I think that a few of the forwards go to the net at opportune times, but it could be much improved. So many times in games this season, there are rebounds to be had, screens to be made, and it often does not happen. Am I saying that Tortorella knows nothing about positional hockey? Of course not.
If you take my post literally, I clearly state that I wish more forwards would do what Kreider is doing, even if they are not as talented it is still helps to complete plays.
Perhaps we just disagree on this, and that would be fine too.
