07:23 AM ET 09.16 | His eye injury fully healed, Chris Kreider can now be found challenging for a spot on one of the Rangers' top two lines. New coach Alain Vigneault slotted Kreider, 23, on the left wing of Brad Richards and Rick Nash in Sunday's intrasquad scrimmage in Greenburgh and figures to do so again Monday at the Prudential Center, encouraged by Kreider's "power," "strength," "talent" and "potential." "He'll get a good opportunity," Vigneault said Sunday. "Size, speed, you saw him on the power play (in the scrimmage), he was going to the front of the net and trying to take the goaltender's eyes out of the equation. I've liked a lot of the things I've seen from Chris so far. He's going to get a real good look."

he was going to the front of the net and trying to take the goaltender's eyes out of the equation.

Definitely the wrong choice of words for someone recovering from an eye injury.

This kid needs to step it up this season, big time.

September 16, 2013  10:02 AM ET

and here I thought this story was going to be all about Boyle scoring two goals in the blue/white scrimmage.

He will be. My strong dislike of Torts has surfaced a hope for NYR doing better without him , and the Cannots doing worse with him. It's a petty fan fantasy that has a strong likelihood of coming true.

''...Vigneault slotted Kreider, 23, on the left wing of Brad Richards and Rick Nash...'' In this case it would be one kid between two old goats.
