I was really tempted to go with Nyquist (duh) or Zetterberg (duh). But, ultimately, it has to be Kronwall. I don't see how it could be anyone else. He plays the most minutes. He gets the toughest assignments. He's used in all situations. He's first or second on the team in points while being far and away our best, most valuable defenseman and the reason our blue line isn't among the worst in the league. He became The Leader in Z's absence. He only missed a few games. He's adjusted and elevated his game. Through all the ups and downs and injuries and changes, he's been the one great constant.

I voted Nyquist because I think there's no "ifs" about it. We don't make the playoffs without that ridiculous hot streak. Kronwall a close second though. He had some rough patches (in my opinion) but that's understandable considering how heavily we leaned on him and I was really impressed that he still played after some of the hits he took and wasn't on IR more. Champ.

A Red Wings' MVP poll without Datsyuk?

I think it has to be Kronner, Gus has been incredible and Z would have been MVP if he'd played the whole year, but of all the injuries we had this year, if we lost Kronner for a lengthy period no way we make the playoffs.

I chose Monster.  Not that he'd ever get the recognition, but damn... he got this team in the playoffs and nobody really talks about it.

It's a 4 way tie for me between Bertuzzi, Cleary, Samuelsson, Weiss... without them we would never have seen Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Jurco.
 
Thank you gents for sucking so bad.

As easy as it was to pick last year's MVP (Howard), this year is extremely difficult.  Nyquist has been very good, brilliant at times, but he wasn't here for the first 2 months of the season.  Same can be said for Zetterberg, but he has missed a lot of time... and the team wasn't in a playoff position much of the time he was playing.  (That's not an indictment of him, but the rest of the team has stepped up big-time in his absence.)  Kronwall has not been particularly excellent, but has been a steadying influence, and probably wins the award by default as much as by earning it.  Howard has been far too inconsistent and Gustavsson can't be counted on to stay healthy.  There are a lot of players you can say "without him, we don't make the playoffs"... it's been a complete and total team effort.

Kronwall. He played well against the best. Remained healthy. Can be the next wing to wear the C.

Obviously Nyquist, but I think Alfie should be getting a lot more credit for what he did this season. He was one of the only older players that was consistently in the lineup who produced decently as well. I don't know if we would've been able to pull through without him there. Z was great when he played, but that was half a season. Gustavson was a major help the first half of the season but was less effective as time went on and injuries piled up. Howard? Absolutely not. Kronwall deserves a look, but eh.

It's also dumb. Weiss didn't suck. He was injured. People need to start understanding the difference.

Where was Weiss, Cleary and Samuelsson in this poll? Lol seriously, putting Howard on the list and not Tatar or Datsyuk? These guys make things happen whether they're scoring or not. Howard had a bad year but that can change once the playoffs start. Kronwall made a lot of mistakes for our d captain but overall he was good. 0 plus minus didn't quite cut it for me. Zetts hasn't played much but he was great when he did and monster getting us 37 points while he was back there in goal was good and what more could you ask for from the backup? Vote goes to Nyquist. Game winners, breakaways,and energy. Carried this team.

Nyquist of course. Was putting Jimmy Howard on the list a joke? If so, it was pretty funny!

 

So funny that 2 people voted for him :)

There is an option for "other", so far no-one has chosen to use it...

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I chose "other" and I'm voting Danny Dekeyser.  Logged hard minutes, against good competition, and played very well.  All in his rookie year.  If Smith's uneven play gets excused because he's a rookie, Dekeyser deserves HUGE kudos for being a rookie and playing extremely well.  Just imagine what our defense looks like without him.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I agree that he has been fantastic. But the D would be a lot worst without Kronwall as far as this season goes.

Agreed.  I just wanted to pick "other" to be different.  I'm like the goth kid of hockey forums.  You don't understand me and you never will mom!

I'd give Deke props for his season but not MVP.  I like him more every time I see him play.  He has a great future.

 

I quoted this part of your conversation because "the goth kid of hockey" blew my mind.  That would be awesome to have a team of goth kids.  With gothic mullets.

I'm going with Kronwall.....He became more responsible, and reduced his errors as the season went on.....By far our best, and most consistent Dman.
