You can flip Hagelin and Nash if you want more balance.

As much as I want Kreider with a legit playmaker, I think the team would have more success with Nash and Hagelin as our top-LW'ers, and Gaborik-Callahan as our top-RW'ers.

Kreider on our third line isn't ideal, but Boyle and Pyatt aren't incapable of producing offensively. We're not talking about ryan holleg, colton orr, jed ortmeyer, and blair betts here.
No, I see two 20 goal scoters, who have never shown any chemistry together, and a 2nd year player who put up points while playing with the two best offensive players on the team. I'm not convinced Hagelin is a 20 goal scorer, and I believe he certainly wouldn't be one on that line.
