Gustav Nyquist was a skilled, dynamic player for the Detroit Red Wings in last year's Stanley Cup playoffs. Incredibly, his reward from Ken Holland and management, was to be sent back to minor league affiliate, Grand Rapids Griffins. Questionable judgment, highly questionable ethics, and an obvious lack of basic fairness transpired here. In the end, Nyquist prevailed - but the road he travelled was one that should not be repeated by any young player.
Sam Rice, a contemporary of Babe Ruth, was a man of unforgettable secrets, and a baseball Hall of Famer, though his interrupted beginning years resembled a classic bench warmer. His saga is much deeper than the fictional story "The Natural" - and one of the most dramatic in the history of sports figures - featuring his sudden departure from spectacular happenings in Morocco Indiana. Rice was soon fighting within Mexico's Civil War, and also got a taste of World War One - participating in so many major American histories, ala Forrest Gump. This should be a Steven Spielberg movie. It has the Twilight Zone elements.
