Kreider has looked very tentative, I suspect he's trying to please Torts so he doesn't get benched/sent to Hartford. He hasn't yet learned to play in a grind-it-out style. He showed us his talent last year, though, they need to find a place for him and maybe let him work through some mistakes and get his confidence back. The one goal he scored this year was gorgeous.
Remember how this thread last spring was speculating on "would he score 30 this year"? Not too likely now.
