2) Seems like a few people are rooting for Kreider to fail, judging by the venom at anyone that tries to explain his poor stats in a positive light.
If you'd been reading some of the reports about his play though--posters have been saying he's been playing very good defense especially backing up Gilroy who is getting caught up the ice a lot and keeping in mind that Dylan is a first year pro and just back from a serious knee injury. The Rangers have plenty of skill on their back line--they don't have a real mean edge though apart from Stu Bickel--a player a lot of posters here don't like. McIlrath seems to have enough skill but even so skill isn't everything.
