The 2013-14 NHL season exposed a lot of good and bad throughout the Detroit Red Wings lineup.

Most notably, it became clear who the most important players on the team are.

Detroit possesses some of the league’s biggest stars, but some other names could make a case for bigger roles in 2014-15.

The roster is littered with esteemed leaders, some of whom can put points on the board at will. Losing players of this caliber is crushing to a team, and the Red Wings still managed to make their 23rd consecutive postseason appearance anyway.

Leadership, on-ice efficiency and valuable intangibles contribute to how each player ranks on this list.

The asset each provides earns them an integral spot in the Red Wings’ lineup and a special place in the hearts of Hockeytown faithful.

These are the five most important players on the Detroit Red Wings roster.
