Detroit’s Steve Thomas is Detroit’s entry for the Masterton Trophy.
He kind of had a rough season in Detroit with lots of injuries and a cold stick. He should still be pretty handy in the playoffs, though. He was a huge factor for the Ducks during their playoff run last season.
Detroit is both shockingly deep and shockingly shallow. On paper, they’re so strong. But injuries have taken their toll. And players aren’t healing quickly enough. And those that do heal still need to regain their peak form.
So Detroit is deep but their depth is relatively inexperienced.
