Detroit Red Wing Gustav Nyquist Gustav Nyquist will return home to the complete pandora bracelets for sale Detroit Red Wings for Thursday night's game and it's none too soon.
The Wings have lost the last seven games, and have been spiraling downward in the month of November. Nyquist had been in Grand Rapids, with the Griffins (The AHL Red Wing affiliate) for the first 17 games of their schedule. The last we saw of him he had been instrumental in the victory over the Anaheim Ducks and the near victory over the heavily favored Chicago Blackhawks the eventual Champions in the 2013 Stanley Cup finals.Nyquist was a welcome fresh face. He had pizzazz, verve, excitement was a strong skater with artistic moves and the ability to quickly change directions; a man who played with intelligence. He could score too. A potential fan favorite. The 24 year old transplanted Swede had played only 18 games with the Wings during the end of the 2012 2013 season.The playoffs showed that Nyquist had the skills of a sniper, performing under pressure, with poise, against elite opponents. He was highly lauded for his exploits and why not? What more could you ever want in a player, going forward, with the 2013 2014 campaign?Red Wing General Manager Ken Holland obviously had different thoughts. The "Holland Plan" believed in the mixing of veterans and younger players with a premium on veterans. But when you're fortunate enough to have a less experiencecd player one that has the smarts and calm of a 10 year veteran, coupled with speed, dynamism and scoring ability you do not disregard such a gift.Post playoffs, Holland (lower right) went on buy pandora beads online to sign free agents Daniel Alfredsson and Steven Weiss. Veteran Wing Dan Cleary, 35, also a free agent, appeared to have signed with Philadelphia but he re signed with Detroit for less money. Hockey's salary cap was beginning to close in on Red Wings, as the summer moved on. Nyquist was the only current Red Wing forward who could "go down" without being subject to being on the waiver list where any NHL could nab him for free.The waiver rules are very complicated, but it all focuses on national Hockey league seniority. If Nyquist had played two more NHL games he would not be eligible to be sent down and not available for any NHL team to snag him. He was caught in a highly unusual vise grip. There cannot be many precedents for this in the 10 year salary cap era. Those two games made all the difference in Nyquist's world.There was no money left on the team salary cap. Why would Ken Holland send Nyquist to Grand Rapids, even though he had outplayed his competition a move in violation of basic human fairness? Because he could so he did, and Mr. Holland held on to that dreadful "two game loophole" like a ferocious pitbull's teeth attached to the leg of a hapless player's cost of pandora charms hockey pants.It was a very tough thing for him to swallowNyquist had a strong preseason but it wouldn't matter. He would not stand on the ice at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena, in the home opening game, as his name was being announced a proud, exciting moment for any player especially an emerging one who had "arrived" and was validated via the Stanley Cup playoffs. The left winger began biding his time, biting his lip and building his case albeit in Grand Rapids, a place he knows only too well.He did an exemplary job at Grand Rapids probably better than any other player there. As a political pawn, he had to watch other players from the Griffins travel to Detroit to temporarily assist the Red Wings when roster players were out, due to injuries.This procession included Xavier Ouellet, Adam Almquist, Luke Glendening and even Landon Ferraro less accomplished players than him, to be certain.Meanwhile, the Red Wings hit a downturn. In November, seemingly they were losing every game with practically every one being a one goal loss. They lose in regulation, but more often it's in overtime or in shoot outs. It matters not. The Wings are in dire need of someone anyone who can score goals. He'll be on the shelf for a few weeks. A most unfortunate occurrence, but Ken Holland and Mike Babcock are not going to miss this chance to bolster their eroding reputations. The door has slightly opened and a crack of sunlight shines thru it's enough for an escape.Nyquist is a free man The chains come offSuddenly, November 20, Gustav Nyquist is heading home, to Detroit. Dan DeKeyser's salary does not count vs the salary cap while he's on the pandora deals sale injured list. There is enough money to accommodate a spot for Nyquist. (Management will eliminate a player before DeKeyser comes back.)The Holland Plan wasn't working, but what if it had and had worked to perfection? In a best case scenario, Cleary and other veterans, along with the new free agents, would have provided the goals that were needed. Would Gustav Nyquist ever have played those two games this year eliminating captivity and opening Pandora's box?A travesty from the beginningAfter watching and listening to Red Wing games, and reading about them for 50 years, this episode goes down as one of the biggest travesties; an invisible black mark on the resumes of Ken Holland and Mike Babcock (pictured, right.). It was diametrically opposed to important team concepts such as goodwill and trust. Those took a backseat to misguided expediency in a business owned by Mike Ilitch, who is known for loyalty, and whose enterprises all foster family atmospheres for employees.Gustav Nyquist lost 26% of this NHL hockey season through zero fault or inability of his own. Things like this can cause player agents to recommend departure for greener pastures when free agency occurs. (Three years from now.)Nyquist quietly awaits his first NHL game of the season tonight, and is literally, fifth page news today, Thursday, November 21. Detroit sports is all abuzz about the trading of Tiger Prince Fielder. It won't matter a bit to Gustav Nyquist.
For him it will be unbridled joy. His bondage to the two remaining games will soon be in the rear view mirror. It will be a never ending run with the team of a gloried past.
