- THE ATHLETIC envoie Torey Krug au CHAMP GAUCHE.
- Selon le média traditionnel...
- Les Islanders semblent l'option la plus logique..
- PARFAIT TIMING pour que Marc Bergevin soumette son offre hostile à Mathew Barzal!!!!
If there is a gap in terms of the impact of Pietrangelo and longtime Boston puck-mover Torey Krug, it’s probably smaller than people think. Krug isn’t as physically imposing as Pietrangelo and is a left-hand shot, but Krug’s a proven playoff performer who can jumpstart an offense and revitalize a moribund power play averaging almost 27 power play points a season for the past four years. He has averaged 53 points over those four seasons and is sixth among NHL defensemen during that period in points produced. Would he be a boon to a team like the New York Islanders have an obvious need for a dynamic defensive presence? Asked and answered. And Islanders ownership is on record saying they believe their franchise can become a destination for free agents, something that hasn’t been the case in a long time. Landing a gem like Krug would be a big-time statement. Look at the final four teams outside of the Islanders. Shea Theodore, Miro Heiskanen, John Klingberg, Mikhail Sergachev, Victor Hedman are all elite puck-moving defenders. Go further to include Cale Makar, Quinn Hughes and Roman Josi. The key to generating offense in this NHL is from the back end, and Krug is arguably the top free agent in that department.
