Reading this thread makes it seem like the guy will rack up a lot of points in the NHL, but that might be bias... Idk.
I'm a sens fan, and a lot of people say the same about Jacob silvberg, but idk.
I'm in a long term hockey pool, and I'm "rebuilding" so rookies are important to me. We have 2 rookie slots that are basically benched players, but this year, I had RNH so obviously next year he will be quite good for me.
My question is this:
is Kreider gonna be a top line point getter in his sophmore season? Or is he a 55 point guy?
Cuz right now, for next year, I have 2 spots open, and from looking at the rookies for 2012-2013, other than the big three guys going at the top of this years draft, I can't find many guys who have the potential to truly be top line players on decent teams, playing with good players.
Let me know guys, thanks.
IMHO his floor is 25/30 and his ceiling is 40/50. So he should fall somewhere in between that. I see him as Keith Tkachuk with a better shot and faster.
