You can't expect a huge frame like that to consistently be a pest the way Hagelin is able to do.

Hagelin found success with Gaborik and Richards, and Callahan.

Kreider playing with a big puck controlling player like Nash would open a ton of space for Kreider. Kreider relishes going to the net for tip ins and rebounds. And relishes on being open for a shot and streaking down the wing.

Nash relishes controlling the puck and bulling his way to the net.

If the combination works, Kreider could gain confidence and start producing.

Or, you could act like a ****ing child and "holy gargllleeeeezzzzzz" rather then summoning the intellect and grammatical skills to formulate a post that explains your point of view.
Nash is big and a pest.
