Hagelin does have speed. He doesn't have the hockey IQ Stepan does.

51 points is now considered a ******* point total in the NHL by a 21 year old. Got it.

Why do you keep bringing up baseball? Is it because the stats (which aren't even advanced) ruin your entire argument and you would rather throw them out?
Jot this down:

You're not in the room. So for you to say Stepan has "leadership" based on captaining a WJ team is laughable.

Stats don't ruin my argument because there's a laundry list of guys that have put up those point totals that went on to do nothing (our friend Dubinsky comes to mind, who put up over 50 points playing with Jagr; he didn't look too good last year did he). But I guess the Rangers should fire all their scouts, since watching hockey obviously means nothing and all we need are stats. Because Stepan throws up 51 points while playing with Gaborik who had a career year means he is a bonafide #2C. Sure. Fire the scouts!

Olli Jokinen had over 60 points last year. That's all you need to know about how much stats mean in the NHL. But keep throwing them at me.. please. I'm getting a good laugh in
