Targeting Chris Kreider

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

Tick tock.

While the New York Rangers remain in negotiation to keep winger Chris Kreider, but the Colorado Avalanche and Boston Bruins appear to have emerged as front-runners for his services on the trade market.

Kreider, 28, has been No. 1 on the TSN Trade Bait Board since December.

The Avalanche were in on Kreider well before right wing Mikko Rantanen went down with a reported collarbone injury in Monday night’s game against Tampa Bay. That injury may have only heightened the urgency to make it happen.

The Bruins have been in on the Boston College and Boxford, Mass., kid all along, as the team atop the NHL standings attempts to avenge last year’s crushing Game 7 loss to St. Louis on home ice in the Stanley Cup Final.

The Blues and, to a lesser extent, the Florida Panthers and Washington Capitals, are all believed to have inquired about Kreider’s availability.

Decision Time Coming For Chris Kreider

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Artemi Panarin was dazzling, Chris Kreider was dominant and the Rangers have one day shy of six weeks to figure out just how to keep what likely is the NHL’s most dynamic one-two punch down the left side intact beyond the Feb. 24 trade deadline.

They’re going to have to figure out how to convince Kreider, who notched his eighth goal in the last 13 games and 15th overall in Monday’s 6-2 Garden rout of the Islanders, to forego a shot at the open market merely months before he’s eligible to reach it.

Because it makes little sense for the Blueshirts to have invested in the incandescent Panarin, who scored two more goals and added three more assists and whose season is beginning to resemble Jaromir Jagr’s franchise record-setting 2005-06, and wheel one of their most important players for draft choices and futures.

Chris Kreider’s Recovery From Blood Clots

from Emily Kaplan of ESPN,

It began late last fall, when he began coughing up blood. It would happen randomly for New York Rangers winger Chris Kreider. For a few days, he'd be symptom-free. Then Kreider would wake up and spew blood, then break out in coughing fits throughout the day that he describes as "pretty gruesome."

The 27-year-old knew something wasn't right. When he was on the ice, he sometime felt a shortness of breath -- like his cardio wasn't all there -- and sustained light-headedness, too. But it was the time of year where everyone would get sick, especially road-weary professional hockey players, so he didn't blame doctors for a misdiagnosis of pneumonia.

Two days after Christmas, Kreider woke up and felt numbness in his right arm. He examined his arm at his house, and couldn't help but think it looked discolored. It was game day -- the Rangers were hosting the Washington Capitals -- so when Kreider arrived to the rink for morning skate, he received treatment. But when he returned later that night for the game, his arm looked twice its normal size -- and purple. He logged seven shifts in the first period, and when he returned to the locker room and took his gloves off, his arm was now three times its size. Team doctors examined, and sent him right to the hospital.

That's when he first heard the words "blood clots."

Would The New York Rangers Actually Move Chris Kreider?

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

He is faster than a speeding bullet and more powerful than a locomotive, yet Chris Kreider hasn’t been anyone’s idea of a superhero this season.

Unless, that is, he has used his powers to disappear for significant stretches before reappearing as he did in Sunday’s 1-0 overtime victory over the Red Wings at the Garden, and never more so than on the final shift when he came back to sweep an on-edge puck out of Henrik Lundqvist’s crease before it might have wobbled in before triggering the 2-on-1 on which Kevin Klein converted Kevin Hayes’ feed at 1:59....

The common wisdom regarding this uncommonly intelligent athlete is he is his worst enemy, he overthinks the game. Still in only his third full NHL season, the winger who turns 25 on April 30 remains a work in progress even if progress isn’t always easy to discern.

And now, a week away from the Feb. 29 trade deadline, Kreider’s name has begun to pop up with more frequency, though it is far more likely that is because he is a target for clubs seeking to do business with general manager Jeff Gorton than it is because the Rangers have made it known that the winger is available.

Chris Kreider The Crease Crasher

from Jared Clinton of The Hockey News,

What makes New York Rangers’ winger Chris Kreider a unique player is his combination of size and speed. At 6-foot-3 and nearly 200 lbs., that same speed also makes him a danger when he comes crashing towards the net.

And, after Sunday night’s game against the Edmonton Oilers, some are starting to wonder about Kreider’s intentions when he gets close to the crease.

In the contest – a 3-1 loss at the hands of the Oilers – Kreider received a goaltender interference penalty for contact, no matter how incidental, with Edmonton netminder Viktor Fasth:

continued with video of the hit and IMO, Fasth should have received an embellishment call too...

Video- Dangerous Hit From Chris Kreider On Jonas Brodin

from Michael Russo of Russo Rants,

Chris Kreider got booted after he sent Brodin flying face-first into the yellow dasher between the ice and the end boards. In the waning seconds of the first period, Brodin stopped short in front of Kreider at the goal line, but the big Rangers forward dangerously shoved Brodin on the top of the numbers and downward five feet from the end boards.

Brodin after the game said it was a hand injury and one of his fingers was wrapped and swollen.

Kreider’s Popularity Growing In NYC

from Tim Herrera of am NewYork,

Jessica Kohler weighed in: “Linsanity was ridiculous, and #KREIDERMANIA is just plain awesome.”

Wayne McDonnell, professor of sports management at NYU, said this is just what the city wants to see.

“What we do best in New York is we love . . . the fighter, we love athlete’s who come out and are given that chance to shine,” he said.

He added: “It shows you don’t have to be a player with a huge name to make a profound impact in this community.”

The city has experienced a rapid succession of frenzy-inducing athletes in a short span of time: from Linsanity (the Knicks’ Jeremy Lin) in February to Tebowmania (Tim Tebow of the Jets) in March to the rising Kreider Craze.

Such a trio of phenoms is unprecedented, experts said. But because of these meteoric rises to the top, fans must be mindful to temper expectations, experts agreed.

Rangers Continue To Wait For Chris Kreider

from Mike Sielski of the Wall Street Journal,

Glen Sather had already spent more than two and a half years waiting for Chris Kreider, and as Sather pressed a phone to his ear and prepared to speak to a national television audience, Kreider made him wait a few minutes more.

The Rangers’ president and general manager was poised for an interview during the CBS Sports Network broadcast of a recent men’s ice hockey game between Boston College and Vermont. But the interview couldn’t begin at its scheduled moment—six minutes into the second period—because Kreider had just put the puck into the Vermont net for his 20th goal of the season.

Once play resumed, Sather again failed to answer a familiar question: Will Kreider, the Rangers’ first-round draft pick in 2009, join the team in time for this year’s playoffs? “Whether he’s going to play immediately,” Sather said, “is going to be up to him.”

A 6-feet-3-inch, 225-pound junior forward, Kreider has become the J.D. Salinger of college hockey since enrolling at Boston College, eschewing the opportunity to enter the NHL immediately to instead sequester himself on this campus a few miles west of downtown Boston. After each of Kreider’s previous seasons with the Eagles, the Rangers recommended that he turn pro. He declined. Now, with the Rangers atop the Eastern Conference, Kreider has an entire NHL organization and its fan base wondering whether he’ll begin his career with the Rangers this spring or return to BC for his senior season.
