Nice depth move. Like his size and in the playoffs these are the kind of players that make a difference when the top guys are heavily checked. Nice cap number as well

Safe to say the people that hate this signing are the same that want Dubinsky shipped out of town.

With the departure of Prust, Pyatt is probably the best available player we could get for our bottom six.
Post Pyatt's numbers from the year prior.

18 goals 31 points +11

He can play. He adds very good depth to this team.

He's a good dude. He should fit in well with this locker room.

Mitchell was Ok and Pyatt is absolutely an upgrade in my opinion

Haven't seen Pyatt play much since his Islanders/Sabres days. For those who've seen him a lot in the last couple years, how good of a PKer is he? Solid at blocking shots and getting in the lanes?

Pyatt didn't play a single second of PK time last year.

He wasn't a PK guy in PHX.

Why do people try to use advanced statistics in hockey, it doesnt work. Baseball, sure its applicable, hockey it isnt....at all. Pyatt is a huge improvement over Mitchell, and at a very reasonable Cap hit. Good signing.

14.3% shooting percentage vs a 10.9% career average. Let's not count on that too much.

Although, unlike Mitchell, it's nice to have a guy who can actually have a statistical aberration.

I know. I posted last year's stats compared to Duby to show that he totally is worth his cap hit. Compared to Prust (who he's actually replacing), his stats blow him away.

You really think X is ready for a top 6 role?

I thought I knew something about Taylor Pyatt having seen him play on the Canucks for a few years (I'm from VanCity) but after reading all your insights and marvelous analysis, I don't know anything anymore

Very bipolar the opinions on Pyatt are... either a great addition or a horrible player.

Any time a player changes scenery, things can change. With Pyatt and the last 3-4 years he's had involving hockey/life, I'm sure NYC will be a nice new start for a guy with a lot of heart and he'll make the most out of it. I like the signing in general and this one I'm hoping will work. Great 2-year contract for very little money and a great guy with room for improvement.

Whether this has something directly to do with Feds, Dubi, trade etc., time will tell!

Both Rupp and Asham scratched? I'd imagine one of them will be scratched, not both.

You're not going to see both Asham and Rupp as healthy scratches every night. One or the other is going to play at the very least.

I personally don't think he's replacing anyone. We didn't have a guy like him last season.

I still feel we need to sign another depth forward like Fedotenko so Rupp and Asham can rotate in and out of the lineup and not have both at the same time.

Hagelin Richards Gaborik
Kreider Stepan Callahan
Dubinsky Anisimov Pyatt
Asham/Rupp Boyle Fedotenko

Good depth IMO.

It's time to put up or shut up for X- if he can't handle the top 6 it's time for him to get out of here. Maybe X, Christensen, and a 1st for Nash?

Forgot about Asham for a minute, sadly. You guys are right, he's gonna be in the line up.

Right now I have some serious buyers remorse with Rupp. 1.5 Mil as what should be the extra forward...at least Asham is cheaper.

-So far the Rangers are dominating, but from the little zone time Pyatt had he goes to the front of the net.
-Bickel out battles Pyatt on the boards at the blue line which leads to a scoring chance.
-Finishes checks.
-Chases Callahan and gets caught.
-Nice defensive positioning and to his stick in the lane and stop Girardi backdoor.
-This Gaborik vs playoffs Gaborik is day and night. He has so much more jump in his step and is hungry to score. (I believe this is the game where Smith stops him on a penalty shot in OT)
-There have been so many turnovers forced by the Rangers with Pyatt's line on the ice. I can't blame him for being out of position when they happen, the Rangers are dominating. I should watch a different game because after the 1st period I think Pyatt has been in the Rangers' zone twice. At the end he hit Dubinsky hard enough to send him to the dressing room early.

I am by no means a scout. I thought it'd be cool to share what I saw in the 1st period. I just can't stop admiring the Rangers instead, haha.

BB here would be a terrible coach. Juggling X between the 2nd and 4th lines, ****ing with his development.

No wonder BB is willing to include him in the Nash deal.
