Kreider has always reminded me of Tony Amonte, in a big frame. And frankly, it's the frame that makes him very interesting. There simply aren't that many 6'3, 225-230 pound guys who can move like he moves.

I don't think Kreider will be a superstar. In other words, I don't see 50 goals and 100 points out of him. However, if we're fortunate, he'll have a very similar career to the previously mentioned Amonte.
I see him as being a 28-33 goal 65-70 point guy. How much better can you expect from a mid 1st round pick? (provided those are his consistent #s?)
