Let's be real here, neither Quincey nor White nor Ericsson should be top pairing but one of them will be if we don't pull something out of a hat.
I do not think we will have a top pair. I think Kronwall will get the most ice time playing ES/PK/PP. But at even strength they are going to roll the lines (certainly the top 4).

So naming a number two is really not that important. We either roll all three pairs equally or we hide Smith/Kindl on the bottom line and give:
Kronwall-Ericsson
Qunicey-White
Each 25 minutes a game.
Personally I think we are better off using Smith heavily and rolling all three. Sheltering Kindl just a bit.
