Which is fine, he was a rookie thrown into the NHL playoffs with no pro experience, but don't sit here and act like he played amazing, because he didn't.
As a rookie, against playoff compeitition, Kreider proved he can be a scoring threat. Yet in the fairytale world you live in, he was just 'ok'.

Almost every time he was on the ice, play-by-play announcers would praise him for his nifty plays. Or his back-checking. Or his active stick. Or his play along the boards. Or his impressive shot. Blazing speed.

Kid's not going to be a superstar, but he's going to be a damn good player. And he was more than just "OK" in the playoffs.

I truly don't think you watched more than a few shifts of him. Just, an opinion.
