I think Rangers fan see Kreider as a 25-30 goal scorer. In fact, we've always seen him like that.

I don't see how a subpar quarter of a season in the AHL nullifies those expectations.

Personally, I think Kreider just misses being in college and having fun. The first year out of college always sucks for everybody. The kid went from playing for a dominant winning team and busted his ass graduating college in three years to play in the NHL, and all of a sudden he finds himself on a garbage team instead of playing for the Rangers.

But like I said before, I really could care less about the friggin AHL. Kreider isn't expect to be some savior on the Rangers. He's going to get plugged into a great team environment, a winning environment and a coach and organization who's supported him from day one.
