You can't say you know how he would produce if given consistent playing time in an offensive position because that hasn't come close to happening all year
The problem is that he hasn't done a single thing to earn it. Let's be honest here. He was not very good in Hartford. Sure, we can blame the linemates there. He's a very flawed player. He has amazing physical attributes, but he's not the smartest player and he clearly cannot create offense by himself.

Sather bet on him to provide this offense. He is more to blame for any of it than Kreider. I'm not really putting huge amounts of blame on Kreider, but just pointing out that he clearly failed to provide the offense our GM thought he would.
