If you listened to our Get The Puck Out Podcast episode from September 11th, you would have heard what Pierre McGuire just confirmed; The Montreal Canadiens are ALL IN on Torey Krug. Krug has a great relationship with current Montreal head coach Claude Julien from his Boston days as well as is very cool with fellow Michigan boy Jeff Petry. Pierre is the plug whether you like him or not, and these whispers will only get louder as we progress towards the offseason. Krug would command 7.5-8.5 million dollars annually, a figure that is chump change to Montreal ownership.
McGuire on TSN1200 talking Krug/Canadiens: "They've also talked about getting Torey Krug in, I don't know if that's going to work out…Petry would know Krug very well, another Michigan guy."
Looks like the Canadiens will be targeting Krug in UFA.
