I view him as a tweener, not enough offense to play top 6 and too soft and weak to play bottom 6, especially when up against those prospects.

He goes to RFD and plays top 6 for a few seasons to get his offensive game up to speed, may be his only hope to stick in this league. He may be able to develop that game in Chicago but it won't be easy if he's doing 4th line duties.
no, you haven't said WHY it would be better for him playing in the AHL that has AHL talent now more than ever over the NHL against NHL talent.

You are right that Krüger won't be on the 4th line in 2-3 years. He will be in the Top9 or a team will pay in a trade for him, a trade that benefits the Hawks more than the other team.

Krüger could have played in the SEL too, they wanted to get chemistry going between him, Shaw & Jayes early. He is better than last year because of the experience he gained last year in the NHL & POs + an offseason to get better. NEVER EXPECTED SOMETHING ELSE if he played the lockout in Sweden, Germany or Rockford
