I can imagine Bern saying though:

I don't propose trading Kreider often, but when I do, its for Taylor Hall
.
When a guy like Kreider has massive upside, it is risky to trade him until we have an idea of how high that ceiling is.

A couple of guys --- Malkin, Stamkos have too high a ceiling, you can't go wrong.

Kreider v. Hall way too early to tell. Different players bringing different things.

No, Tortorella isn't confirming his lineup until right before the game

e: I think the only thing that would make me wary about trading Kreider for Hall is that Hall could end up having a lot of injuries and never manage to stay healthy. He takes way too many big hits

I think so. I think he should be in lineup regardless and see what this kid has. He's got speed, hands, and a shot, and the Rangers could use some of that.

Feel free to discuss.
Yes. Kreider subbing for Hagelin, and after a couple of games, replacement for Mitchell, who I liked so far as to what he's given, nothing more, nothing less. But we need better for the playoffs especially as to firepower.

If we have Kreider's speed and a fresh Dubinsky, maybe we can sit Feds just this one game and dress Scott. I'd try for some counterplay with him on the 4th line, not mauling anybody, just some serous brusin. Then if circumstances are right, we can get some payback.

Do we agree Scott as 4th LW is better than sitting a 6th D?

I'd love for us to have this chance but it only works if we're back at MSG and we get the last change, otherwise it's a pretty big risk. Sens are hoping we'll do this in their barn. Scott would see 2 mins at most, all of it a needless risk.

The 20-year-old winger recently decided to forego his senior season at Boston College and turn pro.

Katie Strang finally acknowledged that Chris Kreider is not a center.

How can anyone suggest sitting Feds, especially for Scott?

Fedotenko has been one of our best players in these two games.

It's probably just speculation that he'll play. No one knows who is in the line-up besides Tortorella. We won't know until 5 PM.

This morning Chris Kreider took part in the team skate at Scotiabank Place. Do you think he should make his NYR debut tonight?
Seems like public relations is pushing for it

And besides, they may have first projected him a C based on his skating when they drafted him. We need LW help, and he's bulked up nicely enough, but C would be a great place to maximally exploit his speed with less risk of boarding, etc.
