To put things in perspective, Anders Lee had a more successful freshman campaign than the Rangers' beloved Kreider. He is definitely on a different level than Carl Hagelin and the only aspect of Hagelin's game that's above Lee's at the same stage of their development is skating. I don't see Hagelin as being more than a speedy checker who is a mainstay on the PK if he gets a full time job in the NHL. Lee on the other hand has a more dangerous offensive arsenal and just as good of an all-around game, if not better due to his puck control along the boards.
