To the extent Kreider is obviously improved from the year under his belt, which having played a min of professional hockey he sorely needed, sure he'll be better this year.

Duh.

The ? is did he get a fair shake last year to be all he could be, or did Torts get into his head, and screw up his game by trying to make him be Hagelin, or this or that.

Young players make mistakes.
He could have made them here, on a higher line w/better players. Instead, he got minimal time here, on 4th line.

It was not a fair trial, and not a fair judge.

We will see now, this year.

I will have the last laugh on this.
