Where is Nyquist?
We are going to have to score a lot to make up for our lack of quality D this year if we want to win. I haven't seen much from Mursak or Emmerton to feel as if these are must keep players. What's their upside? 3rd line checkers at best.
Nyquist is going to take Filppula's spot in the top 6 next year. Maybe this year if we can trade Filp for some help on the blue line this year.
With Nyquist in the line up, he is helping the team this year and building for next.
