I've been the first to bash Hainsey in the past.

Last year, I've seen him firsthand, take the puck off the opening faceoff of a period wait about 5 or 6 seconds for a play to develop, and then simply fire it down the ice for an icing without pressure.

So ya, he makes bone headed plays, but he also has played pretty solid in his own zone, and the tandem of hainsey and bogo seem to work well together and is currently our best pairing by far, imo. Maybe my expectations have changed since last year, but I've been pretty surprised he's been as effective as he has.

He's not in the running for the Norris, by any stretch, but imo he's been solid and needs to take the minutes Clitsome, Stuart and Postma can't take.
