I understand people want Kreider to be this dominating offensive force.

He's 19 years old, and he's developing an overall game that will translate to the Pro game.

There are steps that need to be taken by players who want to develop right.

He's learning his two way game. Offense starts from transition. Making plays in the defensive zone and neutral zone that translate to success in the offensive zone.

When he's up with the Rangers, this two way gane is going to gain Tortorella's confidence in using him in more situations, increasing his ice time, increasing his versitility, increasing his role with the club.

With that foundation, nd his natural skills, he will develop the offensive game as he gains more confidence at the next level.

Look at Dubinsky, Callahan, Staal, Anisimov.

Foundation for the game first. Offebsive production next. Then taking it to the next level as the player matures.

19 years old.

Drafted 19th overall, not first, not second.

He will be more then fine.
