David Backes has always been my comparison. Backes took 4 or 5 years after his draft to become a player. Yeah Backes is having an off year, but his off year would be a huge improvement for CK.
I like to think that as well. I see a comparison but Backes plays with an edge I have never seen at any level from Kreider. Maybe next year Kreider will do the "David Backes Canadian Olympic team fight tour" and take off from there.
