NYR will hold on to Kreider. Torts not being impressed with a young player and sending him to the AHL has happened before with MDZ. It wasn't an issue of the coach not liking him as a person or a player at all and the franchise was never about to give up on the guy. Torts saw a player who was struggling to keep up with the NHL game and sent him down.
Kreider hasn't had the proper amount of hustle so far this season. He's faster on his skates than most of the league. He's got incredible power and strength. He can snipe well. We haven't seen him make use of those incredible advantages with any consistency. He needs to have a fire lit under him, and demoting him is probably the best route to go about that.
