Does Kreider have a top 20? 30? shot in the NHL? That's elite in my mind... and no he doesn't to me. A very good shot? Yes. But no where near elite.
I agree with you about using the term elite and I am saying that his shot is one of the best in the league. His straight ahead skating is also elite which is why he was a a first round. The real question is will he take those two skills, improve his stick handling, puck possession and overall awareness on the ice and become an elite player. Could happen.
His shot is pretty special. It seems to get on the goalie quicker than they are accustomed; combine that with the ability to hit the net and you have a weapon.
