Bertuzzi is like Tebow, no one cares if he does nothing for the first 3/4 of the game, as long as he pulls something out of his ass at the end lol.

Let me ask you something, Nyquist has produced at every level of hockey he has ever played at, you don't think he could match the production of these guys? These are 36 and 39 year old players who are 30-40 point players.
You're missing the point, the question isn't can "Nyquist out produce Bertuzzi?", because Brunner will be playing in the top 6. If Brunner is a flop, then he gets waived and Nyquist will get his chance.

In regards to Bertuzzi, Nyquist isn't a shoot out specialist (yet) that helps Wings get that extra point.

Nyquist is still undersized and is soft on the puck in the NHL level. He should use this year to put on some more muscle.

Right now, I think Brunner is more deserving for the top 6 role. He has awesome chemistry with Zetterberg and isn't afraid to go in the dirty areas. Perhaps Franzen can learn a thing or two from Brunner
