Nyquist got 'screwed' (yes, I realize the contract problems) he deserves to be on the team now.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

blueadams why do you keep posting lines with Holmstrom on the top line? He's not going to be on the top line this year....


he'll swap with cleary, a lot.

Not only does he make the team, but he plays on the top line all season.

What an achievement.

And with Homer on the line to boot.

I hope Datsyuk doesn't die of exhaustion by the end of October if that's the case.


1) i truly believe that nyquist is pav's best linemate on the roster right now (next to filppula, of course, but babs is dead-set against playing them together for some reason).

2) homer would swap with cleary, a lot.

Wings assign eight to Grand Rapids
Sunday, 02.10.2011 / 8:51 PM / Press Release By Rick Bowness - Public Relations Coordinator DETROIT -- The Red Wings today announced that eight players have been reassigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins (AHL): forwards Tomas Tatar, Gustav Nyquist, Landon Ferraro, Joakim Andersson, and Brent Raedeke, defensemen Travis Ehrhardt and Brian Lashoff, and goaltender Jordan Pearce. Thirty players now remain in training camp.


just delaying the inevitable imo (or maybe buying time to arrange a trade for emmerton/miller).

If Nyquist made the team and didn't produce or do anything everyone would be calling for his head. This is the right move and I'm glad our management does this. Babs in a post game interview said if Nyquist continues to be hot in GR he will be called up. Fair enough imo.

Do you really have to create a new line thread EVERYf****** DAY? Jesus dude, get a grip.

That said, my would-be lines...

Zetterberg Datsyuk Cleary
Franzen Filppula Nyquist
Brunnstrom Helm Eaves
Bertuzzi Abdelkader Holmstrom
Emmerton/Miller

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Blueadams,

Piss off with the multiple line threads.

blueadams Homer and Cleary won't be switching a lot cause Cleary won't be playing on the 4th line. Even you should know this. Homer's minutes are going to be dramtically less unless we're on the PP a lot. I think Homer might (might) get a chance on the top line but it all depends on who's producing and putting up points 5 on 5 especially. Thank f your not the coach lol

He needs to be on the team just so everybody can learn how to pronounce his name correctly.

Sooner or later "Nyequist" will be the next "Zetterburg." Neither of which are even close to how those names should be pronounced.

The closest way I can demonstrate this over text is Nyew-queest (with a hint of V within the u) and Setterbearj (the j is mostly silent).

Just like how Filppula is supposed to sound like Philp-Pula as if an accent is over the third P.

Nyquist showed very solid fundementals and a great understanding of the game. on top of that he really showed he can produce at the NHL level, even if it was preseason. The Wings have enough depth they don't NEED him, and it is better for him to stay down in the AHL and develop another year instead of being brought up to the big time and having his development stifled. I would have loved to see him play and I think he'll be part of a solid, young core in a year or so along with Emmerton and Brunnstorm.

WRONG.

Zetterberg is Zetterberg. Nyquist is Nyquist.

We are not in Sweden. We are in America. And in America, we speak English.

That's rather disrespectful. Nyquist has shown he is a young, passionate, talented player. He deserves the same respect as a player that anyone else gets. You don't pronounce The Rocket's name wrong so you shouldn't pronounce Nyquist any different. Announcers and fans should always attempt to say the name right. Casual fans can be forgiven, but if you know the right way you should always use it.

That being said, the point was originally brought up as a joke, so let's focus our aruement on how good he actually is.

I love how so many people on here have the "remove Hudler from the lineup simply for the sake of removing him" concept stuck in their head. Is Nyquist better than Hudler right now? Probably not. Will he be in three years? Maybe. But having a guy like Nyquist who can be sent to the minors now, and benefit from playing top-line time with guys like Tatar who he will likely play with for years to come, instead of spending quality time in the press box with some two-man combination of Drew Miller, Justin Abdelkader, Fabian Brunnstrom, Jan Mursak, Cory Emmerton, Patrick Eaves, Mike Commodore, Jakub Kindl, and Jonathan Ericsson. There's no point to having Nyquist on the team this year unless Hudler plays out the beginning of last season all over again. And even then, the Wings are still more than loaded up front with Z, Dats, Franzen, Flip, Cleary, Bert, Homer all being strong offensive players, as well as Bruno and Emmerton available to take Hudler's ice time if offense is really an issue.

WRONG.

There is no official language in the USA. We speak English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, German, Portuguese, Greek, Italian, Gaelic, and every other language known to man. Yes, English is dominant, but not to the exclusion of all others.

As for the names; they do not change because they are being pronounced by someone in their non-native tongue. The person might not say it correctly, or be able to say it or used to saying it correctly; but it doesn't make it correct. For example, regarding the name Sergei, "SIR-gei" is not correct. "SAYER-***" is correct. Generally, anyway. There are always exceptions. Andrea is a common name in the USA which has multiple pronunciations with the same spelling. Or the name Mikael; "MICK-ull" or "Mick-A-ull" with the same spelling.

Go tell Dustin Byfuglien that his name is not pronounced "BUFF-lin", but instead is pronounced "By-FUG-ly-enn" because "We are in America. And in America, we speak English. Period." See what he says to that.

"Im not trying to take anything away from the kid, he was outstanding, hes been great all camp," Babcock said. "But the league usually gets to another level (in the regular season). Well see what the guys we have can do, and if (Nyquist) just keeps playing so good that hes got to be on the team then hell be on the team."


Everything in Nyquist world will be fine.

WRONG AGAIN. English is our national language here in America. Official or Unofficial makes no difference. We speak English. Therefore, the announcers pronounce the names on the back of the sweaters in English. And yes, Frenchies get a pass because they started the fricking sport. So Richard is Rih-shard and Messier is Mess-ee-ay. But that's as far as it goes.

The only name you don't make an effort to pronounce correctly is Roy.

Why? Because their name isn't English.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Why not instead of signing Brunnstrom, we just give Nyquist the spot? Brunner looked good his first couple games then started to resemble Hudler, who looked like garbage. Start Gus on the 3rd line and then let him dangle from the 2nd line.
