Hagelin is a little further down the list for me. I see him as a great third liner for years to come... sort of like a Todd Marchant. I just don't see Hagelin having the hands to score much more than he did last year. As a very good 4-year college player, Hagelin was more mature than your typical first year pro, so he was able to step in and produce as a rookie.
But I don't see a great offensive upside.
Not so sure about your reasoning--he will most likely be looking at increased minutes on one of the top 2 lines(until gabby comes back)and will be playing more on the PK with Prust gone.
He also scored 16 goals last year not playing a full season so with the increased playing time there should not be any reason he doesn't score at least 20 goals.
That a high ceiling for Miller who hasn't even played 1 game yet--now in the long run hopefully Miller score's between 25-30 each and every season--but to say he out plays Hags by a lot I don't believe so.
