Kindl's play has been pretty bad lately. He's committing bad turnovers and taking bad penalties. He looks way too slow and it is showing.

If he were really good in Grand Rapids I would say its probably just being a rookie.

But the fact of the matter is, he was never good defensively and I'm really starting to lean towards he just isn't that good. He has some offensive potential it looks like but he coughs the puck up so much and is bad in his zone

he's played pretty damn well since stu went down. he hasnt played great in the last couple games, but i'll let a few bonehead plays slide, especially since hes really done quite well in his last stint up. No complaints from me yet.

I think Kindl has been just fine relative to his role.

I'm more disturbed by our six million dollar d-man that can't play defense.

Some people are incredible. He had a very, very solid stretch of about 15 games where his play seemingly got better every night, has struggled a bit over the past week, and this thread appears with stupid poll options.

Unbelievable. :thumbdown:

Pretty ridiculous thread, frankly. He's still a kid.

We can't expect every call-up to be Nick Lidstrom's successor or we're going to be terribly disappointed.

Yes, he makes mistakes. Guess what? Every defenseman in the NHL does except for the guy with the Winged Wheel on his chest and the number five on his back.

Kindl has the potential to be a good defenseman; maybe not a #1 or #2, but definitely a #3 or #4 guy. He still has a few years yet before he's supposed to hit his prime. Give the kid time to develop.

Fixed. Also, Kindl does still have first-pairing potential. Because he's not killing it playing part-time in his rookie season is hardly an indication of failure in that area. He needs to be provided with decent playing time to be able to learn the NHL game, and as he's an offensive defenseman who's not great defensively, preferably a strong defensive partner.

Next year there's a pretty decent chance he's playing on the regular roster. Give it another year before saying "his potential has slipped like my shorts during one of my oil wrestling matches" or whatever the hell it is you are saying.

Just a rookie.

If it were down to a decision of just a few games or a playoff series, I'd consider scratching him, but he's still been in this system for a lengthy time for a reason.

Remember how much Ericsson was bagged on last season, and overall this season he's been fine for the most part.

Short-term/recent past he hasn't been all that good, but I want him to work out here for the long term.

He's just a rookie making rookie mistakes. Not everyone came play like Nick Lidstrom.

In my opinion, I don't think he possesses the NHL-caliber talent. I've seen him more than enough in Grand Rapids and he never stood out, except for the repeated mistakes and turnovers. Sure, I'll give some benefit-of-the-doubt on the "Rookie" option, but after watching him play, he's not making "rookie" mistakes and learning, he's repeating the same mistakes continously. Maybe he may just not be "fully cooked", I don't know. But I just don't see the NHL-caliber defenseman in his play.

Just a rookie. While he hasn't totally blown the world up, he has actually played a little better than Big E (up until these past 2 games where Ericsson just all of a sudden grew a pair). I am willing to wait and see what we may have in him. I am not thinking he is as bad as the OP suggests and feel maybe it's time to stop pointing fingers at kids like him. He does play better defense than Salei I think and better than that one guy that makes 6 mill.
