Nice job as always, Jeff, even despite the MSU references... I agree completely about Hayes. I think people confuse hope and expectation with reality sometimes. Fro and Bick have been disappointing and we all hope Hayes can play at the NHL level, however, I didn't see anything exceptional in his debut. More games and more time will hopefully improve his game and confidence to the point he can become a difference maker. The kid has size which the Hawks need. We'll see.
Sorry, Dan. Tough to hear Abdelkader's name and not think good things initially. Only MSU national title I've been able to celebrate in the last 11 years. Regarding Hayes, we're on the same page. He may come out Monday and be a minus-3 with two penalties and get beat on three goals. Let's just relax.
