As far as Krueger goes, Rutherford mentioned a while back about how he thought Krueger was good enough to be a #6 defenseman...maybe before training camp last year? I'm not sure exactly when or if that's directly in context, but that's what I think I recall. Either way, Krueger has also gotten buried below other prospects that we have acquired recently, and hasn't gotten a chance as of yet.


A lot of whether or not these guys get chances this year depends on whether or not these supposed trade rumors have legs, and what those rumors actually are. This link from back a little bit in this thread has all of us questioning the legitimacy of said rumors, and what possible trades might occur...whether they be simple moves to remove pieces that don't fit (Stewart), or actual moves that are of significant consequence (Pitkanen, McBain, etc).

Either way, It's going to be a rather interesting training camp for the Canes this year.
Thanks. I appreciate the insight!
