But either way, I'm not sure they can count on Nash or kreider to park in front for a large amount of minutes night after night.
Kreider's speed can be an asset in front of the net IMO. He can play the usual bruising, PWF game, but he'll also be super fast to get to pucks behind the net and win board battles. I feel the Rangers should etch his way into becoming less of a perimeter/shooter type player and teach him how to work cycles, win board battles and work in front of the net. I don't think he has the hands to be a top tier sniper in this league, but he can still be an effective player.
