It's been only 6 games, but during the off/preseason fans on LGW were bemoaning how bad our defense was.
Well I think it has been pretty good. Of course, it helps that our goal tending has been great and many of our forwards are playing good defense, making it easier on the defensemen... but here is how I rank our defensemen's play thus far:
1. B.Smith - he has been awesome on both ends
2. DD - most consistent in the D-zone
3. Kronner - solid, with some turnovers
4. Q - has played pretty fricking good and is competing
5. Glendening - has played better D that the last two
6 (tie) - Kindl/Ericsson - flashes of good play, followed by some head scratchers. I think Kindl has actually out-played Ericsson
1. B. Smith he looks much stronger and has been awesome
2. DD - way to go Danny our most reliable defender guy is just a machine
3. Kronwall - solid start so far.
4. Glendening - plays solid D and is starting to get involved into the physical stuff too love it
5. Quincey - competes hard I like that
6. Kindl - better than I thought but only because of...
7. Ericcson - wow does this guy need to get his game together, slow breakout passes, give aways and looks a bit sluggish
