I don't understand why AV watching one Hartford game before calling Kreider up is proof to some of you guys that he "liked what he saw" or that he's giving Kreider his stamp of approval. What options does he have? Who else was he going to call up? His team is performing horribly and has no top-six players healthy. He needs SOMEONE who can at least have a chance of scoring a goal. He can't just call up Mashinter and another plug and expect this team to produce any offense. For all you know, he watched, said to himself "hmm, no he's not really ready, we'll only bring him up for a short time, until we get healthy and than we're going to need to give him more time when we can afford to". Right now, what other options are there really? Kreider has NHL experience. The team is floundering. Calling up a guy whose equally not ready, and has zero experience in a guy like Kristo or Hrivik, isn't going to do the team much better.
