Some of that is match-ups but sooner or later we're going to have to admit Kronwall just isn't very good in his own end. He needs a shutdown guy like Ericsson with him or he'll continue to give up goals.

Quincey is in the top 20 defenders in the entire NHL in +/- so saying he makes the team worse is just your own personal bias that has no basis in fact.

You may not like Quincey's contract but in reality 3.775 is pretty much average for a middle pairing defenceman. He's been at worst #3 on the Wings depth chart this season, so I don't know how you can say he isn't a top 4 guy.
based on what?

he was last among defensemen in ice-time tonight

he was last on Sunday too

and Saturday

and Thursday

i'd love to know how being last in ice-time the last 4 games in a row equates to "at worst #3 on the Wings depth chart this season"
