Having Kreider play this season will burn one year of his ELC, but considering that Sather was willing to give all that up for another offensive threat on the left wing, and the fact that Kreider is widely considered NHL ready, AND the fact that Kreider is a left winger, what the hell does one year off an ELC matter if bringing CK in for the playoffs improves our chances for a Stanley Cup?
If they want to bring him in he'd need to be brought in ASAP.
If I was certain that I wanted to put him on the team for the playoffs.
I'd sign him. Put him right away on a conditioning stint in the AHL, and then have him play the rest of the regular season in a 3rd/4th line role...
