Holy **** I actually agree with you.


While I didnt like the timing of his demotion in the wake of the Boyle thing, and i think Torts' methods of mentoring will eventually ruin the hell out of somebody the organization covets, Kreider (hopefully) is taking this like a man.

When you consider the number of fragile, young players Torts has coached into legitimate NHL top/middle-tier players, he must be doing something right.

If Kreider becomes a casualty because of it, I'd chalk to up to percentages. Not every Rangers prospect is going to blossom, but we've been programmed to think that way:

Staal
Stepan
Hagelin
McDonagh
Sauer
Anisimov
Callahan
Del Zotto

That's a pretty good run.
