Was looking at the Phantoms stats--Schenn is a point per game player but a -13. Couturier is a bit under a point per game. One might think that guys likes that would be really racking up the points as well. It's a team game and the AHL is not always an easy league to play in. I'm sure other teams are aware of Kreider's speed and what he likes to do and it's not just the lack of d-men making stretch passes or playmaking centers. I don't agree that Chris is in Hartford just taking it easy--I just think he needs to figure out how to be more effective. This is a learning experience. Keeping in mind as well--he doesn't have Hagelin racing down the other wing or scoring threats like Gaborik or Richards that other teams are paying attention to and the defense in Hartford is kind of limited.
