I've always felt that Kreider will be a guy who plays to the level he's at. Won't dominate the AHL and won't dominate the NHL but can be productive. McDonagh didn't dominate the AHL but then came up to the NHL and was a beast. I feel Kreider can be the same way. If he uses his speed, like on that Asham goal, he can definitely back defenses up and open up the ice. The main thing with him is playing with confidence and consistency.


On another note, does anyone else feel like we don't have a 4th line? Even used in 4th line minutes, the Kreider-Richards-Asham line has the potential to be a productive and useful line. Asham is really the only 4th liner on the roster. Pyatt-Boyle-Dorsett is a great 3rd/checking line, if anything that is the 3a and Richards line is 3b. Making that Richards line Clowe-Richards-Kreider or Clowe-Richards Asham makes it more of a 3rd line than anything else.

Zucc-Brassgod-Nash
Hags-Stepan-Cally
Pyatt-Boyle-Dorsett
Kreider/Clowe-Richards-Asham/Clowe

That's a deep 4 lines right there.
