Im ready to put this behind us, because it looks like the switch has finally been flipped on.

But its not rocket science - as soon as Kreider started moving his feet every shift, he got better.
Another one of your long list of head scratching posts.
Hagelin's game is not Kreider's game. Hagelin is 5'11 190lbs, Kreider is 6'3 230 lbs. Hagelin is also 2+ years older. You would have been the first one to accuse him of playing "small".
By the way the "psycho babble" is relevant for young kids coming up, how they adjust has a lot to do with the mind.

Minutes and linemates don't prevent a player from going out, playing physical, and getting the puck and his own body to front of the net, which I all I wanted to see from Kreider to begin with.
You agree with him, yet you contradict his post.
Which is it, play like Hagelin or play physical and park in front of the net?
