Kreider?
People thought Kreider had "arrived" after his debut playoff performance. How did the ensuing season turn out? He looks terrific now, but I'm hesitant to say he has arrived after 30 good games.

I think of that language as applying to guys like Stamkos, Skinner, etc. Kids who may only be 19 or 20 but are basically established NHL players.
