He has the tools to be an effective player in a scoring role. Hopefully with some more time he can fill that spot. The bigger issue is the Rangers lack of depth on the left side, which is forcing players like Kreider to play a role they aren't ready for. Moving Richards to LW doesn't solve that problem either. He's done. Should have gone after someone else in the off season.
Since 2nd year pro is not enough data to you, what is enough data to judge a player? My patience ends after this season.

Are you disappointed in Kreider's current abilities?
