In due time, SKYO I believe Tryamkin will be the best D man of the 2014 Draft Class. At the least he should have gone top 5 in 2014
So you're including KHL players and their KHL careers in your assessment of this?
He's a prospect of an NHL team, yeah/no? An NHL affiliated prospect voted defenceman if the month twice this KHL season so far, yeah/no? An NHL affiliated prospect with 9 goals 16 assists 109 PIMs in the KHL this season, yeah/no?

Cory Crawford suffering from vertigo and other symptoms. Could be done for the rest of the year.

As long as there is hope that Trymakin will one day return I think one can safely include him in prospects/young players with potential category. By all accounts he wants to come back but we are looking at at least one more complete season, potentially two.

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

Just when a young Demko could be starting his J. Quick/ Cory Schneider like skills. :wow:

Crawford diagnosed with post- concussion syndrome. Out indefinitely. Chicago on the hunt for a goalie before their playoff hopes disappear altogether. I don't think either of ours would inspire confidence though. Although I'd be tempted to trade Markstrom if I got a nice return. Let the Demko era begin!

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

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')
