Not criticizing him for staying in college, but if he signs two years ago and gets into the Ranger system he would be a much better player.
I wouldn't go that far. Who knows what he would have happened if he left school early.

Like Sting has been saying, this is a player who was very raw when drafted. The key was not to get too excited because he has elite speed and terrific size. That will only get you so far in hockey. This game we all love is alot more cerebral than ya think. Then you have to go out and do it every game.

It's not even 4 years yet since he was drafted. This is a transition year for Kreider in every sense of the word. Anyone throwing out lifetime assessments at this point are just not patient people, and need to...relax.

Took the organization 6 years to get Jessiman was a dud.
