CK is a premium blue chip prospect, with tons of potential.
He was totally misused.

When the front office makes a decision because the team is so inept in scoring it has to burn a year of this guy's ELC just to hope we can score in the playoffs, that is a serious freakin investment.

The least Torts could have done was give this guy ample chance to succeed by having comfort he could fail here at least up to a point, if he was showing steady improvement. And do this without getting in his head, in as much as CK was in any event able to make the lower 6 of this squad at any time. Instead, Torts got into Kreider's head, exacerbating the situation.

Karma, baby, karma.
cue it up... instant karma's gonna get you...
