Torey Krug isn’t coming to Detroit; he signs with St. Louis

Per the Associated Press:

Defenseman Torey Krug, one of the top prizes in this year’s free-agent class, has agreed to a seven-year contract worth $45.5 million with the St. Louis Blues, the team announced Friday night.

A blue-line staple for the Bruins, Krug, 29, has spent his entire NHL career with Boston, playing in 523 games. A quarterback of the power play, he has 67 career goals and 337 points.

Now that it’s over, let’s be honest, fellow Wings fans:

Krug wanted to win and wanted to make a mint. The Wings couldn’t offer him both aspects of his free agency desires, so let him go.

Sometimes we don’t get all the guys we want to get.— George Malik (@georgemalik) October 10, 2020
