#2325723 Nyquist vs. Brunner

Posted by wingfan91 on 17 August 2012 - 05:18 PM

Brunner has the potential with that filthy wrister to put up 25+ goals this season if he adjusts well and plays on the 1st or 2nd with Pav or Hank. Nyquist, in my opinion, is, as you said, a puck possession player. He is almost unsettlingly calm with the puck in traffic for a kid who's played 18 NHL games. He has that Datsyuk sense where he's able to hold on to the puck just long enough for someone to get free. I could definitely see Nyquist putting up 60(12-18 goals/42-48 assists) points this season if he plays mostly top six minutes, his chemistry with Pav was superb for a rookie, unfortunately he's not shoot first.

#2325338 12-13 Biggest Surprise

I think the biggest surprise this year will be Jarnkrok making the team out of training camp. In all reality, I see a Nyquist type situation where he plays like a champ in the pre season, but we have no open roster spot because bert, cleary, and emmerton are much more "valuable" to the team
