I'm totally comfortable saying that.
Hagelin looks to be a better stick handler, he's stronger on the puck and he's not as dependant on his line-mates as Zuccs was to score goals.
I see Hagelin as a much better offensive contrbutor than Zuccs regardless of their totals or projected totals.
In Hagelin I see a lot of similarities to both Callahan and Versteeg aside from the physical attributes (they are all pretty much the same height/weight)
Obviously Cally throws the body a bit more, but the hustle is there, the nose for the net is there. Understanding of your defensive responsibilities is there.
Would love to have 2 Callahan types on the Rangers. one on RW the other on LW
