Tyler Myers

I feel like Myers merits his own thread.
I wouldn't be surprised if he slots in next to enstrom now but how do you guys think he will fit with our team going forward?

Former Calder trophy winner, possible downward trend?

Buffalo fans say his downward trend stopped last season.

His downward trend corresponds pretty closely to Buffalo's downward trend. Going to keep my opinion of him close to my chest until he's had some time to fit in with the stronger D-corp here, and within Maurice's system.

Does he have a NTC that kicks in on July 1? Is it full or limited?

This is my opinion as well. I think people are underestimating how bad his line mates and overall team were. He has an opportunity to play with one of the top D corps in the league now. I expect big things from him (no pun intended).

Myers has a NMC/limited NTC that kicks in for the 2016-17 season

I agree completely. i think Bogo is going to be over his head in Buffalo, while Myers will thrive here and really start to put up the big numbers again. I think Maurice helps him realize the physical side of his game, he'll be a monster out there.

the thing about that is, Myers has also missed a bunch of time due to injuries, so that does worry me a bit.

This is a big advantage over Bogo, who's NTC kicks in the day Buff could be extended.

MUCH more defensive depth in Winnipeg, so Myers doesn't have to play 25-30 minutes every game against the opposition's best players, he doesn't have to be relied on to be the PK and PP leader on the point, and doesn't have to carry the physical load. Put him on the Jets blueline, in Maurice's system, with a stronger team, and he will blossom.

219. I'm guessing he will continue to put on weight, but he'll never be close to Chara's weight.

Unless we make Buff share his food.

You will like him. He is a good skater, can lug puck out of the zone, plays the lanes well, can pinch and get back. Could be more physical and has a so so shot.

Said it somewhere else but I think we could potentially see the best of Tyler Myers under the structure and guidance of Maurice/Huddy. He was playing in a terrible system that was a vacuum for confidence in young players and was in a position to shoulder more than was needed in early years.

The great news is the kid didn't bust and even though the Sabres have been in tank mode for a couple seasons, he has managed to be one of the few bright spots. The coaching change certainly expedited that development and allowed him to flourish further.

So give him a system that works, a simple structure, and insulated with other veteran D men and this kid is going to do big things here. I would even go on a limb and say franchise changing. I am quite excited because he is coming into a system in Winnipeg that has been based around good character and team-first mentality; not to say Buffalo didn't have any of that, but a last place team invariably lacks in pretty well every area.

This could work out to be the perfect environment for Tyler Myers and as a Jets fan I could not be happier.

Hope he gets paired to Enstrom for the time being. See what he can do with the best partner we can give him.

This is the key right here and the rest will work itself out. This gives TNSE one more season than we had with Bogo. It allows us to get closure on the Buff issue while retaining maximum flexibility with trade partners. I still can't see us with a long term plan to have 3 super stud expensive RHD? As to Myers game if they partner him with Toby I think we will see the best he has to offer. I will remain hopeful but I am guessing Winnipeg fans will wonder why a 6'8" player isn't mean.

As long as no one expects him to lay out people with big hits, he will do fine. His downward regression is a myth. He's held the team together on D (as much as a team performing so poorly can be held together) this year imo.

Sadly I think once he hits game 5 we'll hear rumblings of him being 'soft'.

Definitely.

Enstrom-Myers
Chiarot-Buff
Stuart-Trouba

Put the kid in the position that gives him the best chance for success.

His current contract started in 12/13, and was heavily front loaded:

12.000 6.000 5.000 5.000 4.000 3.500 3.000 UFA

nhlnumbers.com is a reasonable resource, though nowhere near as good as capgeek was. http://stats.nhlnumbers.com/teams/WP...true&year=2015

I disagree with his downward trend corresponding with Buffalos downward trend.

For the last year, he has been Buffalos best player, eating tons of minutes against very tough competition. His points have suffered with the downward trend (like every other roster player), but that is the only part of his game that has not improved.

He is difficult to play against because of his size and the fact that he can cover so much ground both with his stride and his wingspan. He is not a physical player in the sense of blowing up guys with checks, but he uses his body well enough.

He is at his very best when he is engaged offensively, gallops with the puck, pinches and moves out of the defensive zone in transition with his skating and passing. He is a beautiful skater. If he is restricted, and has to think too much, he plays scared.

Don't expect him to be Chara and most of you will love him. He is just a bit inconsistent, so that will drive a few people (who expect too much) crazy.
