He also showed some skill by moving the puck well and finding players when it looked like that option was gone. In one of his first few shifts he cycled the puck well and chipped the puck right to Kronwall's (?) stick for a scoring chance.

He looks promising and just needs a few games. Nerves can get the best of anyone.
We only have 3-4 true top 6 forwards. One of our tweeners (Cleary) is injured. I see no reason not to give Nyquist more time in Detroit since everyone projects him as being a top 6 forward, which is exactly what we need. Sure he's not ready to dominate as a top 6 guy right now. But if you develop him maybe he can fill that role towards the end of the season and in the playoffs. That just seems to make more sense than hoping Hudler or Bert or Homer can fill a top 6 role. IMO that is never going to happen with any consistency or regularity with any of those guys.

You send him down instead of healthy scratching him tonight and Smith burns off another game from the suspension...it's all good.

and after the weekend there should be another wings game on a day with no griffins game and the suspension would be complete.

and that would give the wings another option for a change, the possibility to call up smith to let him play.

sounds like a plan.
