Kreider to Stay at BC?

kreider6Julie Robenhymer at Hockeybuzz was able to speak with Chris Kreider this weekend and got the impression he was going to finish out his education at Boston College before making the jump to the NHL after saying he’d see Julie on Broadway in three years…

“Problem is, Kreider doesn’t want to just make the NHL, he wants to make an impact on the NHL and I don’t think he’ll make the jump until he’s in a good position to do just that. In his mind, if he waits to turn pro, he’ll be in a better position to be an integral part of an NHL team, a difference maker, someone who can show you what he’s capable of every single night instead of a prospect plugged into the lineup who only shows flashes of brilliance every now and then. He knows there will be adjustments that will need to be made at the next level, but there’s a difference between developing in the NHL and adjusting to it. He doesn’t want to make the jump without learning everything there is to learn at the college level and there’s still more for him to learn and for him to accomplish at BC and he knows it.”

…while I selfishly would like to see Krieder in camp next year, if he feels he’s not ready then he should stay at BC. Never a good idea to push a kid if he’s not ready to make the jump cough Del Zotto cough cough Grachev cough.
