We all know what Goose has done for the team. He has arguably been the best player in 2014 not only for our team, but in the NHL as well. There has been grumblings that he is our MVP this season, and I am ok with that.
But what about our other Gus!? The Monster. We probably would not be in our playoff spot without him, especially in the 2013 Calender year, before Nyquist even came up. Going 16-4-3 has been absolutely huge for the Red Wings.
Goose could lead us into the playoffs. But Monster helped set the tone to get us in the position to be lead into the playoffs.
