Steve Zipay at Newsday reports that John Tortorella raised the possibility of the Rangers sending Chris Kreider back to the CT Whale saying he's going to have discussions about it. Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record adds this quote from Torts on Kreider... “He just hasn’t played well, I don’t have a reason. It’s something we really need to talk about as an organization. I still think he needs to go through the process. We need to be really careful in how we’re dealing with a kid. It’s a discussion we have to have.” ...i hate to criticize the kid because he's still young and learning, but man he looked lost in the defensive zone last night. And we all know that Torts won't tolerate that. ...i know Kreider had been struggling to produce with the Whale, but I really thought playing so much during the lockout would give him a leg up on the competition early in the season. I guess not. ...tonight will be a huge game for him. In related news, Gross reports that the Rangers recalled Kris Newbury from the Whale after last night's game. ...with Asham likely to miss another game and the Rangers facing a physical Flyers team tonight this move makes sense. Plus, seeing Torts give Bickel just three minutes of ice time last night has me thinking he's not all that confident in his young brawler.
