Lucic is a very rare combination of skill and size and toughness and I don't think his release is slow. He is also very nimble for a guy of his size.
He does not have hands of lightning, but slow he ain't. His reactions on the puck are excellent.
So far, to me, Kreider doesn't seem to have that much hockey sense. Great skater and strength, so he will be a solid NHL player. He might become more, but who knows.
Comparing the two players is pretty much apples and oranges in terms of their styles at this point.. I've not seen nearly enough of what I want from Kreider yet. I will say that his shot is impressive. Quick, hard, accurate. He needs to use it a whole lot more.
