Hagelin is showing he can play at the Pro level.

Thomas has yet to show he can play above a league of teenagers.

I like them both, but I keep the more proven and still very young player. Bigger, stronger, faster, smarter.

And we get to keep Kreider and Miller?

Thomas is extremely extremely expendable.

NONE of our NHL defensemen are expendable, however. So including any of them, including Del Zotto, would cripple this team's basis for success, regardless of improvement up front. Its still a team that lives and dies by its team defense, stemming from Henrik and the defense corp.
