These one game showcases that Nyquist has received this year are flawed to begin with from an evaluation standpoint.
Look no further than Tatar. It took him about 3 consecutive games to finally break out of his shell. Only then did we start to see the real Tatar - a kid with confidence who was calling for the puck every time he was on the ice - rather than the kid who looked like he just didn't want to mess up for his first couple of games.
Giving a player, especially a skilled player who's game revolves around possessing to puck, can't be evaluated by giving him one game in at a time.
Look at what happened once Kindl was actually given a chance to play without the worry of being scratched for every single mistake. Kindl himself has recently stated that the confidence grows when you're actually given a shot to play.
