Hopefully Jesper's injury isn't too bad and he can continue to excel in Sweden. On the Kreider thing, not sure why everyone's so down on him. A 65-80 maximum and potential first liner is still realistic. Patience.
That's why everyone is "down" on him. Some of us don't see the PPG player in Kreider that other's apparently are. I keep seeing expectations for him are a near PPG, 1st-line W. I see him as a 60-65 point 1st-2nd line tweener with a motor. Nothing terrible, but not a "can't-miss" future perennial NHL All-Star. Guys are expecting him to become the next Corey Perry/Zach Parise 80-point defensive forward, and that's just not reasonable. Erixon looks very much like a future 1st-pair star, and is doing so in the AHL. Kreider is struggling (given his hype) to really distinguish himself in the collegiate ranks.
