Yes! Let's play this game!!!!!

Nyquist has dominated the NCAA and the AHL but cannot get more than a cup of coffee in the NHL. Tarasenko played two whole seasons in the KHL. I know I'm awfully impressed.

The Blues drafted guys like Tarasenko and Backes and don't have old guys like Cleary, Bert and Sammy to keep him from playing in the NHL. No, they give these guys a chance to develop and isn't it a surprise they actually develop. Meanwhile we've got guys like Gus Nyquist and Kyle Quincey - the latter being a first round draft pick - who are never allowed to sink or swim at the NHL level.
