He won't become a superstar. In order, for a swede, to become a superstar in this leauge you must have a twin brother.
Henrik and Joel Lundqvist
Daniel and Henrik Sedin
Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk
Peter Forsberg's twin Ulf:

yep, until he decided he didn't want to be a power forward anymore. He still has time, but he needs to know what type of player he is. A finesse passer he is not.
For sure. He really started to take off for a while there. This year has been hard for him, but i agree, he's young still. Still has hope. Only problem is, i don't think he'll be on the team much longer.
Hagelin makes a difference every shift. The kid is FEARLESS.
He gets every 50/50 puck, and he makes the right play 9.9/10 times.
I'm telling you. He IS going to be a superstar. These playoffs are only further bolstering my opinion of him. I don't think I've ever seen someone use their speed so naturally and fearlessly on such a consistent basis while having such a high hockey IQ.
In time he needs to become more decisive on the quick exchanges in the offensive zone.
The speed is special though and the best part is its functional speed. It's not just speed you read about on hfboards but never see in action (hint hint).
He's also incredibly agile.
Gaborik is fast...going forward. If he needs to separate himself from the D when the D is beside him, he is gone.
Hagelin is more like Bure in the sense that no matter what direction he is going he is blazing...
Hagelin is never going to be a superstar, he doesn't have the offensive ability to be a PPG player, but he does have the ability to play on the ice in any situtation and be productive. Those kinds of guys win you championships.
Hagelin will have 50-60 points next year playing a top 6 LW spot with most likely Richards and gaborik, the kid is still raw and hasn't even played a full season. We got an absolute steal here boys. LGR!!!
even though he didnt have any points or many shots, he was EASILY our best forward in game 6... just absolutely everywhere causing turnovers and making plays. kid is a beast and i love watching him his speed is unreal....and kreider might be even faster...
