Really?

Kreider hadn't played a second with the Rangers before Tortorella had already "typecast" Kreider as Hagelin.

Quote:
Rookie Chris Kreider, who joined the Rangers on Wednesday and was a healthy scratch Thursday night, had a Game 1 homework assignment: Keep your eye on No. 62.

"I was told to watch Carl Hagelin," Kreider said. "How he hounds pucks, the puck pursuit, the energy he brings to the game."

It had nothing to do with Kreider's play. This was an issue from the moment Kreider left BC for the Rangers. Be like Carl Hagelin.
