Kindl's defensive game isn't bad. It isn't good, either. IMO, Kind is a lot less likely to take minior penalties. His positioning and defensive instincts are better than Q's.
The issues with Kindl:
1) Inexperienced
2) Prone to careless errors
3) Doesn't play tough.
If his positioning and defensive instincts are better than Quinceys than why is it that NHL coaches have played Q so much? And why is it that when on the same team that was struggling, Kindl still couldnt get a job? In fact he played almost 8 less minutes per game.

Its not that Kindls defensive instincts are better its that Quincey is actually out there playing the game, and not taking sheltered minutes against bottom line players
