Since losing Marc Savard to the Bruins, the Thrashers have been desperately searching for a centre to provide some offensive punch. Meanwhile, Jason Krog has been lighting it up with the Wolves, notching 112 points during the regular season and adding 25 points in 16 playoff games. Anybody who saw Krog play In the B.C. junior loop with the Chilliwack Chiefs could tell he was an offensive wizard. He went on to win the 1999 Hobey Baker Award for being the top player in U.S. college hockey but for some inexplicable reason was never drafted. Still, Krog scratched his way to the NHL and in 2003 played a major role in helping Anaheim get to the Stanley Cup final. Standing 5-foot-11 and weighing more than 180 pounds, there's no reason why Krog's size should be an issue. So, what's he doing stuck down on the farm?
I honestly believe Krog was signed to compete for scoring minutes.

Consider the sagacious Mike Toth:
