How anyone can consider Kruger among the top PK forwards in the NHL is beyond me. 38% during the regular season, and 22% in the playoffs in the circles when shorthanded. Yeah...clearly an elite PKer... Give me a break.
Probably has something to do with his playing on the 1st unit of a top 3 PK all year long.

It's almost like killing penalties isn't only about winning faceoffs.

Insanity, I know.
