Filppula was amazing tonight. He was everywhere. Really sound I thought in the defensive end and had some flashy moves in the offensive zone. Hudler was useless as always. I agree get rid of him. Any updates on Eaves?

Eavsey is just fine :thumbup: there's just no reason to send him back out on a sore foot in the pre-season.

Sucks to hear Nyquist is going down, but he's waiver-exempt and I'd rather send him down safely than potentially lose someone else in the process.

I'm liking this Nyquist kid.

The Wings don't lose anything by putting Nyquist on GR, it just means he'll develop more and come back even sicker next year! Preseason was fun, but I really think its about time the season got underway. Hopefully some of the sloppiness these last three games was just preseason rust removal.

Nyquist is great, but I am not that upset with him being sent down - he's so easily knocked down - let him bulk up while he is waiver-exempt.

Let me have some of that Ian Hwite. You can't have a Red Wings team without Ian Hwite.

I like what Ericsson did there. Finally showing somewhat of a rough side.

No kidding. It's the best thing I've seen from him in that department. Laying the crosschecks on when guys stake their territory in front of the crease, keeping them away from Howard after the play so they don't pull any crap. It's exactly what the Wings have been lacking from their blueline. Making guys pay a price for standing in front of the net.

If he keeps that up and keeps playing more like he did tonight, he may have a chance at earning this contract. He was a little too aggressive with the stretch pass, but better he tests the waters in the preseason.

And Nyquist looked friggin awesome for a rookie. Is there really a chance he won't make the lineup? The only memorable mistake was the backhander at the end of the game, but that's something he'll learn from.

Kindl looked good out there on the power play. As he gets more comfortable I could see him picking up a lot of PP minutes. It'd be nice to have another option out there.

Hudler started slow but had some good shifts out there with Flip. He still needs to shoot the puck more instead of passing though, even in the preseason. Start getting those goals Hudlum.

EDIT: Just read the update on Nyquist going to the minors. I can see letting him develop some more, but on a lot of teams he'd be in the lineup. He certainly earned a chance with his preseason play.

If the Wings weren't as deep as they are this year he would have made it. With retirements coming up after this season it next there will be slots for him. No need to rush, he can develop better in GR.
