To be fair, those 40/40 predictions were few and far between. I've always believed his upside is similar to Max Pacioretty's. 30-ish goals and 60-ish points in his best seasons. Patches was more Brandon Dubinsky than 35/35 guy until he finally put it all together after several unremarkable professional seasons.
You have to think that Kreider is feeling the pressure a little bit. After the impact he made in the post-season, the bar has been set insanely high -- not only by the fans but by the media and the Rangers personnel as well. Betwen McGuire's "star being born on broadway" comments and Nash's "He has all the tools to be a superstar" quote the other day, I can't even begin to imagine what's going on in his head. However, I think we owe it to him to give him more than two games before we come to any conclusions about where his upside ultimately is.
