Last year, I noticed his speed probably once or twice a game. This year I've noticed it maybe once or twice all together. He's skating alright, but not the way that he's capable of. He's been physical but not strong. Dude is a physical freak and he almost never wins puck battles.

I agree about Boyle taking dumb penalties too, but Boyle isn't supposed to be a huge difference maker on offense. Kreider is and he's failing at that miserably. Miller has been far better than Kreider in my opinion. He makes mistakes, but he hustles all the time, he hits hard, he takes shots. With Kreider it's not just about taking a penalty, it's about not playing hard enough and then taking a penalty. If you're a liability on two fronts like that, someone else is going to get your ice time. I'm fine with that. He needs to start playing harder in every facet of the game.
