Torts is trying to make him Hagelin. Hagelin is a good player, but I think we all have higher expectations for Kreider.
I doubt Kreider ever becomes as good as Hagelin. Hagelin is on the cusp of being something special IMO. He's proven to be versatile in any role a coach asks him to play in. He is much smarter with and without the puck. His vision, his tenacity and decision making leads me to easily choose him over Kreider.
