NO, he can't play a Bulis type two way game. While he is effective along the boards, he doesn't have Bulis's speed, intensity, defensive play, anticipation, and work ethic.
I am not giving up on him especially if he can bring what we saw in Hamilton today, but he is in the AHL for a reason. The fact Dagenais is in Montreal right now speaks volumes.
As for Hainsey, no one doubts his skill or potential, but today, once again, he should his immaturity. His behaviour during the interview should be concerning. He is not 18 anymore.
Add Balej, I can't remember anyone who was willing to give up on him. Fact is, he was injured most of last year, and was forgotten do to it.
