#2504242 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

My absolute favorite part of that Nyquist goal was when Mickey says "Oh My.........Oh My God"  :notworthy:

Howard really had no chance on that at all. Bounced off Kronner's shin, into the ice and back up. No chance.

Looks like Dats, Abby and Jurco are all back on the ice today.  :scared:

I like this. And hopefully we have Datsyuk for the last few games

With the way Goose has been playing we might not need him until the playoffs.

Just got home. Holy Hell. Nyquist told the team to get on his back and he is carrying us to the damn playoffs.

I agree in keeping that new kid line together, they always seem to make things happen. I want so badly to love glendening but him on the same line as abs might be a line that will rarely score.

 

We aren't putting them on the ice to score. We would already have three scoring lines. They are there to shut down people and kill penalties.  A line of Abelkader,Helm,Glendening would be as close as we could currently get to the "Grind Line" of old.

Future captain right here folks. Gotta be him or Dekeyser once Z is gone. Goose is willing this to team to victory night in and night out.

Beauty of a pass by Sheahan. Dude has surpassed my expectations for him BY FAR.

I'll try and update this daily with the latest projections from Sports Club Stats.

 

http://www.sportsclu...ic/Detroit.html

 

Today's (3/20/14) chance: 44.8%

 

What we need tonight (all %ages assume regulation win/loss) (red is status with undesired outcome):

Wings win - +10.5%                    (-10.2)

Kings win (WSH loss) - +1.4%     (-1.8)

Canadiens win (CLB) - +1.5%     (-1.3)

Minnesota win (NJD) - +1.6%      (-1.7)

Dallas win (PHI) - +1.2%              (-0.7)

Lightning win (OTT) - +0.3%        (-0.4)

 

I could see all of those things happening tonight, which means they won't. We could potentially go from 44.8% to 61.3% tonight. Or you know, down to like 30%...

Find ways to win, every point is huge right now and that is the kind of game that could fire up a win streak.

 

Nyquist quickly becoming a leader with Datsyuk and Zetterberg out.

 

100% agree. Very easy to see that the captain has rubbed off on him in a huge way. He is like a mini Z out there. I think one part of his game that goes unnoticed is how rarely he takes penalties. Kid only has 8 penalty minutes in 43 games. 

What is it now like 25 points in 20 games? The kid is doing everything he can to carry this team down the stretch.

Smith playing LW and Abby out for two weeks with a laceration. Wtf. The hockey gods are making us pay for the playoff streak. We must've struck a deal with the devil many many years ago.

 

I'd say screw the playoffs and bring up the kids but the kids are already up! Lol.

 

If we win tonight or even tie it will be nothing short of a miracle. REALLY need Franzen/Nyq/Tatar to step up tonight. Grab the bull by the horns and just hang on as long as you can boys. 

 

EDIT: If Bert can't go tonight our 4th line will most likely be...

 

Smith-Emmerton-Ferraro.   :scared:

Good lord this lineup is laughable. Who would've thought at the beginning of the season we could be playing a 3rd and 4th line of

 

Pulk-Glendening-Miller

Smith-Emmerton-Ferraro 

 

That is... atrocious. I would like to see Smith play wing tonight. Just for fun, because really how much worse can it get? Maybe Mantha's team will crap the bed in the playoffs and we can get him in for a few games of experience before the season is over. 

 

 

Ferraro will be the 7th Griffin to make his NHL debut this season according to the Wings website. 




#2495403 3/14 GDT : Edmonton Oilers 1 at Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Posted by DannyD on 14 March 2014 - 11:19 PM

The kid definitely thinks shoot first. He had probably five shot attempts, but maybe three made on net. Two of them were absolute howitzers during a powerplay. His highlight of the night however was an open ice hip heck against David Perron, I believe. Considering his limited ice time, he made his presence felt.

Thanks! Hopefully he can solidify a spot in the lineup even when Jurco comes back.
