The Rangers have some capable players at the left wing position. Hagelin can create many scoring chances with his blazing speed. Kreider is a young forward with a nose for the net. Obviously, we have seen what Nash brings to the table. Size, strength, and scoring ability. Three qualities that create a powerhouse forward.
I feel the x-factor at LW will be Kreider. In the few games that he played under former head coach John Tortorella, he showed true potential. But Tortorella never gave him a chance. Under Alain Vigneault, he will be playing in a much more offense-minded system, which will present him with great opportunities.
