Analysis paralysis is a critical problem in athletics. It can be explained in simple terms as "failure to react in response to over-thought." A victim of sporting analysis paralysis will frequently think in complicated terms of "what to do next" while contemplating the variety of possibilities, and in doing so exhausts the available time in which to act.
Not so uncommon among rookies in their first year of professional sports, I would venture to guess. Kreider had no problem moving his feet in the playoffs 2 years ago. Why? Because Torts didn't give him a lot to think about. The following year, he had to learn the system, learn his responsibilities, learn how to be a professional. And yes, Torts wasn't exactly the most forgiving person when it came to mistakes, particularly in a lockout shortened season.

The idea that Kreider's struggles stemmed from a lack of effort is a crock.
