^So... 1 -2 years from now? :mex:
You nailed it Doc!
That was at the start of the season. It’s down to 6 to 18 months now. Has there ever been a firm date posted on when he started blurting that out ? I know it was originally focus on 2-3 years from now but I think that first started at TDD 2016 but not positive. Doc was much more open minded about Benning during the first season and a bit of his tenure, then he went full troll. RD has been trolling the boards since Dave Nonis got fired

Yup all the best Russians are in the NHL, all the russkies always say this is the best league in the world, thus! Tryamkin will return if not for 2018/19, most definitely for the 2019/20 season just when:

Horvat
Pettersson
Gaudette

trio of canucks centers start to get their NHL skills going. :o
I believe his KHL contract ends in 19/20 and has no buy-out provision.

I've stated a few times that I will wait until the off-season to update the countdown

(last off-season I updated it to 1-2 years... next off-season I'll be saying '1 more year maximum')

Flood away.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Yeah, I think Doc said that in 1-2 years the Canucks will be good enough to get everyone talking around here. Or something equally noncommittal. Big deal.
