In an NHL news and rumors update, there are reports coming out of Boston as it pertains to Torey Krug’s negotiations (or lack thereof) with the Boston Bruins and speculation as to what kind of deal Justin Faulk turned down from the Anaheim Ducks.
Bruins and Krug Not Talking Yet
Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports notes that even though the Boston Bruins have taken care of all their restricted free agent housekeeping items for this summer, one big item needs addressing for next summer. That is, an extension for defenseman Torey Krug.
Krug said he and the Bruins haven’t started talking yet, but it doesn’t change how much he wants to be a part of the organization moving forward.
“I’ve made no secret that I want to be part of this room, part of this organization and part of this city . So I’m hoping sooner than later it gets dealt with so I can clear my mind and focus on hockey. But that being said, it’s never a distraction. I’ve done it year after in my career aside from the four-year deal.”
Most reports are that Krug is willing to take a bit of a hometown discount to stay in Boston. That’s good news for the Bruins who managed to get some pretty good numbers on their biggest stars but have back-loaded deals for some.

Justin Faulk Turned Down How Much Money?
As per reports by Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register, the Anaheim Ducks have been unsuccessful in landing Justin Faulk from the Ducks but the deal is not completely dead.
They seem to really want him as they apparently offered an extension valued at $7 million per season over seven seasons.
Teaford writes in his latest column:
Asked specifically about a potential deal with the Ducks, Bartlett said “you never know what can happen.” Faulk must waive his no-trade clause for the Ducks to acquire him. It’s believed the Ducks offered Faulk an extension of a little less than $7 million per season to sweeten the deal.source – ‘Dallas Eakins says Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf is on board with new plan’ – Elliot Teaford – Orange County Register – 09/19/2019
This seems to make it hard to fathom the idea Faulk will wind up in Anaheim. That’s a lot of money to be turning down and it might give pause to other teams interested in acquiring him if the report is accurate.
