I'm incredibly relieved that his shoulder isn't an issue and that he's ready to go, because the speed and tenacity he brings to the offense will be huge. He forces teams to make bad plays with his speed
Hagelin completely changed the dynamic of this team last year. He was a turning point. He gave this team the boost it needed and he doesn't get enough recognition for it. I agree, I'm not calling him a star but he is vital to this team and he can make this team go.

Kreider may need to do more convincing but I disagree that people are "awarding" him spots based on potential alone.
