Thank God, I wouldn't have wanted him in the division elsewhere.
I like the way Haley plays--just don't see him becoming as good a player as Prust became. That doesn't mean he won't get to play for the Rangers. He seems to be getting banged up a bit this year--some of his fights he's been overmatched. He's really not that big of a guy and when he goes against real goons with size he has some problems. Very tough player but he doesn't exactly fit the profile of what a goon is. PJ Stock comes to mind.
