Kruger doesn't bring enough nastiness to the fourth line. I think our centers down the middle will eventually be something like:

Toews
Pirri
Danault
McNeill

Not sure if Bolland stays for the long term, with injury or replacement moving him out. Only problem might be the light winger (Kane or Teravainen) who ends up playing with Pirri considering the defensive side. Depends on how serious Pirri is about improving his defensive play. This year will be interesting. However, there's no way Kruger has enough offfensive ability to hold down the 2C. McNeill also hasn't shown enough offensively for role, though "big guys take longer to develop", so one never knows...
