Kromwell would have a hard time pushing his way to second on the depth chart and certainly most teams have players like him in their lineup.
I geuss they different teams. I mean look at the pens offense with or without Gonchar. Or look at detroit last year when Lids, Kronwall, Rafalski were all injured. They were horrible
With Gonchar Crosby/malkin score more. Without they may be able to play defense better but no one to move the puck up the ice. Kronwall moves the puck up the ice thats sorta his role.
I could be wrong but i believe
Gonchar, Whitney, Letang are offensive defensemen. Dunno if they are better or worse then Kronwall movin the puck up the ice.
The others are serious stay at home guys.
