7 pts in 16g. BTW, Nyqvist has 6 in 14. His teammates love him. 2nd on the team in hits. Stands up for his teammates which has rubbed off on others. Great in the locker room and with the young players. That type of game is needed far more than Nyqvist who would play 3rd line here. Boston has a similarly productive player in the slot already that they are looking to move as he is expendable.
This a bad trade in terms of value and a terrible trade in terms of logistics. Nyqvist is not a need, giving up a 1st and someone who plays a style game they do need considering it’s a fairly soft team in general for something they don’t need is lunacy.
Has he lost a step, absolutely. But unlike last year, he’s healthy, settled into his role, and has a coach that lets him go play his game. Made a huge difference.
His contract while an overpayment is no longer problematic. As it is an expiring deal and he is giving them the kind of game they expected when they acquired him they are not looking to move him.
When everyone is healthy they are under the cap with Reilly, Wags, Stralman in the AHL. They don’t have to dump any cap. Would be a luxury to move some, primarily Reilly.</div></div>
I can see that being right is very important to you. Yes, you were right. I was wrong. I had already conceded that I made an incorrect assumption and that the 1st round pick was a high ask.
Though I don't watch many Boston games, my personal opinion after watching Foligno for many years in Columbus is that he is inconsistent, and the pros don't outweigh the cons. I don't think his pace through 14 games will continue based on his age and history, but I guess we'll see. I did misjudge the value of the trade, and I'm sorry it was so offensive to you.
