Its really hard to score when you start so far away from where the puck needs to go

I base Kruger's lack of offensive game on observation of what he does with the puck in the O-zone. I see no slick stickhandling, certainly not a big shot, just not many offensive instincts/skills, regardless of where his shifts start or end.

It's funny that someone indicated that play was demonstrative of Kruger's good hands when it actually supports exactly the opposite.

Kane screw some of them up? Yup, Sharp screw some of them up? Yup. But there's also plenty of evidence of them finishing a whole bunch of 'em. Kruger?
