He came to the team in the middle of the playoffs. With no training camp, and hardly any team practices. He had basically no time to learn the system. He played on pure adrenaline and hockey smarts. His first game, Ottawa Game 3 (?), he was basically there because of Hagelin's suspension, and because it was either Kreider or John Scott.
He obviously impressed the coach enough to keep him after Hagelin came back. Don't you think Tortorella might have seen something in his game which maybe you didn't pick up? He was on the ice with seconds to go in Game 7 where the Rangers held a one goal lead.
I really recommend watching the Devils series. the Rangers forwards in that series were embarrassing for the most part. Kreider, I'd say, was the best out of them all.
You even had Devils fans saying they were impressed. those guys don't like the Rangers very much, in case you didn't know.
