Hags is definitely the type of player who can contribute even without racking up huge point totals, though that would be a major bonus. I don't expect him to ever have great hands but any work he could do in that area would help because he has impressive physical gifts (mainly his skating). My major concern when it comes to him is picking up sloppy penalties. He avoided a call on what was most likely a trip in Tampa (I was there and I think it was in the 1st period but I'm not positive) and he's ended up in the box a few times over the last two years in bad spots. If he can cut out the penalties, chip in when he can, and continue to fly over the ice like he already does, he'll be a very valuable player for years to come.
