dat's sick, I agree that Jurco should be the first to be sent down. I'm not just looking at the fact that he is waiver exempt either. I said before this season even started that I wanted to see Jurco start the season in Grand Rapids. He is going to be a great player, but as of right now there are still a lot of holes in his game and inconsistency is an issue. I'd love to see him sent down and spend the rest of the season ripping up the minors. It would go a long way in his development in my opinion...

And yes, Franzen is what he is, no one is expecting much more from him, but what he is, is a threat every single night. You said yourself and we all know that he is capable of scoring multiple goals any game, those are the types of players that the opposition need to match up against. No, he doesn't give it 110% every single night but you never know when is going to explode and take over a game. He is worth much more than his cap hit, and it's really time for you to realize this. You make him out to be this anchor, when he really is part of the engine.

Leftwinger, "if you want to get technical", Nestrasil has played 9 games in the NHL and has one assist and is a -1. After Nyquist's first 9 NHL games he had 4 assists and was a +2, and then went on to get another assist in each of his next 3 games. So no, 7 points (all assists) through 12 games, is hardly lighting the league on fire, but it is actually really good for a player just entering the league. Nyquist was also a year younger than Nestrasil when they entered the league...


Nestrasil is nowhere near the player Nyquist is, so there is no need to compare them.


Also, myself like much of the hockey world, probably use the word "elite" loosely. No he is not going to be a Crosby, Malkin, or Stamkos, but I consider elite players to be much more than the top 3 in the league. I consider Zetterberg an elite player, and yes, I do think he could one day be as good as Zetterberg. You don't have to agree, but that's the type of potential I think Nyquist has.

I don't see Nestrasil as ever being more than a third / forth line player in this league. However, my intention was not to bash Nestrasil, but to state that he should not be compared to either Franzen or Nyquist. He's not even close to the potential of those two, in my opinion.

You cannot be seriously comparing Nestrasil to Nyquist? Really? Nestrasil is a border line NHL player while Nyquist is a future elite NHL player... Also Nyquist had 2 goals in his first game last season and 9 points in 16 games before January. So if by, "not doing too much" you meant, not being a top 5 player in the entire league like he was from January on, you're right, he didn't do much...
