How does PK lack vision compared to any of those guys? He used to lack patience in the previous years, which lead him to not take the best decision. In the same sense, he lacked poise by wanting to do too much, like trying to deke a player while being the last man back.
But that is it, and this falls into the maturity bubble, not hockey sense. He already is more patient with the puck this year and takes less risks, he also worked on his shot and his passing improved. He still reads the plays very well, just as well as anybody else.

When you lack hockey sense, you will look lost, you'll be out of position, you'll misread plays, you'll get caught. That rarely happens with PK. It happens on occasion like to any other Dman in the NHL. It doesn't happen often enough to actually make it a flaw in his game.
These things happen semi frequently with pk, but he has the speed and strength to make up for it. No one should be arguing that hockey sense is PK's strong point, because it isn't.
