I never mentioned the WJC's or the AHL.
I just know that when he played a lesser role in College his numbers were low. As he started to play a more meaningful role, his numbers got better.
Following that, he was inserted into an NHL line-up (in the PO's) and posted very respectable numbers there while playing with other NHL talents. First few games he looked a bit out of place, but as the PO's went on, he got better and better. Was one of the better Rangers players in the Conference Finals.
Not having any legit playmakers in Connecticut is one of the reasons they are struggling (in addition to an atrocious defence)
When Kris Newbury is the teams leading scorer it says alot about the overall talent level the team has.
Now, you can ignore the significant lack of offensive talent if you wish. That is your right. But it's not going to take away the fact that the team is challenged offensively and Kreider is (in addition to not playing very well) suffering from it.
what were you expecting from him, if you don't mind me asking?
