So no, the "bigger and stronger" theory doesn't fit.
He also does not have the motor of a Hagelin/Callahan player. Never has, even in HS when he had free roam over the entire rink.
Speed and motor are two 100% different things. Asking Kreider to be like Hagelin is like asking Gaborik to be like Callahan or vice-versa.
