Is it really that hard to compare Nyquist to Hall?
Even last season Nyquist had 1 more goal than Hall, in 20 less games. Hall had more assists because he has more goal scorer's around him than Nyquist does. Thus far this season, Nyquist has 6 more goals and 1 more point than Hall. I would say if Nyquist was a one year wonder, you'd have an argument that he is nowhere as good as Hall, but if Nyquist would have played 75 games last season (as much as Hall) he would have had 63 points to Hall's 80, again due to the more talent around him in EDM. Plus Hall in a bonafide top line player while Nyquist went from line 3 to line 1 back to line 3 day in and day out. Am I saying that right now Nyquist is just as dynamic or a game changer as Hall is....maybe not, but thus far in his short career, Nyquist is proving that he is another later round gem that is hanging tough with high draft picks.
and you guys know me, I am a diehard North American supporter. I am defending Nyquist over Hall, not because he is a Red Wing, but because he is keeping pace with a 1st overall draft pick and doesn't show any signs of slowing down.
