His poor play has caused a ton of problems for this team, since we have had to resort to plugging Miller into his role, playing Boyle more, etc. His poor play has caused so many problems it's not even funny. We have ZERO secondary scoring.
Again, a lot of that blame can go to Sather for not hedging his bet properly. But that's hindsight at this point.
Sather was BANKING on Kreider putting up .50 PPG this season.
I have to wonder, though, how much better they would be if they had a consistently good player like Kreider with them. It's obvious that Richards doesn't mesh with Nash and that Stepan does. But it's just as obvious that Callahan is not a top 6 player.
I don't know. A lot of the blame goes to Gabby and Richards. I agree. Just trying to wrap my head around all of it.
Garbage. Kreider has been jerked around by Torts the genius. You can't score from the bench. Torts' pets Richards and Boyle have contributed zilch. Add in Gabby and you have what we have.
