I don't think Nyquist's success in the NHL is dependent on him playing with Datsyuk. He's good on the puck, a shifty skater, can make some plays and finish as well. He'd do well on the 2nd line playing with Flip and Franzen, IMO. And if Babcock ever went to D/Z/Flip centering the first 3 lines, Gus could play with any of them.
