Kronner does not have a capable slap shot from the point, therefore he is not elite.
I'm kind of kidding there, but IMO here are d-men who are better than Kronner.
Keith Yandle - No
Brent Burns - No
Dustin Byfuglien - No
John Carlson - No
Denis Wideman - No
That's 18 I'm comfortable with and then you can add Justin Faulk, Victor Hedman, Dougie Hamilton, Jake Muzzin, Aaron Ekblad, Tyson Barrie, and T.J. Brodie to pass him soon. Admittedly my list is offense-heavy, but our blueline produces zero offense.
Kronner is never going to be what we wanted him to be.
Seriously though, the guy has a pretty weak slap shot.
Did you forget the defense part of the position? The guys I edited are definitely not all around better then Kronwall and there is a still a couple other questionable ones on there as well.
