What people don't seem to understand is that the preseason is used to tune up your game. Kreider showed improvement over his first two games which is what you're really looking for. I didn't see improvement from Fast; I saw invisibility through all games minus a few very small plays. Were people really expecting Kreider to come in and light up the preseason? He had more points than Richards and Nash combined...
Improvement is good, but he didn't improve beyond what Fast showed and therefore it is irrelevant. The best players play.

Let's say Fast stated out at a level of 6 and stayed there throughout.

Kreider by comparison started out at 2 and managed to improve to 4, or maybe even 5. Still shouldn't make the team over Fast.
