McDonagh and Kreider have stepped up VERY admirably, but the entire defense, and some notable impact forwards now feel it's okay to give half effort. At least that's what I'm seeing.
I don't think its fair to say McDonagh stepped up because he never actually stepped down. He has been the anchor in D for the past 3 seasons, but his offense went up this season bc AV is actually letting him shoot.

MacTruck is the best player on our team, and in my eyes has been the most consistent in the past 3. I think I have only seen him make 2-3 mistakes since I started paying attention to him. He is beast mode.
