If you want to see more dump-and-chase hockey, errant passes to vacant positions, weak shots that go wide, then I guess this is the right move.
Exactly. Kreider isnt going to be effective if you limit his icetime and never put him in good situations. Im not saying Kreider is a first line player but its been prove in the playoffs and in a few situations that kreider can really be effective when playing with guys like richards
