Krog is a career minor league player...always has been, always will be and he knows this.

But hey...it beats collecting shopping carts at Target

ah yes. Canucks threw the "Oh we'll give you a legit shot at our NHL club and we want you be up here" spheal last year. He almost won the Calder.... CUP that is.

He'll light it up in the AHL.

Has an underrated shot and is a pretty slick passer. Could be a 4th line PP specialist.

He'll make more than that in the AHL. Last year he made 750k playing in the minors.

Wasn't that because he signed a 1-way deal last yr? He got another minor league deal worth 750K/season?

His 4th line centering abilities bailed me out on NHL 2004 more times than I can count. Bylsma-Krog-Fedorov was the most unbalanced line ever.

Wish him well and about ****ing time he gets a shot at centering Kovalchuk.

Not happening, Krog will only get called up as an injury fill in. The Thrashers NHL roster is mostly set, there is a slot open for 3rd line LW, but that's about it.

I wouldn't mind getting paid to play hockey at any level. Maybe he loves the game. Also, how does it affect you whether he still plays or not?

Unless Peverley poops the bed during camp, Krog's best bet will be unseating Jim Slater from our 4th line.

Krog and Kwiatkowski and true depth signings. Already comfortable with the coach and the style of play, but they won't get the call unless there are injuries.

Both of the posts smack of youth. Give it a few years kids. Having to find a real job sucks. Not everyone can do what they love. Obviously Krog loves hockey and should be applauded for determination.

A player of his talent level probably could top that in the Swiss league.

This is Krog's third time with the Thrashers. He's not going to make it full time...Atlanta has way too many centers in the NHL and in the system to develop to give Krog full time. He's a great guy and will help the kids develop in Chicago and will be a usefull emergency call up. Both times he's been in Atlanta it was a failure.

He should be applauded for continuing to play for NHL orginizations. He's probably realistic about what is expected of him, and that's why he's back in Atlanta.

Agreed, not everyone can be Ovy and Crosby. To play a game for a living, do what you love, and be able to provide some kind of guidance to your fellow man is both admirable and completely fortunate, we should all be so lucky.

LOL I understand being a Krog fan, but you guys treat him like he's some sort of martyr for being an AHL journeyman. Good thing Atlanta continues to hand him chance after chance when he's in reality, a HACK, who won't make the big league and will not know what it means to win anything more than a Calder Cup.

There's no reason to hate on Krog. He's absolutely brilliant in the AHL. That in and of itself should prove that he's not a hack. Sure he can't cut it in the NHL, but racking up massive amounts of points in the AHL is still an impressive feat. I certainly couldn't do it, and he deserves some credit for staying in North America and trying to make it to the NHL. He'll probably never be an NHL regular, but at least the man still has the drive to try.

Krog was a decent 4th liner in Anaheim from 02-04; his only two seasons as an NHL regular. He's not a career minor leaguer like some guys, because he actually was a regular at one point.

At lot of time has passed since then, though, so the chances that he sticks this year aren't great.

lol grow up, go to work, hate your job. You'll learn to appreciate fortunate situations like Krog's.

I honestly know nothing Hansen, but if he can PK, it would be win/win. I like the idea of offloading Thorburn; he's not what ATL needs (doesn't kill penalties). It frees up a spot on the 4th line for Crabb and moves an unnecessary piece.

I'd take Rypien over Thorburn any day of the week. Size is overrated. Rypien uses his body and is by far the most energetic forward we have on our team.

Hansen is also worth more than Thorburn.
