Sucks cause nyquist has been a great player for us lately. effective puckhandler and playmaker. 

NOTE: It will be cool to have nyquist down with Jarnkrok and Tatar to maybe develop some friendship/chemistry...

 

Nyquist's time in the NHL this season has proven that Tatar is far readier than he is.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him get flattened in his first NA game like Brunner did.

I can agree with this. Nyquist shows that he can be a good player, but he seriously needs to get stronger on the puck. It was way too easy for defenders to give him a little push and he would fall right off of it. Tatar, while similar structure (5'10 182 compared to 5'11 185 nyquist) to nyquist just seems far harder to get off of the puck. He can drive the net harder, and I see more of a spark from him than I do Nyquist. Not that i'm looking down on Nyquist and see no hope for him, but he NEEDS to be stronger on the puck. Tatar to me, is like a Helmer to this team, he's a sparkplug. When he's playing, the team plays faster. He just ignites the engine like Helmer. I haven't seen that from Nyquist, but Nyquist's 2-way game is worlds ahead of Tatar's, in my opinion.

I want to give Samuelsson a chance, but I just don't care he's coming back. Maybe he can stay healthy and come up clutch in the playoffs again.

 That could be quite fun to watch.  Jarnkrok is a C too with Tatar and Nyquist at wing so it's like it was meant to be.  Sammy can jump in Nyquist's spot.

You have got to be the biggest pessimist on the LGW boards :P. While others get excited and throw ideas out there we always have good ol' crimson to shoot them down. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

The line of Tatar - Andersson - Nyquist did quite well when they were together in the NHL.

Unless you've the belief that we should waive our captain, I'm thinking you mean Jarnkrok at center.

I doubt he can stay healthy

If he does, the shins of Detroit opponents certainly won't stay healthy.

every player you mentioned are hall of famers ... mentioning samuelsson with iginla,alfredsson,jagr is ignorant

 

and since you mentioned it yes his shots arent accurate ,cant skate  ... he just sucks as since hes 36 hes on the decline and injury prone as is bertuzzi ... who also isnt a hall of famer

 

I clearly said that I wasn't saying he would do any of those things, but saying because he is 36 is not a valid argument, all I did was provide evidence to support my claim. Now if you had said he's 36, injury prone, his production is declining etc... then I would have no complaints. Should we put Datsyuk in the bottom 6 when he turns 36? Your initial comment about him being 36 so he shouldn't be in the top 6 was not substantiated, so I wanted to clarify.

Ouch...

 

It's gotta be tuff being 1 of the few guys on the team to take on that role.

 

I can only imagine how challenging that must've been for you; unless you enjoy that aspect of the game - it must get old fast.

 

I moved to play hockey not become a goon which was eventually what I became. Hated my junior coach for that but oh well.

 

Regarding Sammy coming back don't really care. Another player who probably will get injured again sooner rather than later.

So sorry, but sustaining a finger injury due to a puck to the hand does not qualify one as injury-prone.

There's a difference between pessimism and reality.  The chances that a highly touted Swede who weighs *cough* 175 lbs  is going to get rocked in his first NA game are quite high.

I'm guessing Sammy will replace Abby on Datsyuk's line, then Abby replaces Andersson as the 3rd line center

Abdelkader won't be playing center. Eaves will probably drop to the 4th line.

So sorry, but...

 

2/17/2013  Missed 12 games (groin).
3/30/2012  Missed 1 game (lower body injury).
1/05/2012  Missed 5 games (back injury).
12/08/2011  Missed 22 games (groin).
6/15/2011  Missed the last 13 playoff games (left leg injury).
4/17/2011  Missed 1 game (illness).
4/05/2011  Missed 6 games (lower body injury).
12/11/2010  Missed 1 game (mild concussion).
4/04/2010  Missed 8 games (upper body injury).

 

Sure, you could call the broken finger a fluky thing, but it's not like he's been healthy before that.
