This is pretty cool:
MALKIN, KRONWALL AND KEITH NAMED NHL ‘THREE STARS’ OF THE WEEK
NEW YORK (Dec. 2, 2013) – Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin, Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall and Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith have been named the NHL’s “Three Stars” for the week ending Dec. 1.
SECOND STAR – NIKLAS KRONWALL, D, DETROIT RED WINGS
Kronwall posted a trio of multi-point games in leading the Red Wings (14-7-7, 35 points) to three victories in three starts. He scored his third goal of the season, all on the power play, and added an assist in a 6-1 victory over the Boston Bruins Nov. 27. Kronwall then posted a pair of two-assist games: in a 5-0 win over the New York Islanders Nov. 29 and in a 4-2 triumph over the Ottawa Senators Dec. 1. The 32-year-old Stockholm native has 2-7—9 during a six-game point streak dating to Nov. 21, including assists in five consecutive contests. He is tied for fourth among NHL defensemen with 18 assists and 21 points in 26 games this season.
And yes, as Paul noted, when Kronwall was on The Fan 590 and said farewell to Nick Kypreos and Paul MacLean, Kypreos almost whispered, "But he isn't a #1 defenseman, he's a 2-3 guy," and Kypreos suggested that Ken Holland rather desperately needs to find a #1 defenseman.
I'm on the go-after-Alex Edler bandwagon.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
