I know the rules are the rules, but I have a hard time having Hagelin on this list. He's a proven NHLer whereas everyone else is a project of some kind... apples & oranges.

That said, I think Hags is slightly overrated here. I love him as a great two-way third liner, but I just don't think he has the hands to improve much over last year as a top 6 forward. The sentiment here seems to be that if he scored 14 goals as a part time 23 year old, the sky's the limit for him. I just don't see him as a sure-fire finisher on a scoring line.
I think you are correct here.

I think it's awesome that Hagelin is a very nice player for us to have here but I don't see a ton of offensive upside. He's kinda a hustle player, he'll present matchup problems for other teams due to speed, but not a gifted playmaker or scorer.

I think Miller ends up the better top-6 player.

Basically if Hagelin is our 2nd best forward prospect than we are in some kinda need for top 6 prospects in our organization.
