several years to come.

Don't we have his rights this coming season?

This would be great for us (Likely for him too).  I still find it weird the continuous narrative about being out of shape and slow.  He was always a fairly quick skater and he wasn't projected for top pair mins.  He held up just fine and would likely have improved here like he did in the KHL.  I also have no idea where the entitled narrative comes from.  I bet many of us would have done the same thing as him in the situation.

 

Either way, Tryamkin would bring exactly what we need to the D core.  I would have no problems giving him a 2-3 year contract for stability and then seek another strong stay at home RD.  I will always hold out hope that he will return unless I see him join another NHL club.

I think a tryout situation would be appropriate in training camp. Would show his skill level compared to his potential team-mates. If that process was a successful one,

then you could talk contract, and even then, a short term one to start. I would think he would understand that as would his agent. 

Not sure about 17103478_1143748309086855_25858130284698 the way everyone would see it.

If he is as good as you think, he'll be picked up from the UFA market.

Given what is going on in Russia, their invasion of Russia is not going well,  and aggressive sanctions are in place to last until a regime change happens, and a move to becoming a Democratic Country happens,

I do not think the KHL will survive the collapse of the economy.

One would hope that Tryamkins agent is telling him to get out, and get to North America for many reasons.

Frankly, I don’t think Todd Diamond has any real relationship with this player..

Im hopeful, Tryamkin, his wife, and his two children exit for their own well being.

They decided to go back home thinking it was stable , and they would do well there.

But all of that is about to change.

 

Tryamkin, may be having these thoughts already,  last seen two weeks ago on a beach in on the Indian Ocean.….  and this “like” , to my comment on his “post”, about 2 months ago.

With us HOPEFULLY,  or with someone else,  I look forward to watching this player more in North America.

 

but I do think he should seek the representation of someone else, Dan Milstein has been around for a while and is representing Kuzmenko..  might be a good fit.

 

@Googlie, if I’m correct, also mentioned a grape vine rumour that Nik was hinting at coming back..   only 2 or 3 degrees apart from  that rumour as I recall ;) 

 

Damn I’d buy an Avtomobilist 88 jersey to wear and watch him play here in.


Really hope the Canucks brass reach out to all they hold rights too, ask the straight questions, and give the straight answers to.

 

Ps.   Even after the fact,  a professional tryout offer can happen anytime.

Nik is in a position to cancel the last year of his KHL contract right now.
