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.
I agree that over the first two games Kreider has played poorly and it's nobody's fault but his own. However, i think it's fairly obvious that he cannot be the playmaker on his line. The 3rd line as currently constructed has no playmaker. He can be a force if his confidence grows. Playing on that line is not likely to accomplish that, and that hurts the team.
