“Torey Krug said that he is willing to take a pay cut to stay with the Boston Bruins so there is no reason that the defensemen shouldn’t be apart of the team’s future plans.
One of the major questions this offseason is what will the Bruins do with Torey Krug? The defensemen is entering the final year of his contract and is poised to get a major payday.

Krug had an amazing season for the Bruins last year. He is just a points machine. Last year Krug had a career-high 47 assists.
There is no doubt that Torey Krug is one of the best defensemen in the league. He is an absolute weapon on the power play and always seems to find the open man.
Because of his size, Krug has to work hard in his own zone, but I would say that he does a quality job of helping out Tuukka Rask. There’s really not a lot more you could ask from the guy.
The Bruins are a better team with Krug on the roster. If somehow he left, the defense would take quite the hit.
So B’s fans are definitely going to be happy when they hear what Krug had to say.
"“Would I take less to stay in Boston?” Krug says. “It’s something that I’ve talked about with my family and my agent. It’s something I’m interested in. How much less — that’s a question that will be answered at a certain time. I think something that’s fair will be able to be worked out both ways. As long as they want me, I think something could be done, realistically. Everyone does it. How much they do it, is kind of their own opinion and [dependent] on their own circumstances."
Now, this is just why hockey is such an amazing sport. You can’t even imagine a top player doing this in the NBA or the MLB.
If Torey Krug ends up on any other team than the Bruins I will be upset. Krug has put the ball firmly in the front office’s court. A failure to reach a deal will clearly be their fault.
