Kreider is fine if you want to build an Olympic speed skating team, but he seems to have no clue at hockey. Great size and speed but no hockey sense or vision. Young Mike Blunden minus the physical game.

Mirco Mueller - 6'4", 190lbs
would all be good value at 36 and all, except Hagg, should be available. I may be alone here, but I think Hagg is over rated and will not be the force many predict. In watching films of him, I just don't find him to be a fluid athlete. Just watch how odd he looks when he's shooting a puck.
In the early rounds I would never draft a guy who is defense only unless he was dominant(see Tinordi or Komisarek early on), guys like Mueller are 2 way guy, the type that will play PP and PK minutes and potentially shut down minutes if they reach full NHL potential.
