Kreider isn't there yet, and really never has done that consistently. He's thrives more on opportunity on the rush. And when the puck is in control by his team he will go to the net.

Like it or hate it, its the way he's always played.
Nash is indeed a pest. He is always on top of the opposition just like Hagelin and Callahan. You seem to be under the mistaken notion that a large player cannot be a pest. A pest does not have to be small in stature.

Nash is all over the ice using his skating abilities. That is what Kreider did last year. He hasn't done it this year. This is an undeniable, inarguable fact. When he starts doing that again he will get plenty of ice time. Until then, he simply doesn't deserve it.

Too many fans seem to think that because a player has abilities we should all sit around and wait for him to try his hardest. It doesn't work that way in sports or in life.
