I stated a simple fact that if he had a good hockey sense, he'd be a 30 goal scorer right now. Given his speed, shot and shot, that's something I'm very confident in. But the problem is that he stickhandles where he shouldn't and otherwise doesn't do the right thing when it comes to using his brain.

If you take Stepan's brain and Kreider's size/speed/shot, you get a 30 goal scorer over 82 games.
A friend of mine coached hockey up in Vermont a few years back and he told me then that Kreider is used to always getting by on his size and speed and that he didn't have the greatest hockey sense!
Sounds like a pretty fair assessment thus far so it's up to Kreider to work harder and smarter and make us all believe.
