I think the difference in Kreider actually now is he's not trying to do too much. There are cases where less is more.

The times he seemed to be standing around it was more confusion about what he should be doing and then he'd be going a million miles an hour and not supporting line mates he was playing with very well.

He's got line mates to work with and now he's working with them. He's letting them do their own jobs and taking care of his own. He's not trying to leave them behind.

As well the light bulb seems to have gone off in his head that he's bigger and stronger than a lot of guys around him and that size and strength can be asset in certain areas of the ice---hence the improved play along the boards, in the corners and in front of the opposition net.
