I am usually a guy who will say let the kids play and make their mistakes, but in Kreider's case, he looks lost. He's out of position, he's hardly moving his feet and he's a second too slow on everything he does.

I'd be fully in favor of sending him to Hartford if I wasn't completely convinced that Gernander's the one who ****ed with his head to the point it is now. We had a kid who was aggressive in the offensive zone and making things happen last playoffs, but who would make mistakes on his defensive coverage - in part because he was so aggressive. Now, he's been so beaten down that he stands around the ice trying to figure out where he should be and winds up being way too passive on BOTH ends of the ice.

If they Grachev him I'm gonna freak.
