The Boston Bruins are healthy and making a serious run for the Stanley Cup.
While the majority of the roster will stay together for another run next year, they might lose a big piece of their core.
Defenseman Torey Krug will be UFA after this season and there's tons of speculation that he'll test the free agent market.
We heard speculation earlier in the year that Krug isn't willing to take a hometown discount and wants to get paid considering this is the last chance to sign a big contract.
According to Shawn Hutcheon of The Fourth Period, Krug is looking for an six year deal worth $8million a season.
It would make Krug the highest paid player on the Bruins and would likely be what Krug is able to get on the open market.
Would you sign Krug to this type of deal?
Earlier in week, I tweeted that #NHLBruins Torey Krug's next contract could be in range of $8M per season. Compared to other Dmen, statistically, it is market value. Since, sources close to the situation have informed me that Krug is asking for 6-year deal worth $49M.
