I think we can successfully rule out Krieder ever becoming a truly elite playmaking, do it all offensive threat (not to say that he can't be a good passer, but he doesn't seem to have the natural vision to rack up 50+ assists every season), but outside of that the sky is really the limit.
Based on his physical tools and work ethic Chris Kreider could end up being the best American to ever lace up his skates or he could end up being an impact player on the level of a player like Jordan Staal.
He could easily end up as one of the best snipers this league has ever seen though if he puts everything together.
Kreider isn't going to get 50+ assists, but then again Stepan wasn't close to that. Kreider will be able to put up at least 25-30 Assists in my opinion, especially if he is playing with Nash or Gaborik. He is a balanced player with great passing, but it is overlooked because of his size, speed, and shot.
