Woo get this kid signed and straight to practice!!
I'm really trying to temper my expectations, but it's really hard to given how all hockey analysts were saying all year is how he is a man playing with boys and could jump into an NHL lineup right away.
I mean, if a shrimp like RNH can jump right into the NHL at 18, why not Kreider? Granted RNH is supremely talented, but Kreider has NHL size, world class speed, and is not afraid to go into the dirty areas to score goals. He fits right into Torts' system.
He's played at the World Championships the past 2 summers, so it's not like he hasn't had any exposure to professional hockey. Honestly, can he be any worse than freakin Mitchell?
