I'd be willing to bet ~40% of those were while injured. He played just about all of last year's playoffs injured and most of the 10-11 season was injured too (in addition to missing 20 games). After watching the guy play for (going on) 4 seasons now and seeing him play while injured and not injured, it's hard not to link/see similarities between his current level of play to his play while injured.
I haven't been able to catch any Whale games since Kreider got sent back down, but he's scored in almost every game except maybe 3-4. Hopefully the trip back lit a fire under him and he should end up back with the Rangers for playoffs again.
