Not making excuses for Kreider as he does have to get his crap together. But part of the problem the first 2 games was Torts trying to fit a square peg (Gaborik) in a round hole (asking him to play LW)
This was done in an effort to try to force chemistry between Nash and Richards which is a mistake. Chemistry is not forced. It's there or it's not.
Nash has played LW more extensively than Gaborik has throughout their careers, if anything Gaborik should have stayed at Richards RW and Nash on Stepan's LW and if you wanted to change things up at a later date, you do that.
It's no coincidence that Gabby got back on the score board when put back on the RW last night.
Arnott is not the answer.
Playing Kreider with a plugger like Boyle is NEVER going to help the kid develope offensively. Still and all, the kid needs to be better in his own zone.
