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?
Nash package = nothing but speculation.
Burning 1 yr of Kreider's ELC; also speculation, however likely, Kreider could still go back for his senior year but assuming he doesn't he could still just sign an ATO, and even if he does burn a year, i doubt it's a big deal because for Sather to make that decision, the scouting staff is gonna have to be pretty confident in Kreider's ability to jump in and make an immediate impact and I'll trust the scouts in that judgement. what ever happens, happens.
