I think Hagelin is the 7th F and a very good one at that. Give him more PK duties this yr and have him go up and down the line up if need be.

I just think Kreider has the offensive tools to score a ton in his rookie yr with Gabby, Richards, Nash, Cally, Stepan rounding it out.

Not a knock on Hags but he was projected as a fast energy 3rd line type guy and that's what he will be. I still think he scores quite a bit this yr but he gives us that much needed 3rd line offense. Pyatt is a guy that scores in bunches as well so that line could win some games for us this yr. Boyle rounds it for sure cause he is a good defensive and big body C. Fans just like to crap on someone. Boyle is fine there.

Halpern is the faceoof C the team lacked this yr and Rupp and Asham will punch people in the face.

Its a good balance
