Great read, thanks to the contributors.
Reaffirms my expectations to date, except I am a bit less concerned about CK if they will let Kreider be Kreider, so to speak, and I do not mean in minutes which force him to play with Pyatt, Boyle and which insists he not use other skills to instead stand in front of the net to screen the goalie. Such specialty is worth pursuing, but lets get him comfortable with the basic game at the pro level. He obviously has the skill set, and looks terrific w/Miller as each feeds off the other's speed.
Pleased to see Kristo rated a little more highly than I had him.
Pleased to see Caille Andersson "making great strides over the past few months" or whatever your exact words were to that effect.
Again, thanks for the compilation.
