Kindl will play
Kindl was drafted 8 years ago in the 1st round, time after time he has failed to crack the lineup full time. He will play only when there are injuries and when someone needs a break...that is sad for him. He has had every oppurtunity to be a top 6 or top 5 defender, its just not in the cards here for him. Lashoff has passed him up on the depth chart and even though Kindl is better than Quincey, Quincey will get in before him just because of his salary. I know that the draft is a gamble, but when you are drafted in the 1st round, especially as high as he was, you are expected to be a regular player at least, if not a top 2 defenseman. Right now, Huskins and Lashoff are both more valuable than Kindl. When Smith returns it is Kindl who will sit, not Lashoff. Kindl will probably rotate with Huskins but when Quincey returns (barf) Huskins will get the nod of Kindl and when fully healthy, Lashoff has options so he will be sent down, but Huskins will continue to be the rotating D-man with Cola. Kindl is best served at getting us a nice 3rd round pick in return...
