I'm speaking specifically about this season on defense. However, the only reason the forwards even got a shot was due to injuries. I don't care about losing out on Diaz if it means Marchenko or Ouellet gets the spot instead. If the Wings are just going to roll with Kindl and Lashoff again, then I don't really know what the plan is on defense. It's not really necessarily rushing anyone -- Ouellet or Marchenko could easily hold their own already on the third pairing.
Then how can they "be incorporated quicker" if this season hasn't even started yet.
The defence will get worked in this year. If they don't at all, then I'll probably upset as well.
It just seems a lot of people are jumping the gun on things that haven't even happened yet...
