This was a good battle. I didn't think any one defenseman really looked putrid.
Which is really what "defense by committee" is all about. The big question is, now that we've signed Huskins, what happens when everyone's healthy?

Huskins looked pretty solid. Kindl comes back soon, so it's probably now or never (in Detroit) for Jakub. Alternatively, Quincey can be dealt. White is UFA at the end of the year but is unlikely to be traded unless the team is a deadline seller (read: terrible record) so we can pretty much figure that the defensive pairings will look something like this with a healthy post-Quincey defense:

Kronwall-Huskins
Smith-Ericsson
Kindl/Colaiacovo-White

Alternatively:

Kronwall-White
Smith-Huskins
Kindl-Ericsson
Colaiacovo
