Almost weekly there are some posters who cannot let CK enjoy his stay at BC without some snide comment about his studies and he should of turned pro almost immediately after draft, and than lambasting Jerry York as a buffoon who knows nothing about game of hockey. The dichotomy is startling
While I agree to a certain extent, there is a little more hype behind a first round pick and a 6th round pick. Hence the added pressure on Kreider to turn pro.
