people on here treat Kreider like Tim Tebow. Kid just cant ever do enough to please certain people.

All thats left for Kreider is to kneel and pray after he scores all those goals this season.

So what do you guys think of his teammate Bill Arnold? He has the exact same stat line and is a sophomore.

do not compare Kreider to them.

the smaller players always seem to have better roles on York's squad, but anyone above 6 feet that isnt a junior or a senior somehow has to earn their ice time. Smaller players in general seem to acclimate themselves faster to the college game then everyone else. see T.J Tynan for that.

it maddens me all the time.

all those guys listed above are very solid players, but the lifespan of most of them will only be a few years as a pro....Kreider on the other hand is going to have a long long career in the NHL, and at the end of the day thats what matters not what they did in the NCAA.
you answered it yourself -- the smaller guys are better suited and perform better. there's no conspiracy as discussed ad nauseum that Kreider wasn't playing because of his age, height and class. he wasn't producing as well as others and had to wait his turn.

Didn't know Arnold was a sophomore. It has been mentioned that York does not give soph's top 6 minutes. Is Arnold getting the minutes?

I believe he is playing on a line with Hayes and Kreider but I could be wrong.

BC recruits many more smaller players than they do 6'0"+ players. They fit right into their system therefore there is less adjustment time than their is for the bigger guys.

It is not some kind of conspiracy. If you are good enough to play, you will play no matter what size you are.

Also, the most impressive thing about Kreider this year has not been his speed or his skill. It has been his ability to use his body as leverage and just not be pushed around by anyone.

Kid is like a train out on the ice. Pure stud.

As a Ranger fan I want to hear what other fans think about Chris Kreider.

He a 6'3" very speedy powerfoward, who also has a great shot.

Last season Boston collage in 32 games he score 24 points, in 12 games he has 8 goals and 8 assists.

What do you think hes going to do and who do you compare him to?

Reminds me of Stalberg. He's playing well with Kevin Hayes, and that's a sight to see.

I've been intrigued by him for a year or so. Sather has been doing a great job with his drafting. I hope Burke finds a way to trade for him but highly doubt that

He's been described as having the best toolbox, but no tools by scouts. I've dialed down my expectations for Kreider... but I haven't seen him play personally since the JC's, so who knows.

I watched him play tonight vs ND, and the skills are clearly there, but the hockey sense seems to be lacking.

Real good NHL prospect. He has NHL size and skating ability

He reminds me of an Erik Cole, Bill Guerin, Brian Rolston, Jeff Friesen type on NHL player

Seen him a few times now, and after seeing him again last night I agree with this.

But for some reason he kinda reminds a bit if Miro Satan. Maybe a bit more defensively responsible.
