The kid lit up Europe. That's promising. He can play defense at the NHL level. That's good for a first year player. What he isn't is some super elite checking center that rivals Pahlsson in his prime. He's solid defensively. He's not Hossa. He's a marginal fourth liner at this point. Pirri is a project top six forward that created more offense in his single NHL game then Kruger has in all of his combined.
I guess that would be correct, if you define creating offense as shooting pucks wide.
