Hes not going to be a star, hes not going to be a 40/40 guy. Theres only a handful of players in the league these days capable of those numbers and their performance pops out in regards to everything they do. Those expectations/predictions for Kreider were as unfair then as they are now.
One of those guys who may always leave you wanting more.
The speed and skill say 40-40, but if you look at his production in college and a half year in AHL it doesn't transalte to the scoresheet.
That's not a knock at all... A 50 point player with that kind of speed is a valuable commodity. We'll have two of them IMO as I think Hagelin will eventually be a 20 goal scorer also.
