I could see both these things happening, particularly Kreider.
I would love for him to be a Nash/Gaborik level player but maybe he's just more like a Ryan Callahan-level or Andrew Ladd-level player (I know, different skill set, just saying that tier of guy, a plus 2nd liner, but not an elite first liner).
