Seems like this is Kreiders time to shine. He hasn't looked out of place yet, then again he didn't last time. If we're struggling to find goals he's the next logical person to shift around on a better line.

Pyatt seems to be getting the respect card. The team respects him and roots for him. He's not coming out of this lineup. Boyle doesn't look to be coming back soon. Asham seems like the logical replacement for Dorsett.

Then again. Logic and Torts...
Kreider is going to be in the press box once Boyle is back, and Dorsett's possible return will further solidify that (this season, at least). I don't think he's even played 10 minutes a game since his..whatever number return this is. If he does manage to get back in the lineup, I'm sure he'll be on a line with Boyle and Asham and still be expected to create offense.

And for everyone saying Anisimov benefited from playing on a line with Shelley/Prust: Going by that, Kreider should be glued to a line with guys like Clowe. On the flip side, not everyone is going to flourish while playing with offensive black holes.
