Without a doubt, I think HAGS is best as a 3rd liner..Miscast as anything above that......I'm hoping there he can use his assets to make a contribution.... but there is also no doubt that he has to play smarter, play more consistent (both ways) and produce a bit...I think he can, but it's also very valid to be worried that he won't be able to...it's up to him
