I don't know what to make of him. This is the guy I was hoping we could snag on draft day too. He's still young and has time to turn it around, but he just doesn't seem to have "it".

Only defensemen I would take over Gostisbehere would be Hamilton and Brodin. He's better than Siemens, better than Murphy. Beaulieu is a similar player, but I'm still taking Gostisbehere. Oleksiak is a wildcard, but Gostisbehere's skill wins out for me.
I remember desperately hoping we'd trade up somehow and take Larsson in the top three. I was gutted when it didn't happen.

Very happy to see his development stall in New Jersey.

Did Hagg already have a taste of NA play?

Yes, he played 10 games in AHL to finish out this past year.

Different league, different roles.

It's almost impossible to for young kids to get significant EV ice time and special teams recognition at an early stage when playing against men in the SHL but the style of play in a European top league is closer to the NHL than NA college hockey.

And they get to play more games. Robert Hägg played almost twice as many games last season than Shayne Gostisbehere.
