I think we will see Andersson moved next if we can't make the cap work - despite Cleary having zero on-ice contribution to the team and being an old dog with few good days left compared to Andersson. Ideally we would waive Cleary to make it work with Nyquist up.
 
What I hope is that Nyquist doesn't get just one game and if he doesn't blow up they send him back down. I could see that happening. 


We shouldn't get our hopes up. We will be in a real bad situation of he plays two games. We can hope Holland finally accepts it, but there will be pressure to hold off losing players for nothing by waiving them.

I agree about Andersson, though. I'm not sure he'd get claimed if Eaves and Tootoo didn't, and we do have other options at center. Emmerton, Glendening, etc.

Especially seeing as how the KIDS are the reason we damn near took the hawks out last year in the playoffs.

 

Yeah.  It's possible that you might be exaggerating the impact the 'kids' had during the hawks series....a tad.

Well, wasn't all the speculation that Gus was going to get the call in about a month anyway because of the cap savings?  Assuming that is true, and that DD is out for at least that length, that means they can call up Gus and keep him up permanently without making any other moves?  That makes sense in my head at least.

The Red Wings planned on recalling Nyquist on Thursday. Putting defenseman Danny DeKeyser (separated left shoulder, 3-to-6 weeks) on long-term injured reserve clears enough salary-cap space.

However, an unspecified injury to defenseman Kyle Quincey could cancel that plan. If Quincey, who didn't practice Wednesday due to "bumps and bruises,'' can't play, then the Red Wings would need to use their available cap space to recall a defenseman.

 

 

And just like that I wish Kyle Quincey would just go the f*** away. He ruins literally everything with this club.

Bumps and bruises, huh? Nyquist is probably beyond frustrated at this point.

An easy solution would be to waive an underachiever and call Nyquist AND a defenseman up.

If they screw with him and don't call him up I hope he says either call me up or trade me. Send a message to holland

Can't we just waive Quincey? I don't care that he cost us a first rounder, to me it's a sunk cost and we won't recoup the value. Instead just let him go.

I do.  Babcock basically said as much today.  He's an emergency call up, so it doesn't affect his 2 game limit. Babcock essentially said Nyquist has to the blow the roof off the joint to ensure he stays in the lineup.  Hard to imagine they won't send him down if they went to the trouble to make him an emergency call-up so they wouldn't be forced to keep him up.

 that's a tall order for a medium sized Swede... but he could do it.  I wonder what the issue is with the rest of them, that bringing up the best player from GR is supposed to be motivating and wake them up?   Personally, much as I love them all (well, most of them), I don't see a leader who demands the best of himself -- and absolutely expects the rest of his team mates to play up to his standard.  Haven't had that in a while, actualy....

Even if he scored a hat trick they'd almost certainly send him down, painful as that would be.  I'm not totally clear on all the implications but I think Nyquist losing his eligibility would handcuff the roster even more than it already is.

How much cap relief would the wings get from waiving cleary?
