The Red Wings have recalled Gustav Nyquist from Grand Rapids and reassigned Tomas Tatar to the Griffins, GM Ken Holland said.

Haha... Tatar must be pissed at the Wings, and with good reason. How in the world does he get sent down after how he's played??

Tatar got his tryout for a permanent spot next season & looks like he's locked one up.  I see this as Kenny telling Nyquist that it's his turn to try to do the same.  Can he do that playing on the 3rd line though?  I have my doubts he'll be in the top 6 given past history.

This is absolutely crazy. How do they send this guy Down. Arguably the best forward for this team lately. I don't get it!

I am not someone who believes that tatar or Nyquist is our future. tatar has played well, but what we have seen is his max. That being said, he should still be here. Bringing up Nyquist is ok with me. Not sure why we would be switching them, with so many other stiffs on the team. The only way this makes sense is: trades. they are giving both a taste and have something in mind. One or both getting moved. Otherwise this makes no sense.

Happy to see Nyquist but absurd that Tatar is going down. I understand that tartar struggles defensively. But this team can't score...

This doesn’t make any sense.  So, Babs won’t break up the abysmal 2nd line to not mess with the chemistry of the 3rd line and yet sends the best guy on the 3rd line down for an unknown.  Awesome! 

Nyquist better end up with Dats or somewhere in the top six.

Add in the fact that Nyquist is not a shooter! he is a play maker/pass first guy.

I still think it comes down to wanting to give Nyquist a look with the big club again to see what he can do.  That means either Tatar or Andersson had to get sent down.  You're simply swapping a LW for a LW instead of a center.  Really, I wouldn't be too shocked to see Andersson get sent back down soon in a swap for Ferraro or Sheahan.  It's all about giving some of the young guys a chance to start auditioning for a full-time spot next year a little early.  They've got an extended look at Tatar now, let's bring the next guy in line up to see what he can do.

I'm not trying to pick on you but I think it's a little early to be saying the Tatar that we see now, which has been flying and high skilled, is the max we will get out of a 20 year old. I think another year or two in the NHL he could be an ennis type... Small, fast and skilled.

On another look at things... Do you think there is anyway that we are doing this to one take another look at Nyquist but on second hand show case him for trades. Everyone knows our current log jam at forward and Tatar and Nyquist in the AHL deserving NHL spots, plus jarnkrok coming straight over to the NHL has been a topic for a bit
Maybe this is strictly a move to increase his value???

As I mentioned above, I'm hoping it's more of a try-out for earning a full-time spot next season with the Wings parting ways with some forwards via free agency (Cleary, Miller), buy outs (Sammy), & maybe trade/UFA (Filppula).

Good move Kenny.

 

This will give Tatar time to overripe.   :clap:


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I think that they are getting these guys some time to show their value in the big league. Gearing up for a trade.

 

But I agree, i believe Tatar will be up with the big boys next year. love what hes doing so far.

Holland said they would like to recall Nyquist from the Grand Rapids Griffins at some point this season. Tomas Tatar and Joakim Andersson have played well since being recalled, boosting their depth.

 

We knew Holland wanted to call-up Nyquist, but at the expense of Tatar is rough. I may be in the minority here, but ever since he got RAILED like a week ago or something, he just hasn't looked the same to me. He can still hold on to the puck, and make a decent play, but I think his play overall went down, or started to decline after that huge hit. I wish I remembered who landed it.... I think we simply had to move Tatar back to GR because of our roster space. Tatar is a winger who is easier to move than Andersson who is centering. We need our centers more than our wingers right now.

Up is down. Black is white.

 

This coaching staff with its lineup is so incredibly backwards.

Love/hate move for me as well. Would make more sense to send Andersson down, move Abby to 3rd line C and put Nyquist with Tatar.

But Babcock doesn't seem very fond of Tatar, while he has praised Andersson... so I guess it's no suprise.

The more I think about the worse this is. Tatar has really been one of our best and most consistant players since he came up. If Nyquist can be as good we still haven't IMPROVED which is what we should be looking to do.
