In your opinion, is this Kreider finally showing what he is capable of and what was expected from him and what has kept him in the top 50 Prospects in the world?

I'm happy he's finally posting the kind of numbers that were expected.
I have to disagree with your wording here. "Finally" indicates that Kreider hasn't been up to snuff in the past, and I don't see it. Given the structure at BC, it's been clear to me that Kreider would have a very clear and discernable development arc that isn't entirely based on his own physical gifts or talent. When he's been in other situations (such as the WJC or WC) the inhibitors imposed upon him at college tend to go away. Now that ability is being translated at school with an expanded role.
