I have a question. After seeing how smith played with kronwall(great for those who may struggle with the answer).
And we still have Ericsson and dekeyser so WHY DO WE NEED A TOP 4?!?!??!???
Unless someone is planning to be moved? I mean I'd like a right handed guy but this kind of blows my mind.
I don't think they mean that adding a "Top 4" defenseman will automatically push someone else down a notch. That would all depend on defense pairings (chemistry) and possibly even situations. They just mean someone of that caliber, who can compete with our four best.
