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.

One game into the season doesn't warrant a call up. He'll be up along with Sheahan and Lashoff though if things don't change
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not really sure how a small, skilled, playmaking forward would have helped us last night.  Especially considering how the small, skilled, playmaking forwards we already have (and whom are all better than Nyquist) were nonexistent last night.  If Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Flip couldn't handle the Blues, Nyquist sure as hell couldn't. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Nyquist didn't get the memo that the lockout ended, he's playing squash in Europe somewhere.

This is called depth, and forecasting. If we brought up Nyquist at the start of the season we would have lost Mursak, Emmerton etc. for nothing. Better to have too many forwards and when injuries happen you can call up the players still on two way deals. And if things go really bad, then you can still make the roster moves later. Just gives the team much more options.

I think it's more that Ken Holland really likes old guys.

Mursak, Smith, and Emmerton are positively decrepit, right?

I've seen flashes from Nyquist that suggest he could be a player.  Mursak and Emmerton have never shown me anything, and they had some terrible turnovers on Saturday, though that was true of a lot of guys.

not by any stretch....I just happen to have been relocated to the wrong state.  In all fairness, Mursak and Emmerton were terrible on Saturday, and Smith wasn't that good either.

To say they played bad on Saturday is fine.. But that doesn't make them terrible players. Nearly every player on the wings played bad on Saturday.

Playing a terrible game and being a terrible player are entirely different things.

And until they do something noteworthy, they pretty much will still be terrible in my book.

Well if Holland could get anything worth it for Mursak and Emmerton I am sure they would have been traded by now, but sadly nobody is giving up anything for two guys who will never be NHL regulars.

Was scoring 7 points in Smith's first 14 games noteworthy?  Or is that why he's designated "not that good" instead of "terrible"
