I know what you're saying, but I think you're selling our defensive d-men a bit short. Also, I think another puck mover would help fill the void on the second pp unit point where we don't have a quality defenseman OR forward to fill the spot. I'd like to see something like this...
That's a solid puck mover and defensive d-man on each pairing. Plus, then you'd have Kindl-Kulikov/Del Zotto as the points on the second powerplay unit.
I think you're selling Kindl short though. He is that puck-moving guy and he's not as much a liability defensively as those two.
We can agree we need depth on D lol
