I say that because theres only so much puck to go around for those guys...and because Hagelin can do so much dirty work and is a borderline elite level board player (which is remarkable considering his size). Using Hagelin with those 2 lets you put 1 of Callahan or Kreider with Nash and Stepan...and the other gets put on the 3rd line.

Scoring on all 3 lines, elite players on 2 of the 3.

next season....assuming there is a next season, once gabby gets healthy, you may just see the Rangers rampage through the east.
I agree. It's good asset management to play Hagelin with Richards.
