Kreider should talk to Ben Smith

Ben hates life in the AHL. Says his day is full of hockey. he is either practicing, playing or traveling to it. He says he misses BC and the world it opens up for a kid. He misses going to class, doing homework, debating topics and learning. He lived a diverse life at BC and now it is one dimensional. He is unhappy.

Kreider should talk to his buddy Stepan. Ask him about life in the NHL. Even if Kreider goes to the AHL,he won't be there very long. He can ask McDonagh about that. Just like Wisconsin the school, BC the school is not going anywhere. They can finish their school work at a later date.

Ben Smith is not a National Hockey League player. He is a professional hockey player. What did he expect to do playing pro hockey? Practice. Travel. Play games. Your job is to play hockey. He gets paid $65,000 to play in the AHL. He got $160,000 as a signing bonus. He was a 5th round pick. Did he expect to play in the NHL this season? He got into 3 NHL games this season. 21 points in 50 AHL games.
