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.
