A much better argument would be that AV's message has resonated better - but I find it awfully hard to believe that Tortorella wasn't telling Kreider to move his god damn feet.
I don't think it was a lack of effort. This is a kid that obviously busts his ass off the ice. Why would he be lazy on the ice?

I think it was more not knowing what to do, or not processing it quickly enough, rather than a lack of effort.
