He had 1 goal and 1 assist in 19 AHL games right before the lockout ended. Clearly Torts didn't get a player firing on all cylinders.
Is this when he did something happened to his foot and, to the extent possible, he was supposed to play through it but not aggravate the injury?
Clearly he didn't fire on all cylinders because of Torts, not the other way around.
I remember he did get in the clear once and put a blur by a stunned Brodeur.
It is Kreider's responsibility to make that happen but that is within the context of Torts not being an arrogant egomaniac trying to influence undue control on the players, and as a result, handicapping CK's ability to get into such positions.
Only Nash, Callahan and to a lesser extent Gaborik had enough freedom to proceed with max creativity.
CK will still make mistakes, but will show his upside is worth it.
Watch, I called it.
