Hagelin only started to perform when he was brought into the Nash-line. Stepan's passing is the right weapon for Hagelin. I feel it would be better for both Richards and Kreider if they are together on 1 line. Obviously, the Richards-Gaborik combo doesn't work and neither does the Kreider-grinder philosophy of Torts.
I wish people would actually understand this. You can't expect Kreider to perform like a 1st/2nd liner in the 3rd or 4th line.

If people think that he's not earned his spot in the first, fine. I get that. Send his ass to Hartford then, and ASAP. Don't know about you guys, but I'd like to actually see this guy develop. But he isn't going to develop by playing 4 minutes per game.
