Could you please say something more than "Nyquist" in your post?  Please discuss the topic,  expound on your answer.  


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Wow surprised so many chose DeKeyser. I heard experts saying he's about at the level of Justin Schultz, if not less than Schultz. Of course Danny is more defensively inclined and Justin is more offensively inclined.

I chose Tatar. To me he's already at about the same level as Nyquist and has a higher ceiling to grow. He's also more of a shooter and slightly more physical than goose, two things we need.

To me the top 2 should be Nyquist and Tatar hands down right now

I voted DeKeyser. I have high hopes for both Nyquist and Tatar as well. 

 

The combination of speed, puck-moving ability and defensive positioning DeKeyser has shown already is unbelievable though. You don't see many d-men in this league that can excel in all of those areas.

I chose Gus because he has all the skills....just needs to bulk up a bit. He is very tenacious and I love his style of play. Kinda reminds me of when Z came in.....which says a lot since Hank is my favorite player. DD is going to awesome as well. I'm excited about our young guys....it's been such a pleasant surprise in the playoff run we have had!

Nyquist and Tatar are future top 6ers. Not depth. Andersson is depth.

Dekeyser. Can't remember the last team that won a cup that don't have a good defense group and good young defenseman are very hard to get.

I chose Nyquist for reasons stated above. But I also like Anderson. Like axe said he us depth. A bottom 6 guy. But I like what he brings to the bottom 6. Him Brunner and nyquest have been awesome to watch.

I don't know who to choose. Nyquist makes me say "wow" sometimes, DeKeyser's breakout passes make me say "wow" and he showed good poise on defense. Tatar is grittier than I thought he would be and I thought he belonged in the lineup, and Andersson gives you all you could ask for on the bottom six and showed that he earned a spot even when Helm comes back. I'd say they're all beneficial.

 

Gun to my head I think I'd choose DeKeyser simply because defense matters most to me and he's the only other defenseman I can think of that would replace Ericsson's spot, but Ericsson's playing so damn good this season. I think at some point next season DD will secure the #4 spot.

I voted for Dekeyser and Gus. After watching Frk at the Memorial Cup he looks like he could be great!

I voted DeKeyser because defense wins you championships.  I believe Ryan Sproul will make an impact when he gets up in the NHL.

Shultz is not surrounded by leadership like dekeyser is. Thats a very big difference maker

I hope so.

 

I always wanted Lebda to be the next Mathieu Dandenault, but that never worked out.  


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

I'd take DeKeyser over Schultz any day.  DD knows how to play D.  Shultz is another Green from Washington.  Good on offense, can't play D to save his life.   

 

I chose DeKeyser cause I see him running our blueline for the next 15-20 years.  Nyquist will hopefully lead the offensive charge for a good portion of the next 15 years, but building from a goal out mentality, I chose DeKeyser.  I'd like Sproul and Ouellet to be right there beside him as well.

 

Either way, the future is bright.

I'd say DeKeyser is already their #3 defenseman and could pass Ericsson next year.
