Lashoff has never really shown anything other than being a bottom pairing kind of guy. Yet was given significant time with Kronwall.

That's the difference. We are talking about expectations based on past performance.
What about expectations based on past performance when it comes to Kindl? Lashoff in 2 dozen games has shown more than Kindl. Sorry if that hurts some feelings. Protip: your pet prospect doesn't always live up to the hype.

Career wise maybe, but Kindl has been far better this season.

I know he had a disastrous run with Kronwall in a top pairing role, but aside from that, I don't think Lashoff has been a top 4 guy. And I haven't seen anything out of him to bank on him becoming a solid top 4 guy in the future. Seems like Babs has wisely tried to shield him from the tougher matchups for a while now.

I'm not on the Kindl bandwagon, but IMO he's been better than Lashoff. Not that it really matters- on a team with quality defensive depth, both guys would be fighting for 3rd pairing mins. Maybe they'll be our 3rd pairing for the future, who knows?

Great effort. Ultimate trolling of HFboards as well. Without even looking, Mindfly stated that this game was boring and the Wings didn't deserve to win it because Canucks played bad/Howard had to stand on his head/Gave up goal 6 seconds in/Cleary and Abdelkader scored/ect...
