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)
That quote really surprised me considering Kreider has been known for his dedication to improving his game. Part of me thinks there's a lot of head butting going on between Torts and management and Kreider is stuck in the middle. Management thinks he's NHL ready and Torts thinks.. whatever it is he thinks. It's just weird.
