Not so sure about that. Not knocking Kron at all, but he benefited greatly by playing with #5. Honestly, he's looking solid, but a 2 or 3 best. Not overly impressive at all. If there is one coming, it may be Danny D!
There are generational players like Lidstrom, Orr, Shore, and Harvey.
Then there are elite guys like Pronger, Chara, Konstantinov, and Suter.
Then there are #1 guys. They're not elite/top 5 or 6 in the league guys, but they're better than 90% of the other defensemen in the league. Kronwall falls into this group.
Name 25 defensemen who are better than Kronwall. Not about the same, or "maybe you can make an argument about it," clearly better. If you can do it I will change my sig to whatever you want for a month.
