For two years, I was writing again and again on this forum that people shouldn't expect crazy things from Kreider. Not only did a lot of people have him penciled in for top-6 next year, several people last summer were talking of him as our first line LW in this current season instead of going to college.

Reasonably speaking, he could have only been expected to be big and fast, and learn the rest over the next 2-3 years. That's what he was: big and fast. He was also nervous, but hopefully that goes away in the next couple of games as he adjusts to some things in the NHL.

I think we just got ourselves a competent third liner for the playoffs. The problem is that the last two years, everyone expected him to come in as an immediately 30-goal scorer.
