I don't know if he is as agile, stopping and changing direction to pursue the man with the puck like Hagelin is. He is BIG and still growing. He has an NHL wrist shot already. The puck explodes off his stick. It is hard with a quick release. Everyone is Nash this Nash that. Nash doesn't make the people around better. Kreider has the same upside and he's home grown and will cost less in terms of cap hit and assets. Go for a Dustin Brown and forget Nash. He's Columbus' problem and now that he wants out I would not give them anywhere near fair value like Columbus and LA have for problem child Carter. Stick witht he program.
Wow...He sounds like Oleg Kvasha!
