So the excuse for Kreider went from "the team doesn't want him to try hard in Hartford so he doesn't risk injury" to the direct opposite "the team forced him in Hartford to play through injury"?

Both excuses are equally preposterous. On the one hand, no team would tell a player he doesn't have to try hard and doesn't need to try to develop as a player when he's 21 years old and has only a few games in the pros under his belt. On the other, a team would not risk a serious problem just to have their #1 prospect play in the minors.

People are clutching at straws here to hold on to their predictions that he'll be a 25-30 goal scorer in his first season. (Even the "pessimists" were predicting he'll score 20+ goals this year.)
