The value is fairly similar, but I still think Kruger has a lot of room to grow. Certainly not the worst proposal I've seen on these boards recently. Don't think Chicago is receiving enough in this deal though.
Kruger is a whipping boy for many Hawks fans due to plethora of reasons. He was handed a NHL spot without earning it, put in a 2C role by coach Q that he was ill suited for etc.

I am neutral towards Kruger and want to give him a chance. If he develops properly, IMO he can take over the 3C role of Bolland, if Bolland becomes too expensive to sign 2 years from now. For that reason alone I don't want to trade Kruger just yet.
