#2504433 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by T.Low on 01 April 2014 - 07:17 PM

27 goals puts him into top 30 goal snorers, tied with Hossa, one behind Toews and Parise, two behind Kane, etc.of course he's got ten and twenty fewer games than the others mentioned.

The Devils are more in it than I'd thought. Their remaining schedule is a friggin' cakewalk.




Brunner is 3 pts away from tying his lockout shortened Red Wings totals.

And the penalty he drew, the cross check he took to the head didn't slow him at all. No "omg, I got hit in the side of the head, ouch, look everybody, ouch, someone hit me with their stick! "

Glendening is shutting down and pissing off the likes of Crosby and Stamkos in his rookie season - and he wasn't even suppposed to be on the roster. That's huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge. Goals will come. He's certainly had his chances.





Did you guys hear Ken Daniels quoting Babcock on Glenny:

"Other than Nick Lidstrom, Steve Yzerman, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Crosby, Toews, and Bergeron, Luke Gendening is the most competitive player I've ever coached."

The Leggy pass on the Nyquist Tampa goal is nothing to discount: he got the puck, turned with a stride and a half and hit a speeding Nyquist exactly where he needed it, all in an instant. Exactly the kind of pass our young D often struggles with.

While it may not be a difficult pass to make, it is an easy pass to screw up.

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.

My GF had neighbors like that.  Fortunately her apartment complex didn't put up with it very long.  3rd time they had the police there for a noise complaint, the kids were gone.
 
I understand having fun, but the kid needs to grow up a bit or get a nice house in the suburbs.



When I was that age, I was doing similar things. Only I was in my own home town, in my native country. My father was still alive and very available for guidance and perspective. And I wasn't making bank. And I wasn't nearly as high strung to begin with.

It's a strange period in his life, no doubt. But IMO, they're the golden years. I would recommend not growing up too fast. You can never go back.


#2502666 Avery vs. Brodeur

Posted by T.Low on 28 March 2014 - 05:20 PM

haha, yeah. Eff Neal.
 
No matter what you say about him, though, he has the trump card every time:
 
Elisha Cuthbert


Au contraire , mon ami: I've got Jen Murphy, known across our hockey league as The Jenerator. As a defensive pairing, our goalie once informed us that we'd gone 11 games in a row without getting scored upon. Murph is a Class IV white water kayaker. An excellent mountain biker. Restored her own 63 Volvo. Dabbles in triathlons. Is too smart to ever go out with Avery or Phanuef. And most relevantly, is a huge Red Wing fan.

Cuthbert would be fun for a long weekend, but as far as a lifetime goes, I've got the trump card.

I would just like to see Marty's 1100 hp Dodge Charger, couldn't care less about the *** for tat. So many of these great athletes are just not guys I'd ever want to tip a wobbly pop with. At least I could talk cars with Marty. I've tried to find a picture of it, but apparently my Google fu is subpar.

I suppose I could ask Avery why is it that I like my Michigan Hockey hoodie so much, but my Detroit hoodie is way to tight in the shoulders even though it's the same size...what's up with that, Sean?

Just saw this over at Winging it in Motown and got a kick out of it...
 
"Gustav Nyquist once ate three 72 oz. steaks in an hour.  He spent the first 45 minutes having sex with his waitress."


He got blown like a 2goal Red Wing lead?

Sorry...it's a family forum...

Posted by T.Low on 27 March 2014 - 09:35 AM

Nyquist is going to have to step it up. His 2 goals a game isn't getting it done. He needs 4 goals tonight for us to have a chance at winning.

Anyone else think Franzen must be playing with lower body injury? He's lost some jump...


#2493672 3/9 GDT: Red Wings at Rangers

Posted by T.Low on 09 March 2014 - 12:48 PM

These guys are so sickening to listen to. Rags get called for a penalty and they say its the Wings committing it.



I can't believe they didn't call out St Louis on his dive on the Quincey cross tap: he gets tapped, then realizes the opportunity an instant later and jumps into the boards to draw the penalty.

Opinion of him dropping daily...

With the time change and the fact that the Wings are playing in the morning, for heaven's sake, . :sleepy:




And living on the west coast (puck drop 9:30am at Casa de T.Low) and us having friends over into the wee hours last night, I'll be watching this one in my PJs with coffee and pop tarts. :-)
