Kreider is emerging as a serious threat to win the Calder as Rookie of the Year and is becoming one of the NHL?s most immovable forces from in front. (NY Post).

Dave Maloney said, after Kreider's hat trick against Vancouver, that Kreider makes a lot of good little plays and that while the headline will be the Hat Trick, the little things Kreider does like creating space, using his size and speed are what make him effective.

In a chat with NHL.com, Brian Leetch told Dan Rosen that he feels Chris Kreider could make a big impact for the Rangers this year, but only if he finds the right role.

Leetch says, "he's got the size, the speed, all the NHL tools, but you need the production and you need him to fit in there."

He adds that he thinks the Rangers will spend the rest of the season putting Kreider into different roles and see if they can start the playoffs with him, or if he comes in to replace an injured playoffs during the playoffs.

In his fourth game as a professional hockey player, and with the Rangers on the verge of elimination, rookie Chris Kreider converted a pass from Derek Stepan that ended up being the game winner.

Kreider went on to score four more goals in the playoffs, one more game winner, but credited that first goal with getting himself comfortable.

He said "for me, it was a little bit of a?blur" and added that it took some of the pressure and weight off of his shoulders.

At Pro Hockey Talk, they wonder what kind of impact Chris Kreider will have on the Rangers next season.

Kreider had five goals and two assists in 18 playoff games this season.

On what he expects to learn this season, Kreider said at the end of the season ?I need to try to learn the system and change my game up a little bit. It was dumbed down for me this spring so that I couldn?t overthink things.?

Chris Kreider is 6-3, 225 and projects out to be a speedy power forward at the NHL level.

Kreider has been called a ?Prototypical power forward. You can hear him coming down the ice. He?s like an impending force when he?s hounding you on the puck.?

On the power, size and speed that Kreider has, Jerry York said on 1050 in early May "If he doesn't grow up in eastern Massachusetts he probably ends up as a tailback at some major division one college."

After playing under ten minutes in games four, five and six against Washington, Chris Kreider played over 13 minutes for the second straight game and scored his first goal since his game winner in game one against Washington.

Kreider also picked up the primary assist on Dan Girardi's goal.

On how he got his game back in check, Kreider said on MSG, [the coaches] "made it clear to me that they wanted a few things done, trying to move my feet and apply pressure. I just try to play and focus on what the coaches want me to do.? The last thing I want to do is get complacent, especially at this level. The next thing you know you are a minus two and giving a Ovechkin a one-timer in the slot."

At Hockey Buzz, Julie Robenhymer writes about newly signed Ranger Chris Kreider and how he was determined to stay in college so that when he turned pro he would be prepared and the gap between the NCAA and NHL wouldn't be that large.

Robenhymer cites talks that Kreider had with Jack Johnson at the 2010 World Championships about staying in school and writes, "So when he got back from Germany, he hit the weights and the books hard and set off on the mission to make himself as physically, emotionally and mentally ready to go pro as possible and decided that when the time was right, he - and only he - would make that decision. He wasn't going to back down or be persuaded into doing something that he knew in his heart wasn't the right move for him. "

On Kreider as a player, Robenhymer writes,
