Kreider had the best Corsi rating on the team during the 11-12 playoffs when he was just allowed to go out there and play hockey. He found open ice and played with guys who could get him the puck. Once Torts got a hold of him and they tried to teach him the system is where those numbers went south. Kreider is most dangerous in open ice and on the rush. Dump and chase/cycling is just a waste of his skill. It also didn't help playing with Boyle/Pyatt most of the time who were both absolutely awful for the majority of the shortened season.

I think he will do much better under AV.
