Nyquist taking things in stride, with class

Good for him. He'll be back when cap and roster space allow. If we could send down some of the lesser ones without salary repercussions, we would have.

Unfortunately for him, it's a numbers game.

He'll be back up where he belongs. Mark my words.

Great attitude. Red Wing class personified.

Meanwhile, somewhere, Sammy's getting a boob massage, eating quail eggs, and listening to Robin Thicke.

While counting his stacks of cash

You take that back! Sammy's a Belieber!

This is good to see. I was almost under the impression that he was sick of being stepped over. Stick with it Gus you turn will come sooner than later.

He is handlingbit a lot better than I would. I'd be pissed after the playoffs off last year to be jumped off the roster in favor of cleary Sammy and miller.

Holland is dumb dumb dumb dumb.

I wish we would have beat chicago. Then nyquist would have had his two extra games and he wouldn't be in this situation and we would all be happy... Well maybe, they probably would have traded Tatar if nyquist wasn't waiver eligible still

I personally think the only way we see Gus back up is if there's a real plan in place to move someone, or if someone's done for the year. They're not going to call him up for two games without making sure he'll stick. Poorly planned out, he would be exposed to waivers - I'd like to think Kenny's got a little more sense than that.

He definitely deserves to be on this team, though. It's a shame.

What's pissing me off is the fact, that him and Tatar have done everything this organization asked them to do and even more. They've stepped up in the AHL, helped an injury poised DetroitRedWings roster to reach the playoffs and finally won a memorial cup, meanwhile the roster is filled with over the hill veterans, who clearly do not have a place in the longterm plans.

I am really starting to think, it would have been better if the DetroitRedWings missed the playoffs entirely or at least getting absolutely destroyed by the Ducks or Blackhawks? This late run really has given Kenny a false - and dangerous - sense of how this team does stack up against the elite powerhouses, hence the bringing in/back actions of some veterans.

I also wouldn't blame Nyquist or Tatar for being pissed about the whole situation.

So what do you propose the Wings do with Samuelsson? You're paying him the same amount regardless of if he's in GR or DET. Same for Bertuzzi. Who do you kick and, more importantly, how??

Not that it has any potential impact but I wonder if his agent is shopping him around somehow.

I'm pretty sure that is forbidden.

He knows his GM and coach have lost their marbles.

It gets me to think - what's keeping Nyquist, and Tartar from demanding a trade?

What's so 'special' about being a Red Wing when you're stuck in GR, and guys like Bert/Sammy/Cleary are taking up roster spots?

If I were either of those 2 - I'd be pretty damn pissed off at Holland.

Calder cup but we got the memo! Its a shame what's happening right now. Wish we could see goose and tats with the roster right now.

My major concern is that this permanently harms their development. Nyquist is certainly proven he's ready for the challenge of the NHL and Tatar certainly isn't developing on the bench.

Agreed.

This may be a bad analogy on my part, but you do not hold back a student in school because there's too many children for the classroom - you hold them back a grade because they may not have been capable of showing a level of competency needed for the next level of education...

Limiting ice time, and or keeping these guys down in GR when it's apparent they're ready for the NHL may bite the Wings in the ass later on.

This man should not be in the minors.

This was more than true last year to me.

I thought it was really bad when they sent down Helm to the minors to start the 08-09 season. Turns out it can get worse.
