Taylor Pyatt

What do you guys think of Pyatt? Any teams interested and what kind of player could he fetch in a return?

If Selanne retires or signs in Finland I could see the Ducks making a pitch.

The most you could probably expect is liquid assets (picks/prospects).

IF I was a GM I might offer Gillis a 6th round pick for him.

McGrattan was worth a 5th, Pyatt is worth more than THAT.

If Sundin signs with the Canucks I think Pyatt is a good bet to be dealt. The Canucks would likely be more interested in picks/prospects than current NHL'ers as they'd be looking to shed Pyatt's salary.

He's not worth much.....couldn't even be consistent with the Sedins.

i think he's worth a second rounder but I wouldn't be surprised to see him garner more money. There's always something intruging about a big body who can score over 20 goals in a season

Pyatt was worth a 4th when we dealt him to Vancouver. His improved numbers might fetch him a 3rd, although that was definitely riding some pretty good coattails.

I dont think anyone would be willing to give up much more than a mid-late round pick for him.

to be fair, his 20 goal season was due largely on playing with the sedins, he himself isn't a 20 goal scorer IMO.
however, he is a pretty decent 3rd liner, have size and decent defensively. 3rd round pick seems fair, 4th round pick or less if its strictly a salary dump. i wouldn't mind keeping him on the team if cap space permits.

Pyatt didn't get much help from the Sedins last season at all. He managed 15ish goals, 35ish points playing with Raymond, Shannon, Kesler, Burrows, and occasionally Morrison/Cooke, and every time he was taken off one of those lines, that line would struggle offensively.

Personally, I think if all he'd fetch is a 4th I wouldn't trade him. Pyatt at 1.5 >> Pettinger at 1

Pyatt's point totals were exactly the same as the year before when he was supposedly just riding the coattails of the Sedins.

He is underrated... especially by Canuck fans.

i think its a matter of how big he is, yet doesnt throw hits..(well maybe sometimes but rarely for his size) and gets knocked off the puck like a 190 pounder.

He himself isnt a 20 goalscorer but he himself is a 3rd liner who can be moved into the top 6 due to injuries and not look (too) out of place. Something every team can use. What is up with people saying he is worth a late round pick?

that's quite an exageration. He was the most effective canuck in front of the net. I don't think the opposing defense thought he was that easy to move or knock down

as well, he hardly ever got knocked off the puck, but he's had the puck stripped away from him at times... but that's more of a puck control issue than a size issue.

the most effective bangers in the NHL are not the guys who are 6'4 230 lbs. take a look at most guys his size like penner etc. they aren't throwing their body around a lot. He was expected to produce some offense and he did.

as well, I think despite the fact that he's a left handed shot, he still produced with the Sedins and I for one think that means something... especially since I believe not everyone can score 20 plus goals with the sedins. it takes a player who can play that kind of style.

He's also a decent fighter and is not afraid to drop the gloves with heavies. I think that is worthwhile mentioning as he doesn't look out of place in the top 6, and when games get rough, it might be worth slotting him in on one of the lines.

He's already proven to be an effective 2 way player.

I think it would be a mistake to trade Pyatt at this point when the Canucks should be getting bigger and stronger without compromising so much in the skill.

maybe i am a little. i just always seem to remember seeing him getting rubbed out against the boards while trying to enter the zone. you have to admit he doesn't use his size like he should.

that's subjective. He's 6'4 230, but he's also playing against dmen are almost that size themselves. smaller, quick players can avoid those kinds of checks from time to time but big guys have to suffer through them all the time. I think he suffered the same thing that many canucks were down the stretch and that is pure fatigue. Being one of the few big bodies that was capable of fighting through checks and screening goalies, that doesn't surprise me at all as the Canucks didn't have many options.
