Needs more ice time.

Seriously, he really did look good.

Strong, very smart, good vision, made something happen every shift.

He's gotta stick.

hagelin will stick until he make a bad defensive play and winds up in torts dog house. He looked good in his debut. He definitely deserved more ice time. I thought Mitchell was solid as well and i think torts should keep the lines the same going into tomorrows match up with the flyer

I'll repeat what I said in the GDT, and that's that I was very impressed with his work along the boards. He really held his own in that respect.

It looks like EC is done as a Ranger

Hagelin + Mitchell>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>EC & Deveaux


Going forward i would swap Rupp for Mitchell. EC can enjoy the bench.

Yeah, his board work is what was most noticeable about him today.

his speed was too...and its not just straight ahead speed, hes got an excellent first step and his lateral movement is outstanding.

Everyone expected the speed, so it was taken for granted.

Ryan Callahan used to be "Ryan Callahan without the hands" when he was 23 years old. Give the kid time. He put up a lot of points in Michigan pretty much without any support. He had over 50% more points than the next guy. Without him, Michigan would be nowhere near the NCAA Finals.

Then he went to Hartford, another offensively-challenged team, and was one point away from the team lead in points while being tied for the team lead in goals. He's not a talentless hack who gets by on speed. He's just a rookie who will need to be careful at first as he figures out what the NHL is truly like.

Hagelin skating with his helmet off somehow made me remember Forsberg. Don't jump on me and think that I am saying he is that good, I am just being honest in relaying what I got from my subconcious when he tore up the ice. That was kind of cool, I think.
Just another hockey moment.

Hagelin's hands are fine. Average, but nothing that will hold him back. He'll start making some slick passes as well, once he settles in and earns more time.

He (hagelin) gave us some scoring chances off of his forecheck he got on the lose puck with his speed and was good along the boards. He forced turnovers and was overall pretty good. Though one game isn't really anything to go on but lets hope he can be consistent. Mitchell is an easy upgrade over EC even if he doesn't keep up his play. Only because EC doesn't ever look like he's trying and for someone with his skill level that pathetic. Well lets hope we just get another W tomorrow.

Very much liked what I saw from Hagelin. Fast, aggressive, good along the boards. Excellent start - can't wait to see more.

What I see with Hagelin is very similar to what we have seen and still see with Callahan.

Hagelin's work ethic is going to make up for the hands.

He's going to be in position to score some garbage goals with the way he hustles.

Callahan scores some timely goals and he has developed his hands somewhat.

I see the same in Hagelin. Good little player,

Does anyone else think Mitchell's AHL picture looks like it would fit perfectly in a picture from like 1910 of a sporting team?

Ryan Callahan has hands? If he had hands, he'd be a consistent 25-30 goal scorer.

Hagelin improved every year while at Michigan. He might actually turn out to be a really good player for someone who was picked in the 6th round.

Ryan Callahan has very good hands, it's plain stupid to say he doesnt. What he doesn't have is a great shot. When you can't blast the puck by people, you gotta play it a little differently. The guy is one of like only 6 or 7 guys to score 50+ goals in the OHL in a season. His hands are excellent.

He sort of is, injuries included. Very close at least.

This year, if he stays healthy, hes on pace for 34 goals

Last year, if he played 82 games he was on pace to score 31 goals

Ryans game, especially in the defensive zone, makes him a prime candidate to get hurt. It's just something we gotta live with. But to question his hands? i dont get that. the ability to shoot the puck and having good hands are not the same thing. Cally's shot is below average at best, that's why he's gotta work for his goals with smarts and guts.

He doesn't have the Tavares bang-bang hands near the net, nor does he have a lethal shot or a Gaborik.

But he is good enough to get 30 goals in a healthy season, and whether or not he has good hands that is enough for me.

But this team does need a Tavares type finisher for the power play. Nobody on this team has great goal scoring instincts with the exception of Gaborik.
