Now he's much more comfortable. That gives him a very good chance of refining his game and becoming even more effective.

The pool video continues to astound me. I've spent a fair amount of time in the water. Unless I had seen that video, I would not have thought it possible had someone attempted to described it to me.
Agreed. Also using that physical strength in front of the net a lot more this year. Proving to be a very useful part of his game to add to his incredible speed

It looks like Kreider finally got it. He doesn't need to be a stickhandler and gets himself in trouble when he does that. All of last season I was screaming that he needs to stop doing that and instead use his size, speed and shot for a north-south game. He's incredibly effective when he does that.

Definitely agree. When I watched him with BC, he definitely stickhandled much more than he does now. Its not to say he had no north-south game whatsoever, but it was not realized that is the type of game he needed to maximize full-time.

This thread's going further and further over 1000 and I'm scared of the wrath it's going to unleash

Nah Franson is just slow and was completely burned, and he knew it

We're over a thousand. Time to lock it up. Do we need another one? I'll let you guys decide.
