I've gone from doom and gloom after the first 10 games to being really excited and optimistic now. People are going to start oggling ovrr our defense and goalie situation VERY soon. Ericsson, DeKeyser, and Kindl have matured into dependable minutes guys. Quincey and Smith are almost there too. Lashoff, Almquist, Sproul, and Ouelette will follow soon. I'm going to say it now = we have the best D + Goalie lineup in the NHL. Might be homerism, but I haven't felt like a homer in a while. Can't wait to watch game 1!
DeKeyser didn't even need to mature. He just stepped in and played 2nd pairing minutes and it was seamless. And for that, I thank the Wings, Babcock and Holland for signing him and giving him minutes.
