You may remember Chris Kreider as the guy who took out Carey Price, however he is also the guy who scores a lot of goals. In 12 playoff games with the Rangers, Kreider already has 11 points which is the best point-per-game scoring rate of all playoff rookies. It seems Kreider is more valuable than just taking out opposing goaltenders.
