As for performance thus far (& it changes weekly because of the bipolar nature of that team), exelby, trotman, cross & warsofsky. Obviously things change & i still like krug, but i think he needs to work his way back up the depth chart, like bartkowski & cohen have been unable to do. Before the season, i was thinking krug-miller would be the 1st pair, but they have underwhelmed &/or been injured. Still haven't come close to giving up on them. And i know cross & trotman are brand new with small sample sizes as well.
I would just personally reward good work in provo during the lockouy as opposed to giving spots to previous frontrunners like caron & kryg despite mediocre at best performances in providence.
But i trust claude to run a camp & thin the herd.
My personal vote is exelby. 3 straight years not sniffing the nhl, manning up & paying his dues all over again & the most solid d-man on that team. The d prospects i like still have plenty of waiver exemption left & old favorites like bart, cohen & button are now also-rans.
All for krug surprising me, though. Hope he does
