    I think 4 or 5 years at the most.

    Why only 4 or 5 years? Do you think he's going to leave unsatisfied, or be fired (i.e. not re-signed), or be traded. Why do you think he won't stay for his entire career, a la Bergeron?

    Until he asks for something north of 5.5-6m per, and the B's have to walk away from him.

    What a goofy thread.

    Seriously bring something to the table.

    It all depends on how he handles the physical play over time. So far, so good, he is pretty feisty for a little guy and if he can keep it up and stay healthy he should be fine. The difficulty is that his offensive acumen and accompanying performance in pressure situations (albeit a small sample size so far), his price tag may skyrocket pretty quickly. And with a bigger price tag comes bigger minutes. There's a difficulty in a third pairing PP specialist pulling down 3+ mil or whatever might be what's coming for him. If he turns out to be a Rafalski he'll be here for a long time, you just don't let those go. If he's MA Bergeron he's gone pretty quickly.

    He's in a contract year now, right? If he doesn't have an absolutely stellar year or gets horribly exposed up until an extension is worked out, I'd figure he'll get a bridge deal of 2-3 years at about 2 mil. He's on 1.7 including bonuses now if not mistaken. It's what happens after that deal that is hard to predict as of now. Seids and Chara might well be gone or on their last legs, Hamilton possibly a stud or maybe even a dud. We'll know more about Krug's durability and consistency.

    If this was a competition I'd say 7-8 years. He seems to fit well here, is a warrior and plays a way bigger game than his stature. If he can keep that up hell be here at least until we can't afford to keep him which may occur when he's approaching 30 and looking for a big payday.

    His number will hang in the rafters. He will be a bruin forever. Matter of fact i'm thinking of changing my username to KrugyMeister. :D

    this is the most realistic thread I've seen today.

    Do you have some reasoning or an argument to make as to why he won't be a Bruin after 4 or 5 years?

    I'm thinking B's won't have the cap space or Krug won't re sign to a new contract.

    I'm not really sure why this is deserves a thread/ why it couldn't have been included in the all purpose Krug thread...

    at this point, who knows?

    He might be getting really expensive right about the time Grzelcyk is ready for full time play in the lineup, and they may decide they can't have both in the same 6 man defensive grouping. So they replace Krug with Grzelcyk and save some money and pick up a bunch of talent in a deal.
