I'm sure it's a question that will have a better answer over time, but we can speculate a bit in the meantime.
Maybe not making the team out of camp made him finally connect to the notion that he needed to change his game to a simpler, more physical, north / south game.
It's all there on the first goal last night. It was a thing of absolute beauty. Kreider starts it by using size and strength to easily lift Upshall's stick. This allows Miller to easily take it away. Kreider then just as easily is able to keep up with the play and drives towards the front of the net. He finishes off a nice passing sequence by feeding a wide open Miller.
Speed, strength, skill, and size. It's all on display now. Which is exactly what all of us were waiting to see on consistent basis.
