If not taking a roster spot, they will most likely be knocking any of those 3 guys down to a smaller role, which isn't great for development either.
Everyone keeps talking (/complaining) about how the old guys are taking roster spots and how we have all these injury prone players, but that's how the NHL is these days...guys get injured.
Nyquist will have plenty of opportunity this coming season to prove if he's ready to be a core player.
