Everyone on that list, first year, 21yrs old or over, sans Staal, he was 20 his first full year. And only Hank and Stepan were top performers their first year Pro.

Kreiders first full year was not even a full season.
Kreider played a full season--just not all of it in the NHL. And every player on your list played in a professional league (AHL, SEL and NHL) for several years before they reached age 22/23. Kreider hitting whatever age means nothing now--especially in comparison to a bunch of high end full time NHL players . How he progresses to becoming a full time player in the NHL is what matters now.
