If ANYTHING, they need a playmaking winger. That said, I think Hagelin can be that playmaker, and he showed that he was a pretty good set up winger last year, better than any of our other wingers except for Gaborik.
Sorry, I just don't see it. A playmaker? Hagelin doesn't have great hands, passing skill, or vision. He has great speed and relentlessness. But beyond that I don't see anything as of yet. Maybe it can emerge down the road.

But he hasn't shown it yet.
