    Agreed. He didn't look out of place at all. Raises expectations for next year a bit does it not?

    Not bad at all with 18:18 TOI so Julien definitely had Krug out there allot.

    Faster than Kampfer. Might have a future in the NHL. Probably doesn't in this year's playoffs.

    I know it was only one, but the kid made some smart decisions out there, and he certainly wasn't caught doing the play by play,...ala Joe Corvo

    Especially since he is ineligible to play.

    Man Julien was pretty ball-sy putting both Uh oh and Krug out on the same shifts yikes. I was nervous when they were both scrambling with the fore-check bearing down on them. Krug handled that pressure well and almost potted a goal too boot.

    Was at the game and tried to watch the kid as much as I could. Good speed, good decision making in the D zone and despite several failed clearing attempts on one shift, he made the right decision every time. Made smart plays with the puck and honestly I think I'd rather see him than Corvo if it comes down to it.

    Probably CJ did not have too much of a choice with Boychuk (Krugs D partner I believe) going down. Best to ride it out than overplay Seidenberg and Chara which can further expose them to injury.

    That said, Krug looked much more composed than Corvo so congrats to the kid.

    Better than Corvo. And his size really concerns me... Ference is tough for his size and I see him get out-muscled enough.

    Only 1 game, and Julien was careful with matchups as expected. That said, kid didnt look out of place.

    He did look more composed than Corvo. With his size he will clearly get out-muscled but he seemed to position himself pretty well and used his stick well.

    Yes, because NCAA free agents can't sign their contracts until after the deadline, like Turco, they are ineligible for the playoffs,

    Just got home from the game and VERY impressed by Krug
    * smart decisions
    * poise - no panic at all
    * played positionally very well

    I think every pass he made was crisp and right on someone's stick.

    I was impressed.

    Yes he had a pretty good game. Only negative was at times getting rid of the puck too fast and went to Penguin keeping it in the Bruins zone for some pressure. All normal though for his 1st NHL game against one of the best team in a game they must win.
    I loved his release towards the net.

    One thing I would have loved was to see Krug on the PP but then it dawned on me why Ward/Julien didn't put him on the PP.  THE BRUINS PP NEEDS PRACTICE FOR THE PLAYOFFS !!! With their playoff roster.

    Looked pretty composed but his size is going to hurt him on D.

    I didnt understand the whole thing about his signing... NBC was talking about the fact he "chose" Boston to sign with because of their history, and Engblom made a big deal about what a tough choice that was... but if he's so good, why was he undrafted?

    And if he was undrafted because of his size, why was he a sought after free agent?  I dont get it.

    Teams bypass players like this in the draft for the exact reason(s) you indicated (size). Obviously he showed with his good play in college that he earned a chance to show the scouts they were wrong and size hasn't hindered him in competing with bigger players.

    Seems to happen more with smaller players then ones with size. Although players with size and the poor skating stigma attached to them also get bypassed sometimes.

    I think he is a really good skater. Can get out of positions fast to make up for size. I wish he was just a liiitle bit bigger though. Kid impressed me.

    Exactly my reaction kel.  I haven't seen enough to be excited and it seemed like they were going out of their way to give him safe simple passes all night.  And I never saw what I was really curious about -- can he clear out the front of the net when needed?  Can he move guys?

    ...but...he did not look out of place and his speed was noticeable.  He looked more confident than most new guys too.  Composed even.

    Something I don't like to say...  but has anyone every thought of converting him to forward?  And have him play the point on the pp?

    Only a small sample so far in watching him, but his backskating looks almost stride prefect - shame to sacrafice that skill by putting him at forward.

    Anyone who thinks "This kid is a waste of our emotions; he didn't get drafted for a reason" is way off. There's a good amount of players that are late bloomers as players.

    Teddy Purcell, who was killing the B's in the playoffs last year, was undrafted until he signed with the Kings when he was 21.

    Krug is the first defenseman since 1987 to lead the league in scoring.

    Something tells me that this kid will have a pretty solid career.

    Anyone who is completely willing to write off an NCAA kid because he went undrafted, just doesn't know much about hockey. It doesn't happen often, but there have been too many players like Joey Mullen, Dan Boyle, Brian Raflski, CuJo, Martin St. Louis, Ed Belfour, and Dwayne Roloson who have gone this exact same route to discount these types of signings out ofhand.
