Bottom line is he needs to play harder and tougher. This "hes not that type of player" stuff isnt going to fly in the NHL, especially with Torts.
In a street fight there is a difference. That's what hockey comes down to. Physically, I'd doubt Kreider gets intimidated. He's cautious when it comes to the feel and flow of the game.
He needs to do what he did last night all the time. Aggressively forechecking the opponent. Force them into a mistake. Then use your size, speed and shot to take advantage. Very few players have had the physical gifts of Kreider. He needs to learn to maximize those gifts. All in his head.
