Kirk Luedeke was all over this guy when he signed...and has been in love with him since,,told me to keep an eye on him the day after he signed... Here is what he wrote about him May 3rd...


Upside: Blazing wheels, Einstein-like hockey intellect, and the heart of a champion power this pint-sized package of prowess. A power play ace who excels in space, beating opponents 1-on-1 and using his high-end offensive creativity to generate scoring chances from the blue line. Hes a natural leader and winner who inspires teammates with his old-fashioned work ethic and attitude.

Downside: The former Michigan State captain and free agent has a tougher time when the game closes up on him, but the Bs can mitigate that by pairing him with a bigger, more defense-minded player.

Outlook: Krug may not ever rise above the second pairing in Boston, but with his speed, sense and effort levels- could be a key cog on both power play and penalty kill special teams.

Honestly, could he have been any more spot on?
