The thing that excites me is our size and speed on D. Id love to trade Kronwall away and let White and Colo go.
They all arent ready yet, but I bet those 7 will make an excellent group in 2-3 years.
You want to trade our best defenseman? You can argue all you want and point at his atrocious -9 but he IS our best defenseman and he isn't going anywhere. He's always out against other teams top lines for a reason. He's also paired with a rookie right now and as solid as Lashoff looks out there he is prone to mistakes. He will get much better and I think he will provide the same level of comfort and stability that Stuart did while he was here.
I would like to see something like this in about 3 years...
Smith - Sproul
Kronwall - Ericsson / Kindl
Ouellet - Lashoff
