Alain Vigneault said on breakup day that Chris Kreider is one of the hardest working players he has ever been around.
Vigneault said that Kreider is working not only working on his strength but also on the mental parts of his game and added "I think Kreids has taken steps every year. This year was another step and experience for him and I think it will make him better."
When he was asked about Kreider again, Vigneault said "the Chris Kreider we saw in the third period of Game 6, boy, I would have liked to see him on a more regular basis. That is part of the growth and evolution as a player."
