How is Kreider at worst going to become as good as Korpikoski? Isn't the worst case scenario that he completely stalls his development right now and never becomes more than what he currently is - not even NHL calibre. He has a long way to go only to catch Korpikoski, let alone pass him.

This concerns Miller as well, but he is younger than Kreider and while he was about as bad as Kreider the past season he at least didn't look like a deer in the headlights on the ice.

I'm not saying either of them is a bust or anything, but neither are out of the woods yet.
