The Kreider Thread (1/22: Kreider fine, skating at practice)

Theres a a bit of a debate about whether or not to start Kreider opening night.

He hasn't had a stellar start in the AHL, and some would say that the Rangers should keep him down there to get more seasoning ala Cally, Girardi, Anisimov, (gonna miss watching him this year).

I don't necessarily disagree with that, but I feel that Kreider is one of those players that thrives off of having higher skilled players around him and a quicker pace.

Obviously, he can't **** the bed completety in camp otherwise it's an easy decision to make for Torts. But I almost feel that it's better for his development if he plays in a higher, more speed driven league to help build his great skating ability, right off the bat here.
