I would think the Ranger management is smart enough not to do this to Kreider. It will be a similar situation in what the Islanders did to Nino this season playing 4th line with Pandolfo and Reasoner. We all know how disastrous that turned out to be
They aren't the same situations at all. Nino is a year younger and they had him up the whole year when he clearly still should have been in juniors. They wasted a year of his development.

Kreider is more ready for the NHL. One game playing on the 4th line won't hurt him. At this point, any playing time he gets, on whatever lines, is a bonus.
