Moving Nyquist

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

In terms of the Red Wings, Nyquist, along with goaltender Jimmy Howard, forward Thomas Vanek, and defensemen Niklas Kronwall, Nick Jensen and Luke Witkowski are potential free agents.

Not all of them will be moved. There isn’t a market for all of them....

“The market is going to dictate what we’re thinking, what we will do,” Holland said.

Nyquist is, arguably, the Wings’ most intriguing asset heading into the trade deadline.

A playmaking winger having his best statistical season who has been in the playoffs and understands how to play with premier centers, Nyquist would seem to be an attractive commodity.

Wingers such as Artemi Panarin (Columbus), Mark Stone (Ottawa) and Wayne Simmonds (Philadelphia) are big-name players around the NHL who are likely to be dealt.

But there will be a few teams who’ll miss out on those three. And they’re likely to still want to add to their roster.

Do those teams circle back to Holland and make a substantial offer?

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.
