Kreider hasn't been given a chance to earn anything. He's been juggled all over the place and gotten very limited minutes. I do think he looks tentative out there, but I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that he's afraid of making a mistake and being nailed to the bench. I'd like to see him get a full game or two playing with Stepan, but Torts doesn't seem willing enough to stick with him for that.
