A hockey player doing whatever he can to help his team win. That's a role suitable for his first full year until he proves he's more valuable over the other players ahead of the depth chart.

Everybody knows Kreider's not a bottom-6 guy. This is a good role for him for early on though. Let him crawl before he walks. If he proves he's too good for that role, all it takes is a couple of seconds to tweak things, which Torts will obviously do over and over against our wills.

I think Kreider moves up around the 10-15 game mark if he starts on the third line. I think Hagelin's offensive numbers last year are a little, unrealistic. Would love to be proven wrong though.
