Torey Krug told reporters last week that he would take less to remain a member of the Boston Bruins. Krug is slated to become an unrestricted free agent next summer and could command a big ticket on the open market. He’s played his entire career in Boston and ideally would like to remain a Bruin.
“Would I take less to stay in Boston?” Krug answered rhetorically during the first day of the NHL/NHLPA preseason media tour last Thursday. “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. I think something that’s fair will be able to be worked out both ways. As long as they want me, I think something could be done, realistically. Everyone does it. How much they do, is kind of their own opinion and [dependent] on their own circumstances.”
Krug again addressed the media on Thursday after the Boston Bruins reported for training camp. There were no new details on negotiations. Krug is looking for clarity, and said the as of right now it is “status quo” and that there have been no new talks in the last week.
