Jason Krog enters the big top

I know I know, you are excited to finally nickname someone "Krogger".

An interesting pick up, here's his story in handy dandy bullet format:

- Native of Fernie, B.C.
- 1999 Hobey Baker Award winner, 238 points (94G, 144A) in four years at UNH
- Bounced around between the Islanders, Ducks, Rangers and Thrashers
- Part of the Duck 2002-03 playoff run with 4 pts (3G, 1A)
- AHL MVP last year on the Atlanta AHL affiliate Chicago Wolves
- NHL totals = 175 games (18G, 34A)

Clearly Gillis wants to replace a lost 5'11'' Hobey Baker center (Morrison) with another. Golf clap.

He's another project, but at least one with decent upside. His numbers in college, the Austrian League and the AHL are good but he may be (and I am guessing) too small or too easy to knock off the puck to be effective in the NHL. But if he's injury insurance we could do a lot worse and may be another guy in training camp (along with the likes of Hansen, Shannon, Jaffray maybe even Grabner finally) who can push for a spot on opening night.

So, without knowing much about Krog's contract, life as a Vancouver fan has you anchored to the following reality:


Canucks Offseason - July 11, 2008

Not really sure where it makes the most sense to put Pettinger, Pyatt and Raymond in this mix just yet. I feel like you have to keep Raymond up at least in the top three but now we're moving Pyatt at his expense. A line of Burrows/Kesler/Pettinger would be a hell of a shutdown line if they played well together. Thoughts?
