Both of Kreider's goals this season came off passes by Richards. Those were the only two times they were on the ice together. Kreider and Miller played together. They added some speed and energy. Torts doesn't trust them.
Torts doesn't trust him... bottom line. he will not tolerate Krieder brining offense at the expense of defensive gaffes, so he plays him with linemates that have a totally different job description.
