He looks tentative, slow, undecisive, and just not engaged.
He's a rookie. He'll get better. But to act like Boyle and Pyatt are keeping Wayne Gretzky down is disrespectful because honestly, Kreider has shown one of the worst individual efforts of our forward group.
Uh-ha... and when I was saying it based on watching him game in and game out in Hartford, I was getting nothing but hate, being told that I only care about his stats, and don't understand that he's better suited for the NHL than lower levels. This is exactly what I wrote before: tentative, indecisive, poor individual effort, not engaged.
