    Umm, I never said **** like that didn't happen, I said licking didn't. Who cares if it happened back then, doesn't make it right. Also he does a lot more than licking a guy, that makes him an idiot and if you don't see that, you must be visually challenged.

    Marchand is elite, and a rat. Root for the Bruins and you'll love him, I wish the B's won the cup.
    This thread is way off topic haha we aren't getting Krug or Marchand, they're huge pieces of that team, this speculation is crazy

    I never claimed his antics were not idiotic. I claimed that he's the type of guy you hate unless he is on your team.
    If you can't see that, then you must be reading impaired.

    I still don't think Krug coming here has much legs. I have a couple concerns we probably lose some futures in any deal and he would become our best defense-man overnight and would likely be paid as such. So I have to ask is Krug the guy we want to center our defensive core around? He is not old by any means but he would be entering the outside of peak years by the time any core starts to take hold here. If Stevey Y worked some magic and didn't give up much and got a below market deal that's different. It would really depend what was given and how much he signed for. Do we really want a 6-7 million dollar D signed long term that is going to slightly age outside the core while giving up picks prospects etc to make that happen when most of the return is a legit D during a time when it won't matter?

    Hmm well on one hand we’d allow 5 goals a game but on the other hand our power play would be real good.

    One angle on Krug which would be a dicey decision on his part as Blashill enters a contract year, but they are very close. Both Alec Martinez and Torey Krug have wonderful things to say about Blashill. I know most of this board hates him, but there are two guys he developed as youngsters that positively beam about the guy, so does Larkin lately as well. Interesting to note.

    I've always like Blashill. I hope he stays and proves to be a cup championship coach with Detroit in the next 3 to 7 years.

    Could Red Wings possibly lure Torey Krug back home? - The Boston Globe

    - Next summer UFA - check
    - Michigan-born wife - check
    - Need for a PP quarterback - check

    Detroit Red Wings: Quinn Hughes Was A Better Choice Than Filip Zadina

    Interesting.

    I also saw a Twitter-rumour, that Krug has bought a house from Michigan, but didn't find the source anymore. Can anyone make this official?

    Unless Krug blows his knee out that’s not happening. We got Green for his price because he was the most injury prone puck moving top4 in the league.

    I don’t think Krug is the guy to sign a massive 1D contract to. I’d only sign Norris contending defenders to something like that. Plus/Minus is as surface level as it gets but it’s a little telling that he’s only plus 24 (minus 15 the last 4) after 7 seasons on the best defensive team in the NHL

    Dunno, but Krug has highest Points/60 of all NHL defencemen since October 2017.

    No chance he’s coming to Detroit.

    Regardless of the fact he’s from Michigan - the truth is that we’re still 2, or 3 years away from making the playoffs...Anyone in their right mind isn’t gonna sign with us unless Yzerman grossly overpays.

    I wouldn't mind a signing but I would rather invest in someone 4-5 years younger Tory is on the top of his prime right now and will likely get a raise from some team to be a top producing PPQB. I don't want that kind of contract from a 28 year old. If it takes this core 5-6 years to hit then Tory is eating up 5-7 million in cap as a 33-34 year old when a cup window opens. How is he going to hold up through a cup window? For some reference Green is 34 Ericsson is 35, Kronwal was 38 but I think his decline extends back 3-4 seasons easily.

    Would love to see Krug here to help out but not on a 5-6 year top pairing PPQB contract.

    A team with Cholo and Hronek should go after a Muzzin before a Krug

    Krug doesn't have a 5 on 5 assist thus far this season. He's 194th among NHL defensemen in 5 on 5 points/60 this season.
    Since Oct. 2018, he's 83rd. .84 points/60 - same as Ian Cole and Zach Bogosian.
    He's 27th since Oct. 2017 at 1.04 points/60.
    He's a power play specialist.

    He's got the second worst GF% on the Bruins defense over the last three seasons, despite having the easiest deployments on the team.

    And this means he is a bad player?

    Not worth of getting free?

    He's not a bad player, just a limited one. Question is if he'll be worth his cap hit/term. Also, Hronek looks like a good power play guy, and Cholo is being given every chance to grow that part of his game. Seider looked good there in the pre-season and seems to be leaving a good impression in GR. We might not need a guy whose biggest positive is that he's really good on the power play. At least not need it enough to pay a premium.

    edit: and I have to say, I've been pro Krug for awhile, and still am. I'd like him over Muzzin. Would prefer a Pietrangelo, but who wouldn't.

    We could have gotten Quinn Hughes for free and on an ELC. Krug will not be free, there will be substantial risk attached to any contract you can sign him to as an UFA. You wouldn't need to trade assets but he's likely to have the same cost to sign as Trouba: 7 years, $56 million. Trouba is 25 and will likely still be in his prime when that contract ends. If Krug signs a 7 year deal he'll be 35 which has a lot of risk associated with a deal that long and paying him a premium at that age. It could become a very bad contract that can only be moved to a team that needs to get to the cap floor.

    I'd be OK with Krug and also be willing to pay him a higher AAV on a shorter deal, say 4-5 years. I'd be very concerned about every year at 33 or older. If he wants to come back to Michigan that would be my offer: 4 years $10 million per or 5 years $8.5 million per year. That's probably about $12 to $16 million less than he could get with a 7 year deal on the open market. However 4 or 5 years is where I would draw the line. I would not sign him to a contract where he will be 35 in the final year of the deal.

    It's a tough decision either way. I really wish we would have drafted Hughes, who will likely be a better player than Krug, is much younger, and would provide incredible value over the lifetime of the deal. Poor drafting is why we are one of the absolute worst teams in the league and have to consider overpaying for a UFA to address a clear organizational shortcoming and take on the associated risk of doing so.

    If he makes it to free agency I could see Detroit making him an offer but not guarentees he signs.

    However I highly doubt Boston will trade him even if he doesn't re-sign. Stanley cup contenders do not trade their top offensive blueliner.

    Some guy at reddit mentioned, Krug has bought a house from Adrian, Michigan. Near from where his brother is a coach for the college team.



    Could someone confirm this?

    Interesting move, if true, half year before the free agency.

    He's from Michigan, has family in Michigan and has cash to burn. Buying a home in Michigan should not be a surprise but I'd love this kid on the Wings.

    Carry on with the speculation.

    I think that Krug will cost between 6.25M (Keith Yandle) to 7.575M (Jared Spurgeon) on a 6 year deal.

    I could live with that.

    Krug - Hronek
    Dekeyser - Seider
    Nemeth - Cholowski

    Quite sure Cholowski becomes a trade bait if Krug arrives.

    Same type of player, just not anywhere on that level.

    Our left side would be on good shape with McIsaac jumping in next year.

    Isn't he from MI? Not sure why him having a place where he's from would be surprising.
