Admittedly I know less about Fast than the other two. I'll give him a chance.

Yes, the reason is Kristo wanted to be in college for four years. Like Hagelin.
Yeah like Hagelin. Hagelin is not the scorer Callahan is. Maybe ES he is, but ~41 points of ES production doesn't get you as far as Callahan's ~55 points of mixed production. Goals are goals, especially when you consider our PP numbers and how much more of a need that is right now.

Also injuries. Least likely of the group to provide decent top-6 production, but the skillset is there.
I like Hrivik the best of the 3, he has great production. When it comes to forwards I'm very much a numbers guy. I like to see what I'm getting. Especially with younger players, because I feel a player that's going to become good in the NHL should put up nice looking numbers at a lower level.

Quote:
Remember that I said even strength production. Callahan is an average ES producer at best. A lot of his goals come on the PP.
Like I said, goals are goals. And unless you're freakishly good at ES like the Bruins are, generally the PP is how you make money in the playoffs.
