The 25 shots that he has in eight games are the most he has had in a month, and that includes 14 games in December where he only had 21 shots and 11 games in November where he had 24 shots.

Of his six goals in the last eight games:

three have come on the power play
one came on a breakaway
FIVE came from going to the net or being around the net
Looks like the demotion worked, and lit a fire under his ass.

I dont know when hes coming up. That quote from Torts about how, and Im paraphrasing, "Kreider needs to learn a ton about being a player and a professional" spoke volumes. The way he approached the game seemed to rub Torts the wrong way for some reason. I think it goes beyond what we saw on the ice this season (which was poor enough to warrant the demotion in and of itself)
