    Just checked some of his contract comparables. Found Adam Henrique, JT Miller and Tomas Tatar.

    That would push his extension in 5.5M - 5.75M ballpark.

    After season Nyquist is UFA and could probably be dealt at the deadline.

    He looked pretty good on zone-entry advanced stats, that I would like to trade him and them try to get him back.

    The Wings are deep at wing, with at least 6 players either currently on the team or in the system that are or projected to be as good or better than Nyquist. Trade him and never look back.

    Trade him if he'll waive and let him move on. Gustav Nyquist should not be in this team's future plans.

    Trade him this season for sure. It is really far out there to predict whether or not I would be interested in Nyquist next summer though. A lot could play into that. I would play Nyquist with Rasmussen though, he likes space creators and Ras is good at that like Franzen was.

    I've always really liked Nyquist and was big on him when he was a prospect. So I wouldn't have any issue bringing him back next summer. But the DRW definitely should be trying to move him by the deadline. If they were to consider bringing him back, I'd like to see it in the range of $4.75-$5M AAV

    Priority 1 should be trading him for futures. After that I am definitely not opposed to bringing him back.

    Trade him for futures. I like Gus and would consider resigning him but only if we're able move to move one of our bad contracts first.

    Well I think for sure you have to trade him if the value is there. Like TZE said though - you're going to have to re-evaluate after that.

    Just looking at our roster next season in terms of wingers (forgive me if I'm missing someone):
    Mantha
    Bertuzzi
    Nyquist (not under contract)
    Abdelkader
    Zadina
    Athanasiou (trade bait?)
    Shvechnikov (who knows)
    Helm (hopefully gone)
    Vanek (not under contract)
    Rasmussen (hopefully down the middle)

    There's talent there, but still lots of unknowns. I think we should definitely put our priorities at other positions right now.

    it will be ok if they bring him or Tatar for much less money . Have Mrazek for 1 mil will be great especially if NHL get rid of trapezoid behind net . They are good players , just like support to core

    Pack his bags, and make sure it's a one way ticket.

    Definitely need to trade him. Should be able to fetch at least a second rounder if he’ll waive.

    It's full NTC, but I quarantee he would be interested going in to a Contender, if and when we suck.

    I've seen him all the time at LA Kings 2nd line, feeding Jeff Carter from the wing...

    Mantha - X - Zadina
    Rasmussen - X - Nyquist
    Bertuzzi - X - Svechnikov
    Helm - X - Abdelkader

    Athanasiou goes in the middle. Vanek leaves.

    You can trade somebody for a defenceman, and Nyquist plugs that hole.

    Why are the Wings extending another winger that will be 30 in a few weeks to a contract that will almost certainly end up being at least four years?

    Trade him and replace him with a prospect. The Wings don't need any more wingers or long term contracts.

    I concur, with the only caveat being $4.5-$4.75M max & 2-4 yrs term max. No NTC/NMC, or very limited NTC after 1st 2yrs.

    He'll probably be able to fetch $5M+ & 4-5 yrs term as UFA, but I'd stick to my terms & $ if I were KH...or he can walk.

    2019:
    Established Top 9 wingers:

    Mantha
    Bert
    ----------
    *AA..if he doesn't cut it as #3c, or isn't traded for Dman/Dman prospect

    Unknowns as of today:

    Zadina...likely 1st/2nd line W by 2019 or sooner
    Raz...likely 2nd/3rd W or #3C line by 2019 or sooner
    Svech...likely 2nd/3rd line W by 2019 or sooner

    In the system:
    Berggren
    ?

    (Abby/Helm)-fill-ins if needed

    Unless our current group of prospects are all better/further along than we realize losing Z, Nyquist and Vanek within the next 7-12 months will create a massive talent vacuum. From a fan perspective the games will be much more dull but more importantly the team will lack veteran skill.

    Lastly, we all know the organizational philosophy. Unless Holland plans to get aggressive for one or two premier UFAs I'd say there is a strong chance Nyquist is brought back.

    A middle-six winger on the wrong side of his prime...

    Will we give him a 5-year deal or 6?

    It's time to move on from Nyquist, let the young kids take over. Trade him.
