Start Kreider off on the 4th line and let him work his way up.
Yes, this is the one bright spot in terms of injuries. Everytime I see another I am a bit upset, but then think "well at least another young guy will get a chance".

My only disagreement really is that if Kreider doesn't make one of the top 3 lines out of camp, I would rather see him start in the AHL to learn the pro game. 4th line minutes is less than oideal for a young player to start at. On the other hand, Torts does tend to roll his lines and Avery/Prust are decent line mates, so you may have a point. I think Kreider might need a little AHL seasoning though, didn't seem hurt the hobbit any.
