So, I was wrong. I was against using Kreider, couldn't see the sense of putting in a rookie or wasting an ELC year. I'm still not so sure about burning the contract, but the kid's great.

When you have a kid who comes in top6 forward ; no problem burning a year.

Kreider is just a force! He may be the fastest skater I've ever seen play for the Rangers.

I like Kreisler too but I like Shevroley even more.

When I came on here last summer/fall and said as much about Kreider you all dumped on him and said he was not a top player
Guess what? He is......

Kreider gives us a big edge. You can see that he makes things easier for richards. also lets not forget stepan the guy is turning into an assist machine

He really should be playing on the top unit of the PP from now on.

Totally worth the contract burn for him to play in the playoffs.

With the lack of forward depth they had, there was really no choice; can't rely on John Scott in the playoffs.

Definitely; he's been a huge addition to the team thus far.

The difference in speed between the Rangers without Hagelin and Kreider and then with them is huge. It changes the whole dynamic of the attack.

Burning a year on a ELC contract, when the team got 109 points anyway, only to have him come into the playoffs to score 2 GWG already? I don't think anyone should have a problem with that.

I have been waiting for almost 40 years for the Rangers to draft and sign a scoring forward like this. This is special stuff even for an old guy like me.

This kid Kreider could have the most incredible beginning to the NHL by any player ever.

How many championships has he won? And now he might raise the Cup?

This kid is either very special, or very lucky. I think the former.

I dont think he is lucky. I mean when you watch him he is always making plays even when he isnt scoring

Where is that guy that was "dissapointed" with Kreider because he was lazy and didn't have a highe enough "compete" level.

The former meant he is very special.

If the Rangers go all the way,...and there is no doubt the impact this kid would make, Kreider will have won 4 titles in 3 years. That would be insane. It would be Chrisanity.

2 NCAA titles, a World Juniors, and a Stanley Cup,... in 3 years!
