I think it's time for you to hire new writers. The old guys are reaching for material.

For those who follow the Whale, the reports are his defense isn't good. That line would be awful defensively.

Ive seen him play, he is bad defensively, though so was Kreider when he first made the NHL.

At least he can score. Just not sure what other winger options they have, apart from Pou/Pyatt.

Miller needs to spend more time in the AHL on the top line.

Hello everyone, been a lurker for a while. Finally decided to waste my time at work with something productive.

Anyways does any see Kreider adopting a game similar to Grabner's? He could use his speed for constant breakaways. Grabner would be a killer in this league if he could finish and Kreider has the hands to do it. Right now it seems Kreider is using his speed for forechecking more so than breakaways. It could be he is just trying to find his unique niche in the NHL.

To be honest, I think the closest thing I can think of for a comparison would be a poor mans Ovechkin.

Not many guys with that combo of size/speed in the league.

So far it has looked like he's trying to find his game. It will be interesting to see how he develops. He has so many possibilities. Speed demon,Physical monster, wicked sniper. He has so many paths to choose from. Hopefully he takes them all, Rangers bad luck has to end sometime, right?

Well he doesnt have the body control, the hockey IQ and the shot ovechkin has.

But 10-11 Ovechkin, IMO, is very similar to Kreider.

It's not like Kreider isn't trying to use his speed to create breakaways, however he's not an idiot defensively like Grabner who often puts himself out of position in order to get those breakaway chances, it doesn't always blow up in his face but I think Kreider at this point is going to air more on the side of caution but eventually he'll get his chances.

It kinda feels like the opposite. It feels like at least three times a game someone will pass it like 10 feet in front of him like they're trying to spring him for a breakaway. I can't be the only one who notices it

I was talking about creating breakaways from the defensive zone, Grabner tends to try and pressure the man coming into the zone at the blue line and gets beat sometimes because he doesn't do it positionally he just goes right at the guy, I think Kreider will start doing some sort of that eventually.

I think Kreider and zucc need to start working on some kind of play or signal to have him start breaking straight up ice for a breakaway, I agree guys try nd set him up he's just not really getting it.

Grabner is not at all a good comparison. He's fast, but that's literally it. Sucks defensively, bad finisher, no hockey IQ, Kreider's not like him.

Considering that I love Landeskog, I would take that in a heartbeat.

Well said. Eagle eye award for that one.
And to think so many --- not a reference to you, my good man --- were adamant about trading Kreider for one of them.

Yeah, I suffered the last couple of years, but now I can reap my looking good for what I said with praise heaped upon CK!

Burnmaster, ploons

Let's give it more than a strong string of games before we start declaring any Internet forum victories. He still has a long way to go.

Are you saying you wouldn't trade Kreider for MacKinnon or Barkov?

Yeah, he's not playing center, though. Would think that negates you looking good.

So five years from now make sure you point to this string of games as the determining factor in who is having the better career lol

What does Kreider (not) playing center have to do with anything? He's not a center.
