I don't see what "brains" have to do with his current issues.

Kreider takes his game to another level when he consistently uses his physical gifts, especially his speed. Torts and the organization, along with anyone who ever watched him at BC, know this. They also know that for whatever reason he has a tendency to throttle back his play.

In order to maximize his potential, they want him to be more consistent. They want him to play harder. They want him to skate harder.

I wouldn't describe Kreiders play as "dumb" or "timid" or "cautious" or "lacking confidence".

In my opinion he looked somewhere between "complacent" and "lazy".
