Do you think DZ is a longterm solution as a offensive D? I don't. He has become an average NHL defenseman. That is a good thing, but when he is your #1 offensive option something is wrong. He still might become that, but I would bet against.
i'm pretty surprised at you brother. you're usually not so quick to jump to conclusions (Krug)

5 games against a team that puts absolutely ZERO pressure on a defenseman...against a team that lost its identity as a forechecking hard hitting team. Krug was under no pressure whatsoever and succeeded almost 100% thanks to a rifle of a slapshot that he has.

5 games against 1 team whose entire defensive structure is about giving up time and space to the opposition in order to pack the middle to protect against shots is NOT the way to make decisions on a player.
