from Nate Brown of Detroit Hockey Now,

Part two kicks off with some of the questions surrounding the team performance.

#6: Who has been Detroit’s best player so far?

This is tough because there are a handful of players who have been outstanding for the Red Wings. The top two, however that come immediately to mind are Dylan Larkin and Ville Husso.

Husso, aside from a pair of games, has been one of the strongest reasons for Detroit’s improvement. Larkin has not only been consistent, but has led by example through performance and behavior on the ice. Leading the team in goals and points, Larkin’s contract extension seems a foregone conclusion. It’s just what number and term they settle on that remains the mystery.

#7: What about surprising struggles?

Alex Nedeljkovic. It’s certainly not been the season he nor the Red Wings envisioned. He has seen Magnus Hellberg supplant him as the backup goalie. The new year will be an opportunity for Nedeljkovic to reclaim the form that they both expected. There’s still plenty of time, too.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
