<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MMBzFan</b></div><div>I’d like to hear that audio, see the video or read the quote were Krug said that. If he did he would have signed already. Virus has nothing to do with it. Contracts have been signed by other teams. No reason to trade Zboril just to get a UFA out of Boston.</div></div>
On the other teams contracts first, the majority are entry-level, GM-housekeeping stuff, whose deadlines are different than the NHL RFAs/UFAs. But yes BOS signed Halak...(more below on BOS's other contract issues).

<em>“Would I take less to stay in Boston, 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,” Krug said. “As long as they want me, I think something could be done, realistically.”</em>

BOS CONTRACTS (cont'd)
* COVID and the potential flat to falling Cap actually have a major part in the signing/non-signing of Krug. Moreover, BOS has three impt NHL-RFA pieces to ink in DeBrusk, Grzz and Bjork.
* Krug <em>does not</em> have to be signed until the last week of June 2020. DS has time and is using all of it - that's prudent and smart...

Why wait - because each day in an NHL-COVID-World is loaded with uncertainty and unknowns.....................

Fact.
Some analytics people did an full report of everything.

I'll start out by saying there is no wrong answer. The debate can rage for days and days, and it would prove nothing. You believe the link ^ ^ and that's great, not a problem - enjoy yourself.

I do not.
And I did not assess anything in the report other than it looked to be remotely conducted by a firm having a junior hockey client.
I don't do analytics and it's <strong>a TOOL but NOT a tell all</strong>

There's an old saying in Science: <strong>GARBAGE IN, GARBAGE OUT!!</strong>
* Have you vetted this "analytical data" yourself for the simple basics like precision and accuracy? I think not.
* Do you know the TRUE source of these points of data (i.e.: who is the original collector, what's their expertise, who pays them, are they accredited, honest....etc. etc. etc).

A person can sample a gold rich quartz vein in one of two ways - one way adheres to strict accuracy and precision and could make us all rich! The other way could put the sampler in jail!!
