The most important fact the Detroit Red Wings have learned this season is that they can count on Dylan Larkin, 22, to be a difference-maker.

“We’ve got what I call a bus driver,” general manager Ken Holland told USA TODAY Sports. “Jonathan Toews drives the bus in Chicago. Patrice Bergeron drives the bus in Boston. Dylan Larkin drives the bus in Detroit. Those guys are hard to find. He’s not Connor McDavid or Auston Matthews, but he is a bus driver.”

Plenty of interesting quotes from Ken Holland in this one. He praises his players and the team... and I don’t really disagree with what he says.
