That's why you watch the games and not the stats.

You are just a hater and can't admit when being wrong.
In case you missed it, nobody is against Stalberg anymore other than biased TOR hater Ike who wasn't seen since the lockout.
Krüger is really fast enough and he was faster than others were. I still see his takeaway while the other team was on a breakaway. Krüger has been great so far in the Bottom6 where he belongs.

You think he should be in the AHL learning the NA game, don't you? Would want to know the same from Bobby... Should he be send down to the AHL or is he a NHL player?
In the role Kruger has now, I’m okay with it. He is not getting the ice time or the PP time he was last season and is playing on the 4th line adequately. Is he the perfect 4th liner, far from it but he can check and as I said earlier he and Frolik are doing a decent PK job so far. We still need to shore up those lost face-offs though and his lack of physicality is not ideal either.

As for the question from Bubba: If Kruger has visions of one day playing a top 6 role in the NHL, then yes, I think a stint in the AHL playing that role would be of benefit to his career. That 4th line role in Chicago might not last, with players like Denault, McNeil and Flick in the system.
