This guy has a lot of penalty minutes for a 5'10 dude. I'll miss Shirokov, but he didn't fit here :(.

PRNuck 07-09-2011 01:19 PM

Just reading up on him, he sounds like the world's smallest goon.

timw33 07-09-2011 01:21 PM

Well at least we now have an asset that is not in Europe indefinitely.

Kagee* 07-09-2011 01:22 PM

Good depth for the agitating forechecker department, decent 4th liner and or callup for a checker.

Quote:

ASSETS: Plays with loads of energy when on the ice. Can play both wing and center. Is aggressive and feisty, but can also score at lower levels.

FLAWS: Doesn't have ideal NHL size, so his aggressive style may not be as effective against the NHL's biggest and strongest players.

CAREER POTENTIAL:
Agitating energy forward.
Should put on 5lbs of muscle to go up to 205lbs.

I think he has put some dues in 194 games played in the AHL, and had 12 games of NHL experience with Florida recently, plus being 24, could be a late bloomer to become a decent NHL forechecker/agitator that we are seriously lacking after Torres left.

Should re-sign at a good contract as well, another 2-3 year, two way contract?

thefeebster 07-09-2011 01:24 PM

Sounds like a pest and another forward position gone for our prospects at the Wolves.

Quote:

Im a big fan, DeBoer said of Duco. He does bring energy. When hes on the ice, hes skating, he's running around and he's chirping at people. Hes involved in the play. I dont think we've gotten that from our depth players lately.''

DeBoer compared Duco to Rangers pest Sean Avery, saying that if Duco had a few more inches on him, he wouldn't be relegated to bubble status. He'd be making millions,'' DeBoer said of the 5-foot-10 winger.

Ah such is the life of having too much depth, now we know how Detroit feels, its hard to bring in decent depth for youngsters, only premium prospects will ever get a chance to shine here now.

But its a small price to pay, IF we get that elusive Stanley Cup FINALLY!!

Canucker 07-09-2011 01:26 PM

How long until Florida puts him on waivers and he scores 30 goals somewhere else? :sarcasm:

vancityluongo 07-09-2011 01:27 PM

Gillis and Tallon must have a serious bromance going. This is what, the twentieth trade between these two teams? :laugh:

GCM 07-09-2011 01:29 PM

Panther fans are okay with the trade but sad to see Duco go.


This is a good thing methinks. This guy strikes me as a fan favorite sparkplug.

Placebo Effect 07-09-2011 01:29 PM

Another trade with Florida

JerkChicken 07-09-2011 01:32 PM

A few vids of Duco's work:

I wonder how many good prospects will flounder with AV at the helm of this team? Only guys who are first and foremost grinders ever get a shot at the lineup. Many fail (Bolduc, Glass, Rypien, Volpatti) and a few with some talent will succeed (Burrows, Kesler, Hansen). Guys like Grabner, Hodgson, Shroeder and Shirokov who have tons of skill but need to learn the gritty game will just get tossed aside to succeed elsewhere.

Tim Calhoun 07-09-2011 01:34 PM

It's important to keep a good relationship with our true farm team: the Panthers.

Vajakki 07-09-2011 01:36 PM

Seems kinda like Rypien but smaller and much worse fighter. I guess something like this was needed since players like Glass, Rypien and Desbiens have left the organisation this summer.

Bobby Lou 07-09-2011 01:41 PM

Mike Gillis continues to attempt to find his own Brad Marchand somewhere.

Ok...now that made me laugh.

Boooooth10 07-09-2011 01:43 PM

You guys are going to love him if he makes your team. He is a little ball of hate.

Sweet, he's something we exactly needed, he'll get a chance on the 4th line, if MG doesn't acquire anyone else by October.

PRNuck 07-09-2011 01:47 PM

Sounds like he's not actually very good at hockey...I fully expect him to be a new AV favourite.

cyrisweb 07-09-2011 01:47 PM

comparisons to Rypien seem pretty bang on.. without the nop notch fighting skills.. but without the injuries and emotional/personal issues.

biturbo19 07-09-2011 01:53 PM

In AVs world, this is a huge win.

Turn an AHL all-star and potential top-6 skilled forward and the leading scorer of our farm team into...a very small cheapshot artist/goon with lots of 'grit' and 'energy'.

lol.

If you can't play a two way game then you can't play on a good team in the NHL. Skilled players like the twins and Ehrhoff provide little to no grit have done extremely well under AV. He demands they play adequate defence as he should.

Rypien was too small to make an impact other than fighting. This guy is short but stocky. Guys like Tootoo make a living running around, this guy could do the same. All the better if he's a decent player.

Tin Horn 07-09-2011 02:15 PM

Meet the new Tanner Glass. Somebody needs to stand up and get punched on this team so that Daniel Sedin doesn't have to.

Shirokov signed a 3 year deal in the KHL and wasn't coming back to North America.... get something from nothing sounds pretty good to me.

JUMBOcanuck 07-09-2011 02:25 PM

Well at least the team got something for a player who wasn't going to make the team. I mean really though, Shirokov's 25 and wasn't even close to a PPG in the AHL. He might have a shot with the Panthers, but I'm not holding my breath.
