The thing is, if you have to choose between Tatar and Nyquist (which it seems like they are doing), Nyquist is clearly better and more valuable. So there just isn't any room for a player like Tatar ATM.

The only way he was getting called up was if Nyquist absolutely sucked or we had more injuries (on top of Helm/Bert/Sammy)

And as these guys were all skating, it's not hard to do the math.

I also think there's a strong likelihood that the Wings won't have room for him to start next season.

Let the legend build, two overtimes, two points and one a GWG. Be interesting if we have an overtime killer in the organization.

One thing I REALLY like about Nyquist is that he hustles. Anytime he's on the ice he skates HARD, and he creates opportunities for his line mates each shift.

every game I watch I pretend Nyquist is my avatar on ice because he does exactly same thing I'd do if I were in that exact situation.

Not implying I'm as good/smart as him. Not even remotely in any slightest sense. It's just that he's a player I just understand why makes such decisions on ice. I'm sure alot of you have a player or two you just understand why he does stuffs on ice.

btw no homo.

Kid has shown a lot of guts and steps up his play the bigger the moment of the game. Kid has good wheels too.

In the highlights I saw how he finished his check on ducks defensman. Does he do that on constant basis?

He is going to way better than Jiri Hudler. Way way better.

It's sad that Brendan Saad is a Calder nominee and Nyquist isn't and its all because he has to rot in the AHL and not play a full season.

He doesnt finish like that all the time. Most of the time hes getting roughed up a bit but still fights through and uses his quickness.

I wouldn't say "most of the time" at all. It happens, sure, but most of the time he's quick and slippery enough to avoid it.

I noticed him finishing checks too though. Perhaps he has realized that's the only way he's going to take Abby's spot on the first line.

He's like Zetterberg. He doesn't really overpower anybody and his hits are weak, but he wins puck battles with pure effort and tenacity.

Saad also plays with superstars in the Top 6 for his team.

Too bad The Wings have their top six filled up with studs, which prevents Nyquist from playing next to either Z or Dats.
