Kreider's size and speed are intimidating teams. It's very hard for a defenseman to keep good gap control if he's coming out of his own end or the neutral zone with speed which he's doing quite often every game--his size and strength just accentuates the problem for a defense. Hagelin doesn't have the size, strength factor but his speed is a problem too and his mobility in transitioning laterally and backwards gives him his skating an extra edge.
