    It's Time to Move Kreider

    Can’t help but like the guy again when he begins to produce and takes off the cloak of invisibility. He talks a good game, says he needs to be in on every play every shift but doesn’t follow through.

    Ok, ONE MORE CHANCE Kreids, one more shift of thoughts to ‘you’re a keeper’ and let you stay. But if you slip up again and pull another Casper — you are gone!! I mean it this time.
    *sarcasm*

    Surprised you think so. I don't think the Blues touch that with a 10 foot poll.

    * It's possible that outside St Louis, Jaden is one of the most underrated players in the entire league. The guy gets zero hype, but does so many hockey things well. Contributions that go unnoticed by the casual observer.

    * He has been a critical part of the Blues great start, even with key injuries.

    * Just turned 25, plays both C and LW. Currently 4th in the NHL in scoring. 17GP 9G 12A 21P +14

    * He never makes a dumb play or takes a bad penalty, great at positioning, good defender, sweet stickhandler and passer, even better w/o the puck, makes everybody on the ice better consistently.

    * He looked excellent in the last 2 playoffs and is killing it again this year. He does everything very well and consistently. Fun to watch.

    Schwartz is basically a more offensively-talented and faster Stepan that can play wing and center. Smart player, good playmaker, and agreed with Giacomin very underrated.

    My point was that a 1 for 1 deal would not produce anything better than Kreider. The people here see him play every night, but they don't see the other players every night. It's the same story: inconsistent, dominant some nights and invisible others. That's what separates 1st liners from 2nd liners. The skill sets are similar, if not slightly off. It's the ability to do it night in and night out. Kreider isn't the only, or probably not the most frustrating, player in the league who does this.

    It's also not easy to bring that same intensity every game. It has nothing to donwith effort, heart, or passion. Regardless of their salaries, the players are not robots. There are so many factors we don't see or know about. There's something going on in every room with 1 or more guys. Every athlete in every sport, at every level, goes through highs, lows, and mediocrity. It's life. If a guy is constant dog shit for 2 years, different story. That's not usually the case though, and isn't the case with Kreider at all.

    Started this thread a month ago. He hit the score sheet and started playing more physical the next day.... (LOL you're welcome)

    He's had a really good month and I'm glad he's playing somewhere close to his potential. Hopefully he maintains this aggressive play and maybe gets even better.

    This team is almost running on all cylinders. That's some winning streak. How do we feel about how they stack up now, as opposed to a month ago?

    Team wise, they are playing much closer to 60 minutes now, as where they were only playing ~20 minutes a night, earlier in the season. And, as much as people will ignore it - they are playing AVs system. When they come out, together, and skate, they are a good team. Its when they come out, dont move their feet, they are not effective. Kreider is a perfect person to watch, and he exemplifies that. When hes moving, he creates trouble and scoring chances. When he's standing around watching, he looks bad, lost and detrimental. Unfortunately, we have a lot of those guys. Overall, the consistency from shift to shift, game to game and improved. Still need to get 5 on 5 play to where it needs to be, as the PP is allowing us to neglect some issues.

    To me, I think this is closer to where I expected them to be, looking at how they were a month ago. I said back then, the team was in most games, just didnt play the full time and came out on the wrong end. Now, they are trying and getting rewarded with some bounces in their favor.

    His uneven play reminds me of Kovy, but his propensity to turn it up when it matters most reminds me of Kovy as well. Everyone crowed about Marty St.L inspiring the Rangers and turning around that Pittsburgh series. I think about #20, coming back off an injury, scoring a one man PP goal, when we had been like 0-34, that set the tone for game 5 and the rest of the series. How about the tying goal with the goalie pulled in Game 6 of the Caps series in 2015? Or how about that herculean effort in the third period of game 6 of the Ottawa series last year that Larry Brooks talks about once a week? I don't care if he sleep walks through a third of the regular season, doesn't score off the rush, gets 28 goals for the year when he could get 43 etc. I don't think a trade for him would bring something that would help us more and he has usually performed best in the clutch.

    Seems to work. I complain that Holden and Kamfer are playing over Smith and the team goes on a winning streak.

    Make a thread complaining that you never win the lottery.
