Mike Babcock said @GNyquist will be in #RedWings' lineup when they host @mnwild Tuesday. Not sure who he'll replace. @DetroitRedWings
This should make a few people happy. Looking forward to seeing what he can do.
From a GM, "Detroit is the best team we've played this year. It's not even close. Their puck control is incredible...You have to hope your goalie has a great night to give you a chance."
I haven't been this excited in a long time, and can't wait to see what the kid can do in a real NHL game. I hope this situation ends up playing similar to the way the Filppula situation played out when he first played on the team. From what I remember, he was initially an injury call up, but played well enough that they decided to keep him on the roster once injured players returned.
I think Nyquist has the hunger to perform and keep a spot in the lineup I expect huge hustle from him in his first game even if it is against those trapping wild
Hooray, now i have a reason to care about tomorrows game.
I look forward to seeing Nyquist out work half of the Wings roster and hopefully he is the beginning of the end for Jiri Hudler.
That'd be my guess, we have the bottom 6 more than filled. Huds hasn't been able to hang in the top 6 so it makes sense to give Nyquist a shot on a scoring line. Bringing Nyquist up just to play 7 mins on the 4th line doesn't seem likely, but knowing the Wings they could give him very little ice time early on. I hope I'm wrong though and he's in the top 6.
Look good? I'd like to see Cleary sit until he's fully healthy and have Brunnstrom play with Nyquist and Zetterberg and put Franzen up in Cleary's spot, but that's not happening.
This could be the line that sparks detroit goal scoring drought and very easily could be the line that helps Z get out of this funk...speaking of Z, whats going on w him? I wonder if he has a personal problem that he kept to himself. He is so private and soft spoken at times, the only thing that could be the problem, is a little off ice problem that will be resolved...or he could just need a player like Nyquist
I do, too. I'm also wondering if we're going to see some lines we might not like, though. I have to wonder if Babcock is already going to decide that Helm isn't a third line center, and that we'll go back to Z-D-Flip-Helm up the middle.
