the fact of the matter is, Kreider is a "tweener" right now...he probably won't learn all that much from playing down there, but he should be playing....and on the flip side, his play at this level hasn't warranted him playing more than he has. so to be honest, either sending him down, or keeping him up are both valid plans....it's really up to him. he's been playing scared...when he starts playing fearless, his ice time will go up.
Sorry for the double post, just reading this, but i completely agree. Callahan, Del Zotto, etc, important parts of our core have gone through the same kind of development. Kreider has been crap this season and needs to develop more
