Well depending on the trade I still would've. To me everyone is tradable. But we as fans also don't see the behind the scenes stuff. They had him improve and work on things and he did.

I'm glad we didn't trade him...but I'm a firm believer in trading prospects for proven players in the RIGHT trade.

Like Legwand?

I guess you missed the part about THE RIGHT TRADE.

I like legwand but jarnkrok wasn't the proper prospect to be traded.

Guys, he prefers Gus over Gustav...
What the hell rhymes with Gus????

Oh well. Goose is loose!

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

The goal against Tampa was epic. Forsberg-esque. Skill, strength, determination.

Then we miss the playoffs. Anderson was and could not be our #1 center.

Yeah, aside from a poor stretch where all of our veterans struggled, Legwand has been really solid, if not great for us.  He came in at a crucial moment, performed well and helped this team survive that first week after the trade deadline.  

 

But back onto the topic of Nyquist, he's much more dynamic than I first anticipated.  The goals he scores are all different kinds. Workhorse goals like the one last night, goal scorer's snipe shots, crashing the net, he's a threat at any point in the offensive zone it seems like.

 

Was he like that in the AHL?  Should I be so surprised?  I know he changed his game to be more of a scorer in the NHL, but I'm still surprised by the way he's scoring them.

Teams are having a difficult time shutting him down cause he's all over the place. He doesn't do the same thing every time, and he can literally score from anywhere. It quite impressive actually

After the Calder Cup run and last night, Gudas is already sick of Nyquist. He's thinking, "Crap, this is what I've got to look forward to for the rest of my career?"

Speaking of Gudas and last night, we really do need a (younger) Bertuzzi type on his line. Guys are going to run Gus and try to make his life hell.

Yea Gudas, while great and physical, could become hated pretty much all over the league (or at least in Detroit) if he keeps flying those elbows around.

The top search at hockeydb.com?   Gustav Nyquist.   In 1976 the Tigers had the Bird....today the Wings have the Goose

As the rest of the hockey world says: "Who the hell is this Nyquist guy and why is he scoring on us?"

My absolute favorite part of that Nyquist goal was when Mickey says "Oh My.........Oh My God"  :notworthy:

Nyquist named second star of the month, although I think it should be first, considering all our stars are injured and no one else is scoring (hence the lack of assists) he is working his tail off every game and being rewarded for it, but I digress. Good to see the nhl acknowledged what he has done lately, congrats goose!!
