The thing with Kreider is he has that extra gear, can reach it almost automatically and he has excellent size and strength to go along with all that.

Whether or not he scores a lot starting out--I expect he's going to be a better player than Hagelin in the long run and Hagelin is really good.
The proverbial nail on the head eco. That is an excellent comparison.

Puck pursuit has been a topic of "discussion" between Gabby and Tort's. We saw it on 24/7 and have been given indications that they talked about it more than once. Tort's does not tolerate repeating himself. I think it's safe to say that problem has been rectified.

Kreider will be fine.

A bigger, stronger, faster Carl Hagelin, with a harder, more accurate shot. People are going to be very excited as the Rangers bring him along.
