In Red Wings Land
“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.”
You think we can get a 2nd round pick for Gus Nyquist? I think I’d be happy with that. It’s pretty much a guarantee that the Red Wings will trade him before the deadline, so I’d love for Nyquist to go on a nice scoring streak around January or so and increase his value!
Around the League
One last item to keep an eye on: The Detroit Red Wings may be in a full-blown rebuild, but they are making the most of it. Dennis Cholowski – yes, 20-year-old rookie Dennis Cholowski – is eating up a ton of minutes for the Red Wings.
It was expected that the team would look for solutions as they manage out the minutes of veterans like Trevor Daley and Niklas Kronwall. But I certainly didn’t see the Red Wings going this young, this fast on the back end. It’s definitely something to continue monitoring as the season progresses.
Cholowski for Calder.
