Thoughts on Kronwall this year...

Well we all knew he wasn't Nick lidstrom going into this year, but nobody is.

Many have been quite critical of his defensive play so far.
I always thought he was avg defensively in the role he had up to this year,
And knew being put in a first pairing position that part of his game would be exploited and more visible for all to see.

One thing people haven't mentioned is offensive production. Ten points in 12 games
Has him tied for 4th overall for defenseman. If he played 48 games that would
Put him on pace for 40 points, and on a 82 game schedule on pace for a whopping 68
Point. Not bad at all.

Perhaps give him some more time to get used to his new partner and role, and he can get better.
I'm not saying he's going to be awesome defensively but perhaps better, and don't forget about the
Offense so far.

I would still like the wings to acquire a top pairing dman to be sure though.


Thoughts?
