Every year players go from looking like career AHLers to solid NHLers. And the number keeps growing.
The Kreider "bashers" have me in hysterics. Kreider today is better w/o question than the following NHL's on Team USA.

Palmieri, Stapleton, Skille, and Gaustad. Just flat out better than those four NHL players. He is also light years better than Yan "Why are you calling me Paul" Stastny.

I would go rogue if I was Gordon and put JVR AT CENTER with Kreider and watch them steamroll opponents.
