Hagelin's absolute top upside is a 2nd line player.
I really think when Kreider plays with better players he will bring his game to another level. He's not the type to do it himself, he needs someone to keep up with him and feed him the puck, something nobody at his level can do. I think he's an interesting case.
I had issues with Hagelin being on the second line, I just didn't know who to put there. I sat there thinking and I really couldn't think who it would be. Maybe Boyle or Avery I guess. There's a shortage of LWs on the team, unless someone like Frolov is signed.
Hagelin is older, having more success in college this year and is a more well-rounded player. I definitely see him making it ahead of Kreider next year.
But the more I think about it, the more I think putting Hagelin on the second line was really bone-headed. Not sure what I was thinking.
