The lack of engagement and involvement on Kreider's part goes far beyond his linemates at this point. He has had an array of linemates since he entered the league and putting forth a consistent compete level has been a problem for him.

It's up to him to take more initiative out there. Players like Hrivik are already distinguishing themselves regardless of linemates.

I think Kreider may take longer to develop than some of our other forwards. Players in the power forward mold often need more time to become effective. But I think the organization and the fanbase expect big things from him right now when a more patient approach may be necessary.
