He's had some great games this year but he's essentially a decent defenceman who is responsible in his own zone. He's not physical and he can't clear the crease. He doesn't generate a lot of offense (12 points combined in last 2 seasons). I know saying negative things about Hainsey is sacrilege on this board, but $4 million for him is too much.
It's not sacrilege to to say bad things... go scroll to Giroux's PP goal and I got angry at him.
The problem is people hating on him cos of his style even when it is effective.
That said looking at recent signings 3.0-3.5 is him not 4.
