Nyquist is useless on the bottom 6, he is a top 6 or nothing player. He is tiny and weak. He needs to bulk up.
So if you want Nyquist, then say bye-bye to Brunner. Would people put Nyquist on the top 6 and lose Brunner for nothing? There is no risk in losing Nyquist, Brunner will NEVER pass waivers.
As for Sammy, who else shoots right, Nyquist or Tatar? NEITHER DO!
People don't understand that RH players are important. This isn't xBox Live, people!!!
Funny, Datsyuk started in a bottom six role. Maybe this team would be more successful going back to 3 scoring lines? Rotate Nyquist and Bert between Datsyuk's wing and with Helm/Tatar on the third line. Or throw Tatar on a line with Abby and Tootoo, put Nyquist on a line with Sammy and Helm...
Don't know why that is so impossible. Oh yeah, because Holland has too many skilless plugs.
Bertuzzi - Datsyuk - Nyquist
Filppula- Zetterberg - Brunner
Franzen - Helm - Sammy
Tatar - Abdelkater - Eaves
Or something like that. To me that's much more balanced scoring and gives Tatar and Nyquist real. You can roll four lines pretty evenly, IMO.
