on what planet is kronwall a top-10 dman? LOL. guy can't play defense to save his life.
That is a misconception around here probably because we have been spoiled watching the Perfect Human Being for so long.
I've even seen him referred to as a 'turnover machine' here. Lol
Of the top 10 scoring d-man only 1 is credited with more GiveAways, even those touted as Norris candidates like Letang (who has twice as many), Beauchemin, Chara, Weber, Pietrangelo, Keith, Doughty... have more.
He leads the team in blocked shots and is one of the game's most feared hitters.
He has the skill and acumen to move the puck and is a main reason we are still a top puck possession team (when we have the puck the opponets can't score)
Name 30 better defensemen in the league than Kronner (1 #1 dman per team) and I will agree he is not a #1 dman
There's not 10 better.
