Hagelin has been nothing but a gnat ....occasional bother to the other team with his speed and forechecking, but that's it....ZERO prduction....zero goals in like 30-40 games...yeah, there are some things to like in his game and there is hope that he will put it together, but also very valid to question whether he will be much of anything to really help the rangers..
It comes down to what expectations you had for Hagelin. Was he just a speedy go that played on the 1st line last season, or a guy that could be a legitimate first liner. I've always though it was the former.

So, basically, I dont expect offensive contributions from him. I think hes extremely fast and a well-schooled player. Thats fine on our 3rd line, as currently constructed.
