#2379958 Nyquist, Tatar, dekeyser

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 03 April 2013 - 09:16 PM

Like when he gave Brunner a beauty of a pass last game and helped him snap a 16 game goal drought.  I certainly like that pair.


Exactly! Throw those two with pavel, and let Z play with mule and fil!

You better hope Smith and Lashoff don't get caught in a bad matchup.  A dangerous top line would tear them apart.  Also, Samuelsson should play over Nyquist.  I know we're all high on him here, but he doesn't bring any hustle to the lineup and he hasn't found his scoring touch in the NHL yet.  Sammy, for all his flaws, at least generates some offense.  And there's a strong argument to be made that Bertuzzi's hands are worth quite a bit on chaotic playoff hockey.


Nyquist doesn't bring any hustle?? He's always skating hard and ill take him 7 days a week on twice on Sunday over Sammy.

He has more speed, skill, and hockey IQ. He may be a little weaker, but his compete level is way better than Sammy

Well if we make the playoffs,  and everyone is healthy, I would go with this line up....
 
Filppula - Zetterberg - Brunner
 
Franzen - Datsyuk - Nyquist
 
Abdelkader - Helm - Tatar
 
Miller - Andersson - Tootoo
 
Scratched
Bertuzzi
Emmerton
Eaves
Samuelsson
Cleary
 
Kronwall - Ericsson
 
Kindl - DeKeyser
 
Smith - Lashoff
 
Scratched
White
Quincey
Colaiacovo
 
Howard 
Gustavsson


My ideal lines would be this, but I'd switch z and pavs. Would put Bert in for miller. Also put Quincey in for lashoff.

If we're not trying to do anything in the playoffs, what good is this season other than giving our kids some experience for next season?

Filppula-Zetterberg-Brunner
Franzen-Datsyuk-Tatar
Nyquist-Andersson/Helm-Miller
Abdelkader-Emmerton-Tootoo

Kronwall-Ericsson
Quincey/Cola-Smith
Dekeyser-Kindl/Lashoff

Make it so Kenny/Babcock.


If we had Nyq and Tatar playing quality minutes all year we probably wouldn't even need a top 6 forward


#2379583 Nyquist, Tatar, dekeyser

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 03 April 2013 - 02:27 PM

Tats, nyquist, and brunner should be in the top 6. I don't care if there not big. I will take skill over a plug with size


#2379547 Nyquist, Tatar, dekeyser

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 03 April 2013 - 02:11 PM

The better all be in the lineup the rest of the way. Holland you don't wanna give up picks, or prospects for top 6 talent? Well you better start getting young guys quality minutes.

I still don't understand why we didn't unload white

Everyone gets better but us. How could he not go for gabby? Awful Kenny you should be fired. Most mad I've ever been with him


#2379421 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 03 April 2013 - 01:40 PM

Gabby for brassard, Moore, and Dorsett. Kenny you couldn't put in an offer! F*** he's terrible

Gabby could be going to Columbus.

If this isn't for a high price I'm gonna be pissed

i feel everyones pain but guys come on did you honestly think he was going to do anything this is the same team he likes them not going to do anything different his convienced that bert helm and sammy are going help this team pole jump into the PO


Ya meanwhile none of them can stay healthy. Sammy is hurt either before his first game coming back, or 10 minutes in. Worst signing ever!!!

Well since we're not gonna do anything Kenny better play the right f****** players in the right spot. Sick and tired of see dusters in the top6. Get Tatar, nyquist, and Danny d in the lineup now!


#2378789 An interesting point about our apparent deadline strategy

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 02 April 2013 - 03:49 PM

If I were Datsyuk, I'd walk into Kenny's office and demand a trade off this sinking ship.  But, Pav would never do that.  He'll just deke Kenny out and go back to work.  He'll carry this whole organization by himself, if he has to.  That's just so unfair to him.


Pav is my favorite player of all time. He deserves to have someone to play with. The guy is still so dominant. Get him someone really good to play with and who knows maybe he re-signs for a couple more years.

I'd rather lose a first and a good prospect for a star player plus two more years of pav playing with that star player


#2378757 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Here's the thing I don't understand about Kenny's philosophy.  He doesn't want to do something and get worse, but he also doesn't realize that by doing nothing and getting older, you are getting worse.  Each year he doesn't do anything, our already aging core gets a year older.  And there's nothing on the horizon to suggest that we've got a new core in the making.  Even our highly touted prospects aren't the next great wave or Red Wings.  The next wave would have been guys Abby, Helm, Kindl, and Ericsson's age, and if that's our new core then watch out. 
 
If he continues to do nothing and hopes that internal growth will fix these problems, he's likely to lose Datsyuk and Flip, while Z, Kronwall, and Franzen decline and there will be NOBODY there to pick up that slack. 
 
Unless, of course, you think Nyquist and Tatar are the answer.  I don't. 


I totally agree. And it's not like he doesn't trade and does all his business on July 1st. He does nothing. This has been the exact same team for 4 years, except we are older and have lost 3 top 4 d-men, one being a HOF'er, other being great d-man, and the other being a rock. What have we brought in? Nothing!

I'm so sick of holland doing nothing. He's wasting the last few years of a legendary career in pavel datsyuk, just like he did with lids.

Worst part is that he refuses to play young players that are ready to produce


#2378731 Holland: "We don't need depth...Need a top guy"

Posted by Nyquistfan14 on 02 April 2013 - 02:22 PM

 
I agree with some people here.  This isn't a bad thing.  No one is trading their elite players away, and as Holland said, we are in need of top guys.  Jagr and Bouwmeester are not top guys.


Yep. So go get eriikson/ gaborik/ vanek/ pomonville
