    Just my opinion Hayes to me comes across as a guy that takes his foot off the gas once he signs a long term deal. Maybe it's just the look on his face that makes me think that. I've questioned his effort at times during his time here and no I'm not blaming AV for that.

The law of averages also does not favor a long unconcussed and otherwise healthy tenure for Zib. If we give him a one year deal and trade him at the deadline, the late first rounder we get in return will have about a one in five chance of becoming a player of Hayes' quality, and that will be in about four years. Given that Hayes is of little use for two thirds of a season on a rebuilding team, it would be better if they must trade him to do it now, when they'd get something more than the late first rounder. Letting Hayes go is a recipe for Buffaloication: a disease characterized by the stockpiling of picks that rarely amount to much. Garth Snow is now in long term therapy for this condition.
    Hayes isn't playing the same role as Zib or Chytil.

    Isnt that a reason to keep Hayes, at least short-term?

    It's neither here nor the Z and Chytil as unrelated to conversation of Hayes. Maybe Lias, but doesn't matter. Jury is out with time to decide there.

    No, because he is potentially playing the role that Andersson or Howden are lining up to take by (I'm hoping) mid season.

    Usually 90% of the "UFA's to be" gets signed before they get there tho.
