HE broke his arm during the layoff, but he should be fine from that. I expect a solid season from him.. Hes not a flashy offensive guy. But hes skilled and steady for a guy his age. Probably 20-40 points on the conservative. Im more concerned about what he brings to the blue line. Hes a good passer, so he might surprise with his assists total, who knows what the new rules will bring.
As far as the future goes, i see him being a steady, slick defenseman with some offensive upside.
I would say Tyutin is a #2/3 D-man. I would say a player who will avg 30 or so points per year for example 6 goals and 25 assists, thats what I assume. i dont see him bieng so offensive but more of a all aound complete player who will be reliable defensively and offensively, but never exceptional at anything, but very good.
Based on what he showed with the Rangers for a few months, he looks like he could be a very solid #2 d-man. Probably in the mold of Ohlund. He's not too flashy in either end, but he quietly does his job without making mistakes. Sometimes the best defensemen are the ones you dont notice. Tyutin definately fits in that category.
But dont get me wrong, the kid is also very talented. He skates like the wind and has the ability to go coast to coast, but normally settles for the safe outlet pass. He has great puckhandling skills and has shown top notch puck poise for a young defenseman. Anybody who saw his 1st NHL goal against Luongo would attest to that. He's a strong kid, very good at pinning opposing forwards along the boards and winning loose-puck battles. But overall he's just fundamentally sound and disciplined.
i think he'll be better then what people expect. he's talented enough, and like said above seemed so natural
i think what hurts his projections is his nonflashy game however he clearly puts up numbers and is a more then solid player
i'm not comparing the two but who remembers neids to ever be considered a top 5 dman in the league - my point is he's not flashy, he's got a great skill set and is consistent, he doesn't stickout like leetch for example or pronger etc
Anybody knows why Tyutin is on the official 05-06 SKA roster?
I believe he did have a contract with them to play but with an out clause in case the NHL came back, which it did. last i heard was that he had left his Russian team and was coming back to the NHL (since he still has a contract with the rangers in any case)
they probably just haven't updated the roster to reflect that yet (or won't update it until the NHL season officially starts or something)
has decent size and skill. I hope he has the drive and energy to go out and do that now every night over an 82-game schedule. The potential is there, I believe, but sometimes (albeit few since I've only seen him a few times) I see Malakhov - which in the end, if you get a healthy Malakhov out of him, we may not be too upset.
As with so many prospects, this is a big year for Tyutin. I'm pretty excited to see what he brings.
as a Ranger - and some in the limited 'Pack games I saw him play - although admittedly his skating often appears effortless and thus can sometimes be deceiving.
I believe I read that there was that tendency too, albeit when he was 20 years old and just starting out in the AHL. But like I said, a healthy Malakhov was usually a top four defenseman in this league despite dogging it; it ain't the worse comparison - and teams such as Jersey and Philly didn't mind having him in recent years.
