I couldn't believe how fired up he was about the labour issues during the lockout...I don't agree with Lawless too often, but I've never agreed with him more than when he said "if Hainsey showed this kind of battle in his everyday game as an NHLer, he'd be a lot more useful." Amen!
If he does really "roll out the carpet" for the other team... how come his results consistently are better than a lot of players who don't "roll out the carpet"???
If he's more effective than he's more effective even if it's in a way that people don't like.
I get it... people want Hainsey to play more physical. I can and do agree with that... it's every other comment that most people say that can erk me.
