He has more upside than Hagelin.

They're Swedish. That's it.

Fast is a high-end offensive prospect.

Make sure you hit the mute button, to save you from terrible music. The goal at 2:47 is what he's best at and what he has to do, IMO.
Like the Yankee hat he's wearing at 1:03

Nice!

He really broke out last season before getting injured, I'd love for him to come to the AHL this season, even if that seems like a longshot since it was rumored he will play this upcoming season in the SEL again.

Told you I was a homer . Plus, I think that whole team's gonna be better next season. Either way, this is one heck of a player, he will come up big next season. Let's just sit back and see.

Nice to see the Rangers having a contingiency for the bottom-6 debacle we saw in the postseason. While it was nice to see Kreider step up, Hartford was pretty barren with talent.

In two seasons, Hartford will be like it was in 2007.

Fast, Yogan, MSC, Thomas, Miller, McColgan, maybe Fogarty. Out of all those forwards I think at least two will be top-6 and another in the top-9.

5 pages talking about what type of player he is....basically he's a fast 2nd line winger. somewhere between gaborik and hagelin's speed. more agile than hagelin, less speed. shifty guy who can score goals. not a physical presence though he has a little bit of grit. def better hands than hags.

Excited about this. I've heard a lot of good things about him, don't know as much about him as I do some of our other prospects. Hopefully this means Lindberg is coming soon as well.

Miller and Fast are the only top six caliber forward prospects we have right now IMO.

Outside chance for Fogarty but we have to see how he develops at Notre Dame.

That's why i want to draft Kerdiles. Top six winger. Going to a great program in the fall.

Looked like he got a lot of rebound goals though.

Scoring goals around the net...is how the vast majority of goals are scored.

In couple years time that could be some impressive speed down the wings in Kreider, Hagelin and Fast. That'll give opposing teams fits. It was only this time last year we were saying that Rangers needed more speed in their lineup.

Yeah, the kid is a diamond in the rough. High-end talent.

Kreider, Miller, Fast

And then a drop off to 3rd/4th line players.

He's nothing like Hagelin.

Hagelin is a waterbug worker.

Fast has a higher level of natural skill. He's a hard worker but he doesn't need to press as hard to create.

Re: Thomas

It has nothing to do with being a bust.

But the kid is small and weak. And sometimes puts himself in vulnerable positions.

No amount of speed and skill is going to save him at the Pro level if he can't get stronger.

Can't see him competing for a spot for a couple of years. Or trade fodder.

Id love to be wrong.

I think Miller is going to be a dandy 2 way player at some point. Likely on the Rangers in 2 yrs

Plenty of good players. Our starting goalie was a 7th rounder. Our Captain was a 4th rounder.

Patrik Hornquvist, Jonathan Erickson, etc. were all late round picks who are very good players. Sometimes these skinny kids grow into their bodies a few years later and really pan out. That'spart of a scouts job.

Is he a definite? Of course not, but he's done very well at all levels so far and has a good track record that was worthy enough of a contract. Scouts are very high on him.

He's most likely not going to be the one who brings this franchise to the next level but he'll be a very good if not essential piece if he pans out.

Not to mention Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg.
