Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

If he can get stronger on the puck along the boards and down low (like Zetterberg strong), he could be a serious threat. Not that he isn't now, but I think that could be the one thing that puts him over the top.

Then we'd have like Z, and younger faster Z. And I like the sounds of that.

They're both 33, wouldn't be surprised if it's Nyquist.

Exactly. They will probably both be leaving the league around the same time. Plus with the way the Wings work I don't envision them having a "stopgap" captain. I think if Kronner is on his last season or two when Z hangs 'em up then they go with a younger guy who can grow with the team and be around for a long time.

This game might have been the most impressive Gus has played. He was actually a dominant player out there, and we were playing one of the top teams in the league.

Setting up the OT goal by knocking Malkin down and creating a turnover is just epic.

I'm beginning to think the Wings may just pull this off. Datsyuk should be back in what, five or six more games? Helm should come back next week. Just hang on, guys, the cavalry is coming.

Last I saw is that Helm might be back as soon as Saturday. Just hope that the rest of the roster doesn't relax too much if/when players start to come back.

I'm honestly pretty concerned that Datsyuk is done for the season. His knee has been bad since December and he has played what, 5 games for the Wings in that time? I don't think three weeks will fix his problem, but lets hope I'm mistaken and Datsyuk can suit up for a run.

That would really help us with a home and home against the Wild.

I just can't wait for Helm or Weiss anymore, if they come back, great, if not then we'll just play the guys that are on the team now. Checking when our injured players will be back has started to piss me off.

No doubt. I just so badly want Helm to stay healthy. He's my favorite player behind Z and Dats, so I'd love to watch him play more often. He was so close to being fully healthy and then got sent awkwardly into the boards head first and there goes that comeback...

There was points during the game where he looked like Z out there, just hanging onto the puck in the offensive zone like something fierce.
