interesting, it'd be awesome if Hayes could become even a third line power forward. He would really add some depth on the wing as well as a different style of play.

For those who have followed his play this year, do you think he'll ever make it?? or is it too tough to say with him?

i saw him play once this year... so easy to spot cause he towered over everyone but he didn't the net at all...

mind you, while i like going to college hockey games (only $10), the level of hockey isn't even close to junior hockey, they have speed but no toughness to the game, lots of unfinished checks and lack of really driving the net hard... i blame the full cages and lack of fighting...

Good interview, I'll be keeping a good eye on him next year. It'll be fun to see him and Kreider rip it up next year.

Hopefully he'll turn out.


BC plays Miami tonight in the Frozen 4 semi's. There's a stream at http://atdhe.net/index.html

starts at 8:30 if you want to see him (and Jarod Palmer if you want)

It's hard to tell his potential because he is an extremely raw prospect who is starting to get used to his body but needs to polish his talent a lot. However he has tremendous upside to be a top 6 player but obviously right now he is not considered to have top 6 potential but that can change. It will be at least 2-3 years before he even plays a game in the NHL, a lot can change by that time so who knows. It's great to see him playing well and I hope he can continue.

Hayes got an assist, and he screened the goaltender for another goal that I don't think he got a point for...

1G, 1A so far... games pretty much over. It looking like Hayes' goal might end up being the winning goal in a Boston 7-1 lead right now.

I, like many people here, never seem to give Hayes a lot of attention as a real future player for us, but I always really liked the thought of what he would be if he actually developed into a top 6 NHL forward. He reaks of John Leclair, and that's one of the biggest things this team could use next to a #1 center.

Really nice to see him developing like he is.

I watched a good chunk of the game, and he has very good speed and mobility for a player his size. His puck handling is top notch.

The NCAA is not a phyiscal league by any means, but Hayes still needs to use his body more. He's good at sheilding the puck with his size, and driving the net, but it would be really nice to see him lay out a couple of checks, and be a force physically.

I can see Alexei Ponikarovsky potential with Hayes, maybe even higher.

Its nice to see Hayes developing and climbing towards his potential.

Even though we drafted him in the 4th round he was at one point ranked in the top 10 of that draft class by McKenzie (as well as Stefanovich).

You are thinking of Stefanovich who was the 4th rounder. Hayes was a late 2nd rounder, using a pick acquired from Pittsburgh for Hall Gill, if I recall rightly.

Hayes wil be an excellent payer, great pick by the Leafs brass. . .

He will be a Hobey Candidate in 2 years, watch,

He will be no less than a 2nd line forward for us in about 4 years (2 more at Boston Colege, and 2 more on the Marlies)

He's aready on a point per game pace in his sophmore year,

which means he's on pace, in his senior year to project about 40 gp 25 g 32 a 57 pts... great college numbers . .

Just some comparisons of other NHLers Senior year in College: Parise- 55 pts
Kessel- 51 pts
Kesler- 31 pts
Van Riemsdyk (who Hayes will probably be like the most out of the list) 40 pts in his 2nd season in College) and he is a top prospect,

In Hayes 2nd year this year in College he had 32 points,

Not far behind Van Riemsdyk who went 2nd overall, they're the same age and Hayes can turn into a steal for us from the 2nd round , i'm happy we picked him

Start thinking JVR when talking about Hayes, we have one, Hayes should start being talked about more

Little bit confused here. Are you saying college hockey isn't as good as junior hockey? NCAA is a far higher level of hockey than something like major junior. Alot has to do with age, but in terms of which is higher, it is college by a longshot.

There is no way the NCAA is a far higher level than the CHL. The CHL vs NCAA is a major debate in the world of hockey and there is a pretty lengthy thread on the prospects board IIRC.
