Kreider is not a Tortorella favorite.
Simple, Kreider is way more skilled than Miller

I kid! I kid!

But seriously, huge double standard. I think Torts trusts his own mind when it comes to which players buttons he can push, and how to push them, and who to lay off. The thing with Kreider is that Torts has no confidence in him in the defensive zone. Kreider and his linemates take a defensive shift that is a complete **** show, the game gets close, they don't see anymore ice.

He'd be much better off playing consistent top-6 minutes in the AHL. At this point, as long as Nash and Asham are hurting, it's time to bring up Newbury, or Segal and let Kreider go down.

I mean, when CT came up and played that one game I thought he outplayed Miller, yet no hesitation to get Thomas back to the AHL when Powe came back. I thought he earned a second game.
