Really? Hagelin had more points in less games than Pyatt had in his best year in the NHL. Plus, there's the fact that Hagelin has something very few players have--incredible speed. Yes, he didn't produce much at the end of the regular season and the playoffs, but he gave the team an incredible bounce when he was added to the lineup. Hagelin's best days are ahead him, Pyatt is turnnig 31 next month and is 4 years removed from his best season statistically. He doesn't play on the power play regularly (if at all) and doesn't appear to play on the penalty kill. He's a bottom 6 player who on some nights will get less than 10 minutes a game. There's nothing wrong with the signing, but Pyatt doesn't in any way replace what Hagelin can bring to the lineup. Hagelin may get traded for Nash, but it's not because Pyatt got signed.
