torts is afraid that playing him big minutes and having him cause turnovers or some crap like that is going to tank his confidence any more than benching him for 55:30 of a game where his offensive skills are needed. logically you'd play to a player's strengths and put him out in situations where the offense is needed. torts doesn't do that. he doesn't want to give kreider time to play and learn up here. he thinks it'll take too long and his precious season will be wasted... but apparently we're losing games anyway. it's time to let the kids play.
this is the same reason that our powerplay doesn't work. tortorella basically said str8 up that he doesn't know anything about his players that they don't tell him flat out. he didn't know about boyle playing wing or d or some crap like that or bickel playing forward. didn't know del zotto didn't know how to play defense either apparently. he has no idea how to handle skill kids and this is why we don't develop average top 6 in house. just grinders.
hurt the development of dubinsky, anisimov, del zotto, and stepan... kreider coming down the same path. going to probably end up ruining thomas' future in the league just like zucc's because he doesn't know how to utilize anybody in a game that isn't dump, chase, grind, mash, jam, block shots 24/7. if a guy picks a loose puck up that wasn't obtained through 'hard work' and grinding then he hates them.
