During last night's 3-2 loss to the Panthers, Chris Kreider was given just 3:43 of ice time, including a miniscule two shifts in the second period and ZERO in the third. Kreider has not cracked ten minutes of ice time since his recall last week. Good friend of the blog Scotty Hockey said it perfectly about Kreider in his game recap.... "If Torts doesn't trust Kreider to play more than four minutes against the worst team in the league, when is he ever going to trust him?" ...definitely not this season, because as soon as either Dorsett or Boyle are healthy, Kreider is headed to the Whale taxi squad. ...i think I've just given up on the idea that Torts will use Kreider this season, because I wasn't even upset about this after the game. Why would anyone think Torts would magically use Kreider after publicly stating he's worried about him in the big spot and that he didn't even want him recalled in the first place? ...unfortunately, Kreider has had a lost season. There was so much hype surrounding him after he exploded onto the scene in the playoffs last year, I guess it would have been hard for anyone to live up to those expectations. The best we can hope for is that he's learned from the adversity and he comes back a stronger player mentally for it. Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
