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.
I'd take 65 points from Kreider and run. That would make him the second highest scorer on our team just most years. How much would you love to have that scoring added to this team right now?
