It had nothing to do with Kreider's play. This was an issue from the moment Kreider left BC for the Rangers. Be like Carl Hagelin.
Or, Torts realized that he and Hagelin both have the same attribute that makes them stand out from the pack, which is their speed. Hagelin knows how to use it and Kreider doesn't/didn't, so Kreider was told to watch the way Hags uses his wheels to his benefit. e.

Should Kreider not be told to use his speed to hound the puck like Hagelin does? The guy's production was laughable, he shouldn't have been told to get out there and keep failing to put up points.
