    You think Krug will be worth $6.5m when he’s 35-36? Waaaaay too risky to commit that much term to Krug right now when we have options at LD.

    Yes but what team is trading a top 6 RW for an impending UFA LD? I'd venture to guess teams that would be looking to acquire a Krug type are in the same echelon as Boston in terms of contending.

    No more than 6 years.

    8 year deals should be reserved for franchise level talents. Things can fall off the map in a hurry. Age, injury, motivation..... So many variables. Even with trades, term is often a bigger obstacle than cap hit or salary.

    If you saw my posts on the last page you'd see I threw out WPG potentially being a suitor and mentioned Roslovic and DKH suggested Vesalainen as well. I think those are they type of deals you can get for a pending UFA, and obviously the team, WPG in this case, would most likely be trying to extend him, not rent him. Basically, if you're saying a deal can't be made I don't agree with that. Even a team like Detroit (Torey is from Michigan went to Michigan State) could be a suitor for Krug. They are trying to rebuild and he could instantly be a huge presence/leader in that locker room and I'm sure that's a place Torey wouldn't mind going especially with Stevie Y in charge. There are deals out there to be made whether it's a contender or otherwise.

    I bet that Krug has Winnipeg on his no-trade list. Besides, the Jets need RHDs.

    Bokk was the prospect... a top 50 one at that. edmunson is a 2nd pairing defender that’s been in the NHL for a few years now and has been averaging 20 minutes per game on the St. Louis Blues. So he can clearly play.

    Hence why I said if Faulk can get that type of return, Krug should be able to get you a top 50 prospect and a 2nd line RW.

    Why would WPG be on his no trade list? I highly doubt they are one of the 8 teams. Agreed on the need being RD, but I don't think that means it's out of the question.

    Krug has a young new family and is about to be able to choose anywhere in North America to put down his roots.

    Why on earth would he want to go to the least liked city by NHL players according to players poll?

    Are they explicitly on his NTC? Who knows. But the chances of them get non-rental return from the Jets because Krug is going to re-up seems like crazy talk to me.

    Fair enough. I understand your viewpoints. I just don't 100% agree.

    I’ve been thinking since Buff did what he may do that Miller may be a target for the Jets. He’s a big physical defender they need in the west. He’s going to cost pretty much nothing for them to acquire. Seems like the perfect fit. Only issue is his injury history. But with no real cost to get him it’s an easy gamble to take. If they took Moore off our hands I’d be even more enthusiastic.

    If you know anything about Winnipeg it’s on your list. Same with Edmonton. HE doesn’t need to put basement teams on his list because he knows they aren’t trading for him.

    Step 1) Sign

    Step 2) Trade

    Step 3) Profit

    Work with Krug on where his destination will be and how many $$$ he gets. Send him to a contender he'd be happy to go to. No way Bruins can sign Coyle, DeBrusk and Krug for next season without moving Backes which doesn't seem likely. Losing Krug to UFA would be incredibly stupid, he could be a game changer on some teams, I don't think he is on the Bruins.

    Losing Trouba that would make sense - right shot & physical style

    Although he may end up playing here with he & Clifton 6 & 7 and Kampfer 8

    As long as Moore is on LTIR and everyone healthy I would bet this is the plan

    Chara-McAvoy
    Krug-Carlo
    Grzelcyk-Miller/Clifton
    Kampfer

    Miller gets the nod all things equal

    I would NOT deal Miller unless I had to

    Only with a healthy team and Moore do they need to act

    If he’s out till January 1 they got a lot of time to evaluate and see what happens to their health

    Their dream 3rd pair is a healthy

    I don't see #2 happening if you get #1 done. Also don't see the "profit" in moving him at all. You're trying to win a cup. Trading your best offensive defenseman isn't going to help that. Krug is a game-changer, no matter what team he is on. Ludicrous to think otherwise.

    And your plan is severely flawed if you're trying to trade Krug for a T6RW, because that player is more than likely going to carry a Krug-Like AAV. So you're not going to gain any extra money to sign Coyle and DeBrusk.

    Well if you trade him for Tuch like I proposed a few pages back there is what I figure to be at least about 2M less than what Krug will likely get.

    Go see how far a pending UFA for a 23 year old 20 goal scoring cost controlled power forward goes on the main boards.

    Lot of talk over one game.

    Here’s the thing Bruce should have done him a favor and let him hop on the ice halfway through the last PP we got and changed it up and let PP2 start. No line changing or anything just a simple adjustment and some accountability for everyone’s good.

    I don’t see any Krug extension coming unless he agrees to something with no NMC where Seattle can take him. Carlo and McAvoy are that good and we can’t lose that flexibility. Shame.

    It's just that McPhee isn't on the main boards, what they think is irrelevant.

    He was just on 93.7 Hill Show as he drove to work. Very good interview - very thoughtful and my takeaway he will be staying here long term. He didn’t say anything obvious a deal was close but he was definitely more then 50% positive nothing negative and he knows what the Bruins are offering and thinking

    Torey Krug: Contract extension with Bruins is still ‘work-in-progress’

    Krug is in the last year of his four-year contract with an average annual value of $5.25 million. He addressed the state of his contract negotiations with Bruins general manager Don Sweeney on an appearance on The Greg Hill Show on Wednesday.

    "It's a work-in-progress," Krug said. "Obviously nothing's done right now, so you'd like to get to that point. But we'll see. I don't really want to talk too much about it just out of respect for everything, for Donny, for my teammates as well, just being in the thick of the season. But we'll see, hopefully it works out that way."

    Greg asked Krug about comments he made earlier in the year about being willing to take less money to stay with the Bruins, the only NHL organization he has known since he left Michigan State and became a college free agent in 2012. Krug waxed poetic about his love for the Bruins and Boston.

    "Well the idea behind it is you know realistically just living a happy life," Krug said. "This is a great city where, you know I've mentioned before, championships are expected on a yearly basis and we expect it of ourselves.

    "And ultimately winning makes a lot of people happy, so when we have the group that we have and you understand how things work here, the camaraderie, brotherhood if you will, these are some of our closest friends that we've grown up together and you want to be part of it for a very long time.

    "And then you couple that with how happy your family is, you want your kid to grow up in this wonderful city as well, you just pair all those things together and that's where the thought process comes from."
