"He's a rookie! Look at Gaborik!" doesn't mean a whole lot. Rookies are expected to contribute something and Kreider is not contributing. Blaming Tortorella and building straw men doesn't change that fact.
no the point is, Krieders mistakes and lack of production are magnified because our star scorer isn't producing. there is no luxury for mistakes. Krieder should be developing in an environment of success led by proven NHL players. when they struggle and refuse to shoot and make passes to ghosts
the patience of coach John is taxed. so he takes it out on the new guy
