Tyler Myers

I'd seriously consider taking almost any young (early 20s) somewhat consistent top 4 dman over myers at this point. With that being said, with a different coach, he could maybe regain at least some of the form he had his rookie year.
What would your team give to get Myers?

He's so young still. No reason to give up on him.

Yeah look at Chara's career. Not saying Myers is Chara but he still has untouched potential like Chara did at one point.

This. It's not like we have anyone else who's even close to having that kind of potential on the blue line. And Leopold is still worse. Get him away from Leo and watch him improve.

I'm not advocating on trading him because we're not going to get the value we want with the way he's been playing. I pray that he will somehow bounce back into at least a top pairing guy.

He really lacks that little extra heart, mojo, swag, whatever. Just seems to go through the motions. Sort of has that Bouwmeester-ish demeanor.

Maybe Myers needs a trade to really blossom

He's honestly way below average so far this year. Part of that has come from playing with leopold, who has been equally terrible, but I just feel like he completely forgot how to play defense. His rookie year, he was using his size, speed, and reach to break up plays and force people to the outside. Now, all he does is go for big hits (Ruff stupidly is trying to make him into the next pronger even though it clearly hasn't been panning out) or lunge for pokechecks without moving his feet. It's like he's lost all of his hockey sense. And I think packing on extra muscle hurt him since he seems to have balance issues that weren't there earlier in his career.

Stajan, Hagman, Mayers, and White.

Basically, don't trade him.

Now that would be dumb.

They could expect a JVR like return instead

Doubt he moves. But would give up Larsen + Wing spec + for him.

What would your team give to get Myers?


If your gm was impatient enough to shop him, I'd want Snow to make an offer.
Only NYI I would not want moved, would be Tavares+ Hamonic.

What would your team most likely ask for?

I will put it in a way so that you can understand. He has yet to play a quarter of his career.

Crosby was terrible the other day against the Islanders. I was asking myself what happened to him.

Seriously, Myers is 23 freakin years old; this is his fourth year in the league and is playing the hardest position on the ice for a youngster. People really jump to conclusions - slow start means trade his ass. Patience is needed with him.

So, as a Habs fan are you now fine with Desharnais? I remember a big thread with a few Canadian fans ready to trade him for scraps. He looked good today.

This year, the circumstances are truly different. Alot of veterans are struggling out of the gate. Doesn't mean they need to be dumped. I cringe when I see a thread like this.

The thing is, he's regressed significantly every year since his rookie year. He's not just going through normal slumps (I completely expect that with pretty much any young player)-Ruff's trying to make him into something he's not, and it's majorly screwing up his game.

Well if Gaustad was worth 1 1st rounder, Myers should be worth about 10 1st rounders.
