Some are really really over estimating Nyquist. he is not a future NHL star. Points in the AHL? Please. helm, emmerton, mursak, Abby, etc..... used to score in the AHL as well. There is no connection. At best nyquist is a 40 point a year guy in the NHL. heck, O'reilly who is YOUNGER than Nyquist is already producing more than Nyquist ever will. Before someone throws out tatar, he is deeper on the depth chart with less talent than Nyquist.
I love how you speak with such certainty. If you watch the Griffs games you can see how Nyquist controls and thinks the game. Comparing Helms AHL career .55 PPG with Nyquist being a point per game player is irrational. All of Helm, Emmerton, Mursak, and Abdelkader were no where close to point per game guys in the AHL.
I'm not disagreeing that some posters on this forum, in my opinion, are overvaluing Nyquist. But even the worst offenders are on par with how much you are undervaluing him.
