Hayes' physicallity really faded as his season with the Hawks went along and it was a big reason he was scratched in the first place. He was good in the playoffs.. but I wouldn't expect him to be that consistently physical over a 82 game season. He's not the answer playing with Toews/Kane, if that's the route they decide to go.. as someone else mentioned, they'll need someone more experienced in that role. Someone like Clowe or Hartnell.. not that I'm saying either is available.
