He has also found a way to make the NHL's visor mandate completely ineffective.

Yup, and players like Hagelin become more necessary when some of those so-called gamechangers come up short in the playoffs. Hagelin and Boyle came up huge last night on the PK while some of our skill players were floundering on the PP.

Energizer bunny. He just keeps on going.

Yeah. Always wondered about that.

Hags works with any line. Glad to see him doing well & getting credit.

He'd basically be Amonte with better defense. So yeah, probably.

The main board is a cluster****. In the Rangers-Kings Final thread a Kings fan claimed that the rangers would be the slowest team that they faced yet, gaborik is still a speed demon and hags and kreider aren't good players. Not much hockey knowledge in So Cal.

It's one, though. On the old NYR official board there was a poster who for the longest time after the lockout felt that Montoya was a better goaltender than Lundqvist, if he was ever given the chance, and that Hollweg was a more important player than Jagr. "Heart and soul guy." Turned out a few years later he was a crazy anti-immigration nut. Filled up the pages with threads about how awesome Giuliani was and got booted.

Point is, one guy doesn't represent a fanbase. You wouldn't have think Ranger fans had a high opinion of Henrik if Snowblind's posts were the only ones you saw.

He really stepped up for the team in the play offs. I'm proud of what he's done because I've gotten down on him a lot in the past for having no hands. Thanks Hags!

Middle six forward that plays big in the playoffs....love it! Can't have too many guys like that.

Add to it, he's one of the fastest guys in the league, make him all that much better!

He got a world class motor and his speed causes problems for the opposition.

Love having him around. I hope he's here a long time.

I don't think Fast is much like Hags at all to be honest.

Fast has a considerably better shot but is not close to the skater Hags is.

I do think they compliment each other well. Hags can setup Fast
