Rangers lose the player without any compensation. I would bet the house they come after Kreider with "max" signing that the ELC will offer. Or Else "See Ya" . Oh by the way ,no team would ever take him on a trade wioth the same signign risks.
Is that why columbus was so adamant that he be included in a deal for Nash? Is that why Sather was so adamant in not including him?

Kreider is not a signing risk. The "risk" has been entirely fabricated by fans who can't understand how a kid could be a fan of one team but play professionally for another, despite the fact that thousands of players have done just that over the past 100 years.

The number of players who have refused to sign with the team that drafted them is very, very small. And there have been no indications whatsoever that Kreider has any intention of not signing. Again, that has been entirely fabricated by fans simply because Kreider is a bruins fan.
