Neither Nestrasil nor Nyquist got the puck on net in the shootout. Yeah Jimmy let in two, but he's the reason the Wings even got the chance to lose that shootout.
Agreed. There is no excuse for an NHL player to not get a shot on net in a shootout. None.
OK, but that means nothing when it comes to the shootout, which is what he was referring to. I don't think anyone is clamoring for Abdelkader, Miller, or Andersson in the shootout either.... so why is comparing Nestrasil to them relevant as it relates to the shootout?
Because you said you were wondering why he was even on the team:
What would possess you to put Nes in for the shootout? I have been wondering why he is even on this team honestly. Can't blame the guy for not scoring in the shootout since he didn't play for the last 15+ minutes, but man that was an ugly attempt.
