I'm not sure whether or not you're implying that Kilger is a mucker/grinder, but he sure as hell isn't. He's a huge guy with good speed, yet he plays the puck instead of smashing his opponent into the boards on about 90% of his plays. Either that, or he throws a half-assed shoulder bump.
Kilger is no grinder, and he's no scorer. He's nothing. He needs a trip to the AHL as soon as any guy on this team. If no one picks him up off waivers, nothing would do him better than to have Jarvis lean on his ass for a dozen games or so, making him earn his icetime in Hamilton. Then we'll see how badly this guy wants to play in the NHL.
