    Yeah, if Krug can help to fill an organizational need (i.e., future #1 center), then I think that it’s worth pulling the trigger on such a deal.

    small sample size & who knows how long he can keep it up but over his last 4 games he has been putting on a Norris-caliber performance

    I love Krug, but, would I trade him "at the high" for a #1 center/wing? Yes. I do worry about Bergy/Marchand/Krejci/Backes/ aging and not having any top-end talent to backfill. Yes, DeBrusk is a nice player.... On the other hand it looks like between Moore/Krug/Clifton/Carlo/Vaak/McAvoy we may have one guy to spare if it is a huge upgrade to top 6?

    It would be a tough call but if we are ever going to trade Krug this is the time to do it his stock is as high as it will ever be. Would you trade him for someone like Mitch Marner?

    All the haters who wanted him gone, well are you happy now. Guy has and is a warrior, glad to have him and keep him long term.

    My respect for Krug always goes back to him signing with The Bruins as college FA when the B's had a deep d-core and very good team and he wasn't guaranteed anything while Justin Schultz whom was the most sought after that year signed with The Oilers as he was guaranteed minutes. Before he signed though, and my memory is hazy, Krug tweeted something to Schultz telling him to sign with Boston and join a winner.
    On-ice aside, that shows the kind of person he is. He took the harder road but wanted to win and had enough confidence and work ethic to make it work.

    He definitely proved his doubters wrong this postseason.

    I've been a huge critic of Krug's lack of defense his entire Bruins career. It looks like the switch has finally been turned on, he has been outstanding in his own end throughout the playoffs. If he carries this over into next season I'll be a fan.

    So that means you're currently not a fan?

    You also don't like Marchand, right? No judging, just curious.

    Krug is changing my mind with his play but the jury is still out- I want to see him play solid defense during the regular season before deciding. I haven't been a fan, I want my defensemen to play defense and frankly too often that has been an afterthought for Krug, until this post season he's been all offense all the time. He seems to get it now.

    No, I will never like Marchand. I don't care if he scores 100 goals, I do not like nor have I ever liked "pest" hockey players. I wasn't a fan of Ken Linseman, or Esa Tikkanen, or Sean Avery or any of those guys. It's bush league hockey. JMO

    That's a shame. Marchand is an elite talent and is two games away from potentially being a major piece of bringing two cups to Boston.

    It seems like you would rather see a team of PJ Axelssons and Chris Kellys struggle to score goals and win 50% of their games rather than entertaining, high-octane offense that wins 60% of their games.

    After watching this postseason I would say I almost have more respect for Brad. I used to get a bit annoyed by some of the antics, and yeah even a few times it has crossed the line to dirty, but he catches so much crap, and then you watch what STL does on a nightly basis and realize that Brad really is a pest in a world of guys who are predators. And man there is more made of his pest nature than of true predatory actions.

    This is the inconsistency of Torey Krug that people call out. Two games ago has an incredible game and puts up 4 points in a blow out then is the worst defender on the ice for the last 6 periods. Goes from immaculate passing and scoring to completely non existent and insanely turnover prone.

    I hope he dominates the next two games but he’s been nothing short of trash the last two especially 5v5

    I’m so mad I bought into krug for once and the last 6 periods can’t make me wait more for him to be gone
