WWYDW: How do you handle the Wings’ D with Kronwall on the verge of returning?

what would you do wednesday red wings

While the winning streak is nice, the Wings are going to have to start answering some tough questions. Ryan Sproul and Xavier Ouellet have been splitting ice time, while Niklas Kronwall rehabs. 

How exactly do they handle his return?

Sproul has put up two points in three games and has nine SOG as well. Ouellet on the other hand has one point in four games and only five SOG. Kronwall has been the back bone of the defense for quite a while, should they welcome him back with open arms or should they allow him to recover a bit more.

Ken Holland is obviously going to try and get Kronwall in the lineup as quickly as possible but we want to hear from you. 

What would you do with the defense once Kronwall is healthy?

    I think the obvious choice is to sit Sproul. Ouellet, too. But it seems a shame to put Sproul in the press box. He’s looked very good. It seems as though more and more teams are trending toward icing three right-handed Dmen, so maybe Sproul platoons with Smith and Ericsson. This still leaves Ouellet as the odd man out, though. Taking a longer view: it’s a long season. Injuries will spring up, and he’ll get back in the game.
