According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, Tortorella does not trust Chris Kreider or JT Miller.
Torts says he’s worried bout J.T. Miller (7:08 ice time) & Chris Kreider (3:23). Not mad, just not sure he always can trust ‘em in close gms

Torts went on to say that he does not want to mess with their development. It would be great if he didn’t play mind games with them. Kreider has been up and down so much this season, he has to see the color of his jersey to know where he is playing on a given night. So far neither Miller nor Kreider has been sent back down to the whale. Both are young but able to produce when not stapled to the bench or playing on the 4th line. We will have to wait and see who and when gets sent back to the Whale.
