There’s no question that Kruger is weak on his skates and gets outmuscled regularly but I much prefer the role he has now as a 4th liner who in tandem with Frolik has been effective at killing penalties. As we all know, his face off performance needs to improve. Losing draws in our own end has been rampant on the PK especially - is going to bite us badly if it keeps up.

OT, but Bolland is pretty bad at the dot as well …. Toews needs to be giving these guys a clinic at every practice. After Toews, it needs to get much better.
