Boston is in a good enough spot to where they can afford to let Krug walk, even if they do have the cap space.
I feel Grzelcyk can easily step into Krug's role on the 2nd pair and still be successful. Krug didn't play against top lines regularly so it shouldn't be too much of a step up for Grz. The real test would be on the PP where Krug thrived. McAvoy looks primed to take that spot, but if they want to keep him on PP2 to reserve his minutes for 5v5 and the PK, Grz can step in and just feed the puck to the Big 3 and just remain competent.
Lauzon, Vaakanainen, Zboril or even John Moore should be able to play 3rd pair minutes, so it's not like they're completely barren if they let Krug walk, which I think they should.
