When he first came up I suggested that McD reminded me of Chelios. I got laughed at. Doesn't look so far fetched now, does it?

As to Kreider, his style reminds me of a young Messier, lite without the leadership. Not quite as nasty but many of the same attributes. Like Messier, Kreider can skate around a d-man and score. Also he has the same ability to come down the wing and score. He's a load down low with the puck and strong in the corners.

Now he doesn't forecheck quite to the extent that Mess did and he still hasn't shown the knack for throwing those big destructive hits Messier was known for in his early days.

If Kreider would play a little more physical and start forechecking harder he would be an absolute monster. He's just too big, fast and strong for most d-men in this league to handle.
