Podkolzin had 1 assist and 2 SOG.

 

He's at 3 points (1G, 2A) in 3 Playoff games.

He plays big in big tournaments.  World Jrs playoffs. 

 

Performs at most important time of year.

Love to see Tryamkin back, but do wonder about his desire to be here.  Pods is a superstar in the making.  

 

Agent Todd Diamond on #TSN1040 Rinkwide on Nikita Tryamkin : "It's very much on the table, the goal and desire is to sign in Vancouver, that's what we have had discussions about."

6-0 SKA

3-0 lead in series.

Don't know Pods' 

Right on. He looks to really be developing at the end of the season. Good sign for a young player as you always hope they make strides from the beginning of the season.

One more season playing in the KHL, and we will get a REALLY good player, who can jump straight into the lineup. Our Right wing is going to get a nice boost about a year from now.

Toffoli, Podkolzin, Boeser, Virtanen, Lind.  At least one will need to go.  Boeser could be traded for a top 4 Dman and we will still have 2 top 6 right wingers in Toffoli and Podkolzin.  Virtanen and Lind can play on the 3rd line.

Foli may or may not resign with us, Lind hasn't yet played a single NHL game and Pods still has another full season on his KHL contract after this one finishes. But I guess it's never too early to start thinking about dumping our best players.

We aren't dumping anything.  We are trading from a point of strength to get a player where we are weak.  And who said anything about trading Boeser BEFORE we re-sign Toffoli?  Of course if Toffoli isn't re-signed then you can't trade Boeser but if we do re-sign him then we have lots of upcoming right wingers to fill the gap on the right side.  And we can use one of those assets to beef up our defence.  Toffoli has 12 points in his last 10 games.  Boeser has 13 points in his last 23 games prior to his injury.  It's easy to figure out who the better player is.  You keep one or the other, preferably Toffoli.  If we can sign him long term then Boeser can be dealt for an upgrade on defence.

 

You also have to consider the expansion draft.  If you keep both Boeser and Toffoli then you have to expose another forward.  MacEwen would need to be exposed.  At the rate he's playing he could be one of our better forwards next year.  So you don't want to lose him for nothing.  With a cheap contract he'd easily be on Seattle's list of players to take.

 

At the end of the day when everyone is healthy one of our forwards has to go.  Too many young guys up and coming to keep them all.
