Even Kindl, who I have had little hope for in the past, could probably play middle pair minutes on about four teams in this league. Wings fans have a big grass is greener complex when it comes to evaluating our defense.

The reason our defense isn't better, is because really good defensemen are damn hard to find. They don't grow on trees. This isn't a difficult concept and is true at literally every level of hockey. We probably won't see a true number one defensemen on this team for several more years. It is a sad fact of life.
This sounds about right.

I think Quincey will improve. I think our coaches really need to try to get these guys to do defense first. And for god sake, help kronwall to teach him to watch the play... that 2on1 yesterday was bad bad bad

The defenseman's job in the 2on1 is to take out the pass, or the open guy.
