In Red Wings Land

Krupa: Gustav Nyquist wants to be playmaker in a Red ings’ turnaround | The Detroit News

It is more likely he will be approached by the Red Wings over the next six weeks to wave his no trade clause. The trade deadline is 3 p.m., Monday, Feb. 25.

Of any ongoing negotiations, Nyquist said, “not as of now.”

“So, obviously, I know my situation,” he said.

“We’ll see what happens.

“It’s a business,” he said. “We’ll see what happens, here, in the near future.”

Hey, if Gus Nyquist wants to be a part of the Red Wings rebuild, that’s cool with me, but he’s going to have to do it by returning to Detroit in free agency this offseason after a trade. Ken Holland absolutely needs to move Nyquist at the deadline. I think that’s painfully obvious to everyone involved in this situation. The NTC might impact the potential suitors and the assets that come back to the Wings, but it’s better than nothing.
