Miller might make mistakes, but he's looked basically the same one shift to the next. Kreider has not. That's why Miller stays and Kreider doesn't. For Tortorella, developing a guy as an NHLer is all about professionalism. Consistency from one shift to the next is part of that. Once Kreider shows that, he'll stick. Not until then.
To be fair he really hasnt had much of a chance. He has only played a handful of games with limited icetime and also has had to deal with an ankle injury for the bestter part of 2 months
