If you watched him consistently since being drafted it's very easy to understand the hype.
I've seen him plenty. I see size, speed, and a good shot. Thats it. I see a clear lack of hockey IQ, a clear lack of being able to generate offense, and a clear lack of consistent production over any decent sample-size.

Those add up to someone who is IMO not an elite-level prospect. Elite level prospects playing in North America(juniors, college) almost always produce offense when they are in juniors or college. Kreider didnt consitently do that, yet alot of people seem to think that its magically going to change when he gets to the NHL.
