You'd think Nyquist would get the first shot since he's been with the organization for years, while Brunner has been with the team for less than half a year. But apparently Brunner is an exception. It's weird how Nyquist isn't even given a chance. Seems desperate if you ask me.

Do I hate the decision? No. But I think it's kind of hypocritical to what's been the "theme" in Deteoit for the past decade.
So, Babcock should base his lines on seniority with the team? I think Nyquist is going to be a very good hockey player, but if Babcock thinks Brunner is a better fit or better hockey player than Nyquist then he should get more IT. Keep in mind Brunner was a free agent, he's not some rookie that we just drafted and is getting special treatment over Nyquist.
