One of the biggest topics of conversation across Boston Bruins' land right now is the contract situation of Torey Krug.
In case you've been living under a rock, Krug will be an unrestricted free agent after this season and many believe the B's defenseman will walk.
Technically if the Bruins and general manager Don Sweeney make a move or two they can fit Krug under the cap but they'd likely be handcuffed for quite awhile when it comes to the salary cap.
One of the greatest Bruins defensemen of all time was asked about Krug's situation and he hopes the B's are able to keep him.
Ray Bourque recently spoke with The Athletic and here's what he had to say about the situation.
"I certainly know he would love that and the Bruins would love that, too, but the business side of it might make it hard for that to happen, because of the success and how Torey has really flourished into a top-notch defenseman on both sides of the ice," Bourque said. "He’s a special player. He’s such a competitor. He’s a great kid. He’s a great Bruin. He wants to be a Bruin. You watch that team play and you can see the joy and the fun that they have playing together and the chemistry that team has. You’ve got to look at the top and with that leadership group that they have is a special one with Patrice (Bergeron), (Zdeno Chara), (David) Krejci and that core that they’ve had with Tuukka (Rask), (Brad) Marchand and all those guys. And Torey’s a big part of that now too. I’d love to see him sign here."
What do you think of Bourque's comments?
