My hope is that Isles management is more concerned with keeping Barzal, Pulock and Toews before going out and getting new guys, especially guys we don't really need like Barrie or will be way too expensive like Krug. Besides, our biggest needs are at forward anyways. If we somehow do have the means to spend big in free agency, I'd rather get a guy like Evgeny Dadonov or Craig Smith rather than another defenseman</div></div>
People don’t realize that any defenseman that comes to the isles will see their numbers take a hit.
Krug would be an upgrade on the powerplay, but he wont have a Pasternak or a Marchand, so will he be as effective and put up as many points. Most likely not . Add to the fact that he’ll be 30 and on the decline, it’s not worth it.
