The Other Nick In Detroit

from Karl Samuelson at NHL.com,

“I think Niklas Kronvall will continue to develop and be a strong offensive guy for us,” Babcock said. “With Brian Rafalski and Niklas Lidstrom, plus Kronvall, it gives us three real puck movers. Brett Lebda, Andreas Lilja and Chris Chelios can move the puck, but the other three are all guys you can count on offensively and are among the top scorers in the NHL on the back end. In today’s game you need offense from your defensemen.”

Kronvall is an exceptional skater with great hockey sense and those talents allow him to join the Red Wings rush as the fourth attacker and even step into the deep slot to one-time the puck. Some regard Kronvall as the next dominant European defensemen.
