I don't see why it matters how Torts handled Kreider at this point; Torts is gone, and Kreider can prove himself this year.
I think what you're saying about daydreaming is similar to how I'm feeling, which is that I keep wondering what this team is going to look like once they hit the ice. New coach means we have no idea. Too much anticipation means time goes slowly.

As for why it matters about Torts/Kreider, the only way it does is that some people are expecting Kreider to be close to automatic as an NHLer, maybe even a top-6er, under AV. There are those of us who are skeptical* that he's ready for that, no matter who the coach is, and we base it off of what we saw out of him last year.

*disclaimer: this does not mean we're down on his long term future.
