guy deserves another look. Hope this brings back the 3rd line that was working and Jayes will play with Bolland and Kane.

Yes. It is an admission of a mistake and correction, at least that is what we hope it is.

I'm pretty excited to see how Hayes has progressed. Especially since it looks like he'll be playing with Kane.

Stalberg has done a commendable job of clogging the front of the net on the PP and I think JH will (or should) be tried in the same role. Perhaps on the 2nd PP unit to start.

Another thought that's probably dead wrong: I can understand Q easing Carcillo back into the line-up but I wonder if his knee is still bothering him and he can’t play top 6 minutes even if Q wanted him there?

The 4th as well. Both looked out of place when split up the last 2 games.

that is awesome to hear. the kid gets the call back up and now knows he isnt going to rot on the 4th line.

at 6'6 220 plus, he is that player we lack in our top 6. he has hands and skill to stick in the top 6 until Sharp comes back. I love how they arent messing with the first and third lines, leave them alone. put Jayes right in to take over for Sharp is the smartest move possible.

it is a lot of pressure for the kid to have to play with Kane, but I think his role is simple : dump the puck in or pass it to Kane...then crash the net and park rear infront of goalie...look down and place puck in net...then repeat if necessary!

I think he can be a big asset to this team just like Saad has been. he adds a dimension that we have been missing this entire year. very excited to see him back up here, just hope Q gives him a few games before dumping him to the 4th line if things dont click right away.

His effort level needs to be better than it was last year. It was his own fault that he was in the doghouse.

Let's be honest... that 2nd line has been:

Kane carries and dangles over the blue line... looks for a pass, looks for a pass...

and then either:

A. Shoots if nobody is available
or
B. Finds "xxxxx" open because he's drawn 2+ guys to him.



Insert anyone into "xxxxx" and keep the other 3 lines in tact. The fact that it's a big body that can screen and cause problems doesn't hurt.

Oh yeah, and the rat is on that line too.... good luck with that NHL defenses.

That's all I was really concerned about, that line has been solid.

Hopefully JHayes as a good run with the big team again, but I have low expectations and not too much patience depending how he moves away from the puck.

Q won't use Bickell in that role who is even better suited then Hayes, so 0 chance he used Hayes like that.

This, compare Shaw and Hayes last year, Hayes would take shifts off, not compete 100%, meanwhile Shaw was grinding night in and night out and often outworking almost every player on the ice.

Not sure how you can compare the 2 players. Shaw at 180 lbs soaking wet must play that way to stay in this league. I think Jayes play was a tad inconsistent but in my view, his biggest issue was the way he was utilized by Q. Despite his large frame he is not suited to play 4th line hockey. He needs to play in the top 6, get some PP time under his belt and take advantage of his physical attributes…. and this is a big opportunity for him to play with a great playmaker who will get him the puck. I’m excited to see if he can seize it!

Hayes looked a bit slow and immobile compared to the rest of the forwards last year. So he has to be able to keep up with Kane & Bolland if he is to be effective. That line is pretty weak at maintaining possession in the offensive zone and cycling the puck, particularly with Sharp out. So perhaps Hayes can help that end of it with his size. I definitely remember him being pretty strong on the puck last year, for his age.

keeping up with bolland, who can't even make a decent pass 5v5, shouldn't be a problem.

Yup. Unlike Bickell I see Jayes as a top six or bust player.

To be fair, being on our fourth line is not the punishment it was last year. Still its great to see him getting a shot in an offensive role. His play has merited it.

looked HORRIBLE today

out of place.. because of his turnovers the line couldn't keep possession

I'd send him down and bring up Morin for a go

I didn't see much of the game so I don't know how well Jimmy did overall, but on our goal he got inside position on their defenseman which created a clear shooting lane for Oduya coming in off the point. Kane's pass was ridiculous and everyone saw that, but Jimmy's positioning was a key part of the goal.
