I could definitely see Krueger being back in the NHL.

One thing nobody has ever doubted about him was his intelligence.

He had a crappy squad in his brief stint as head coach and still managed to be better than 6 other NHL teams... better than the Oilers have done in years... (low bar I know).

I think Krueger would be an excellent GM/advisor type of individual as he's seen hockey at both the international and NHL levels and with his positivity and "guru" reputation I think he could be a big part of helping push an organization forward to another level.

I could see him being brought into a team looking to make that next step up... contenders trying to make legit stabs at a Stanley Cup... he could probably be the guy to give that final push needed to deliver the big prize.

Honestly his talents and abilities are probably somewhat wasted on a team perennially rolling around in the basement.
