Gustav Nyquist Prepared For The Trade Talk

11/01/2018 at 1:21pm EDT

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The better Nyquist, an unrestricted free agent after this season, plays, the more it will benefit what the Wings are trying to do long-term. The last two seasons have seen pending unrestricted free agents traded at the deadline for future assets – for example, 2017’s Brendan Smith trade included a 2018 second-round pick (Jonatan Berggren) and 2018’s Tomas Tatar trade included a 2018 first-round pick (Joe Veleno), among other assets acquired.

Nyquist, 29, should appeal to a contender because he flirted with the 30-goal mark when he was playing with Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk in the prime of their careers (2013-15). Nyquist has a no-trade clause, but a player can be moved if he agrees to waive that.

“It’s a business and that’s part of the game,” Nyquist said. “I’m sure my name will pop up. It will be a little bit new situation for me because this is my last year of the contract. It’s different, but it’s nothing I’ve thought about. Probably more as I get closer to the deadline. We’ll see.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
