Maybe JT has the instructions of "go out and play" that CK had during the playoffs last year and CK is more checked into the system now, but I just don't see the same kid who was our best forward in a few games last year. I realize he was hurt and has only played a handful of games, but where's the guy from the playoffs?
Yeah, I wish Kreider would be more assertive. I think it is part of the learning process for him, trying to digest the play when he is on the ice, but from the rather viewings of Kreider I've had he seems to be at his best when he plays instinctively rather than reacting to the play.
