This dude deserves his own thread. This kid has been fantastic so far since hes been called up. Oh man he got some wheels, hands, can pass, and a decently good shot. A goal and 2 assists in his first 3 games for a rookie and I feel that he can put up alot more with the way he plays. This kid will stick and will make an impact on our 3rd line. . I feel that he would be even better on a line with Richie though. He is making a great name for himself.
Been a fan of this pick since draft day 2007 - always said he had a decent shot at 2nd line upside.
Agree with others that his debut reminds me of Cally (when he came back up after his brief demotion). Also agree that I wouldn't mind seeing him get a look on the first or second line or on the 2nd PP unit at some point this year.
I want to see Kreider AND Hagelin's speed on the same NHL roster... Adds a different dynamic to the team out on the ice because the opposing team's D is forced to react and move the puck so much faster with the type of skating those two possess....
