if i were lucky enough to be any ny ranger player, i would be ryan mcdonough or kris kreider. both guys with immense talent and elite wheels.

to be 6'3 and 220 lbs and have a stride like kreider has is filthy. skys the limit if he figures out how to use his size and speed on every shift.

It's hard to provide any offense when he was put on line with the Powes and Ashams of the world.

Very true. Its ironic that in Torts final days as the Rangers coach he finally started trusting him and bumped him up to the top lines and he did well

The obsession with blaming everything else for Kreider's mediocrity before the last few games is ridiculous.
Agreed, and power forwards usually take a longer time to develop anyway. I haven't seen excuses like this for our other young players who have struggled or been inconsistent early in their career.

Yep. There was a play in the Buffalo game last night where the Sabres' could've had a 2-on-1, and not only did Kreider get back and cut off the play entirely, he distinctly pointed to MCDONAGH and told McDonagh who to cover. That was really the moment I knew that this Kreider was here to say.

Yep. I remember that play as well. There was then another one where he got back to even up a 3-on-2 and you could visibly see him demonstrating "I've got the third guy." Great to see.

He's actually done that a few times since being called up. Basically it speaks to his being involved in all areas of the ice.

I expected that sooner or later Chris was going to get it. The question was becoming how long?--it's turning into right now.

Are you saying Kreider is big and strong? I came over this, he got leveled by Murray the other day. Maybe he needs to spend more time in the weight room, to avoid getting tossed like that.

Theres nothing ironic about it whatsoever. Kreider started skating a bit more and was rewarded more ice time. Real tough concept to understand.

I can cherry pick videos on YouTube as well.



Kreider is the strongest hitter ever!

well it was a interference penalty on that play. I mean every player gets hit once in awhile. Didnt Nash get destroyed by Oshie on consecutive games. the point is Kreider most of time isnt gonna get knocked around like that. Murray is a tough defenseman

Murray is probably one of the most solid players in the league, if not the most solid. He's slow as crap and doesn't handle the puck worth a damn but when he steps into a guy there's not a player in this league that isn't gonna get rocked.

Murray stepped up into Kreider who didn't have the puck and wasn't expecting a hit, and Kreider also stood up to take the force of the hit so he didn't get nailed in the head.

Kreider is a workout freak. He's been all over the offensive zone since he's been back. And has made several takeaways in the neutral zone. Good for him. I hope he keeps it up. And the team needs him to.

Showing a video of Kreider getting hit by Doug "the meat sack" Murray means nothing. Chara would go down in a collision with Murray, the guy is big enough to be an offensive lineman.

also kreider didnt have the puck on the play so i doubt he expected to get decked by an nfl linebacker on the play.

There's gonna come a day (I think its soon) when Kreider is our best forward. I personally feel he has the skating ability of Gabby, the power of Nash and does some of the things Cally and Stepan do. We could be watching the next great Ranger star being born in front of our eyes

Kreider was already falling backwards when he was hit. The kid is built like a tank, so that's the least of my worries in regards to his game.

More time in the weight room? I would advise against that. The guy is huge as it and his speed/strength ratio is just right at this time IMO. He got hit without expecting it by another big guy and he fell down, got right back up and kept playing. That's fine.

This one was bad. Seriously, Im surprised he wasn't knocked out there, guess he must be pretty tough then.
