Is this what he really said?
I mean, yea... its true.
People were so hyped on Chris Kreider, and so many people (too many) thought because he limited Kreider's playing time that he does not give young people a chance...
So many people would tell me this to the point I almost believed it.
Then I remembered what he did for JT Miller, Derek Stepan, Ryan McDonagh ( a guy who loved Torts), Carl Hagelin. Heck, Derrick Brassard is quite young too and he was given top minutes as well. John Moore saw plenty of time for a newbie half way thru the year. What about Del Zotto? How many chances and time can you give a guy?
Kreider did not play strong smart hockey. He played hard, he was fast and athletic so he scored on his chances. But he also was a reason for many bad defensive lapses. A gamble
And yes... Bruins were far better than us. Far better than the Pens. They came prepared. Simple. Torts doesnt deserve to be fired... but im glad he did and I like him. Jus like AV better (so far
