    Kronwall is 24! Most of these d-men will have 1-2-3 NHL seasons under their belt at 24, so why is 6ft Kronwall so high?

    1. Phaneuf (This is an obvious)
    2. Grebs (Potential wise he has almost no ceiling just having problems filling it but this is based on potential)
    3. Kronwall (Yes older then others yet still think he will be better then others)
    4.Whitney (dont know much but he is highly touted)
    5. Hamhuis (On NSH he will get the minutes to shine)

    Kronwall had 2 more points than Hamhuis this year in the AHL, Hamhuis had 26 points as a 21 year old in the NHL despite getting little time on the powerplay as he played behind Kimmo and Zidlicky.

    Yeah? Did you see how dominant Kronwall was in the WC's?

    I think you missed the 'offensive potential' aspect of the initial post.

    Yeah, and that means what exactly? Lots of players dominate the WC's. Lots of players put up points too. Look at the top 10 defensive scorers. Of the 9 that aren't Kronwall, only 4 are legit NHLers. A good tournament is nice. A great tournament is even nicer. It's a great feather to have in his cap. But his performance in that tournament does nothing more than fuel hype.

    We should be basing this on his great season in the AHL, not on a two week tournament. While the AHL is hardly the NHL, it's certainly as relevant as the WC's and considering it lasts more than a few games, it's even more relevant. And in that aspect, Triggr is right. Despite being two years younger, Hammer was with him stride for stride the entire season.

    While Kronwall was outstanding in the first half of the season, he was not as dominant in the second half. The only concern I have with him would be his stamina. He might not be able to stand the rigors of the NHL @20+ minutes a game for a whole season. On the other hand Hamhuis was more consistant all season long, and there's no doubt that he can play a whole season in the big league.
