Uh, Tortorella did actually tell Kreider to watch how Hagelin plays. He's not making that part up, and Kreider IS playing more like how Hagelin plays now. He's using his speed to get on top of defenders before they can move the puck and he's taking the puck away from them and setting things up. Yes it's not exactly how Hagelin plays but it's an important part

And yeah Hagelin's conditioning is apparently legendary at UM. He came in as a rookie and blew the doors off of everyone

e: and to be honest, just saying "skate and move your feet!" still doesn't get a player very far...playing smart and knowing when to skate at the most effective time and how to position yourself is far more valuable than skating all over the ice like an idiot.
