Where do you come up with this garbage? CK is a golden boy? A threat to Torts? What kind of delusional world do you live in? What a ridiculous thing to say.
Torts would have accepted success any way he could. Brassard isn't your typical "Torts kind of guy", and he had plenty of success here in NY since we acquired him. MZA isn't either, but he too had a successful impact on his team.
Gaborik had 2 40G seasons under Torts.
Stop making excuses for CK. Admit you overhyped him because of his nice youtube highlight reel, and, as usual, you're Peter Griffin in this thread just like every other thread you post in.
Those seasons had his goals come extremely streaky, especially in 2012.
Brass and Zucc have success because they have more hockey IQ than Kreider and have both seen more NHL and experience time, so yes, they weren't Tort guys but they got it done because they played their game and worked at it and for it. So I agree with you here about Kreider not working for it etc. And junk.
However, at least around here, CK is treated like a golden boy by a lot of people. Maybe not so much anymore, but was a lot. Lot of people overhyped and over-hoped so yeah.
Also don't see why putting down posters is the way to go when debating
