There may be no studs if Kronwall can't stay healthy, but there are at least 2 solid depth guys. The lack of a sure-thing top guy is even more reason to go after Chara, who would anchor the D for years.
What do you mean Kronwall and Lebda have "panned out". Kronwall has 20 games of NHL experience and is returning from a serious knee injury. We have no clue what the future lies for him. He could be great...but its not a given. He hasnt panned out at all.

And Lebda? He is up here because of injuries. If not for Kronwall, Woolley and Fishcers injuries, and the fact that Rivers stinks, we wouldnt have even seen him up this year. He has been a good 3rd pairing guy, and has done an excellent job filling in for the Wings this year. But he isnt someone you want logging 20 minutes a game for the next 5+ years. He is a fringe NHL defensman. So...how has he panned out?
