The only thing that concerns me about Kreider is that big minutes aren't a guarantee. If he's not on the top line with linemates that give him the opportunity to develop his offensive game, it's going to be a wasted year.

From what I've read, he got 3rd line minutes last season with some special teams duty sprinkled in. York seems to work on a seniority-based system as far as playtime goes, so hopefully Kreider will get tons of ice as a junior. Otherwise, there was no reason for him to go back.

It would seem that he already has the defensive part of his game in order, and we've seen what he can do when he has linemates with some offensive awareness. It all depends on what role York gives him this year, but I certainly hope he got assurances from BC that he'll be one of the go-to guys in the scoring department, and be paired with players that will support his development.
