With these prices the wings could get some good picks/prospects for White or Flip!  White for a 2nd once we sign Dekeyser?! Fingers crossed!


In Topic: Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

I get calling nyquist up finally, but why send tartar down?

In Topic: Gus Nyquist...

26 February 2013 - 12:10 PM

While Nyquist is a little bit on the small size, I just don't understand why the Wings aren't giving him a more prominent role.  Anyone who has watched him play in Grand Rapids can tell that he is by far the best player on that team.  Granted I know its not the NHL, but I'm from Grand Rapids and have been to tons of Griffins games the past 2 years and he is always making plays, creating turnovers, scoring big goals, etc.  He carried the line of him, tatar, and andersson on most nights...the reason Tatar and Andersson have been having their best years when in GR. 

 

Now while I like Tatar and Andersson and what they bring to the Wings, it seems like Gus should be up instead.  Only reason I can think of as to why they are keeping him in the minors is because of contract reasons.  The Wings need all the cap space they can get and without Nyquist on the big club proving what he can do they wouldn't have any reason to have to pay him big bucks next year.  They can easily sign him to a couple year deal worth a million or so instead.  This is just my theory, but I have no other explanation as to why he isn't up and cleary and abby remain on the 2nd line instead of someone like him filling in with Dats.
