Part of that answer will come from him and how he plays and we will start him in the middle but depending on how the other guys play. How will Dominic Moore play, how will Jarret Stoll play, how will Oscar Lindberg play. Can any of those guys play the wing? Are we a better team with Hayes on the third line or with him on the wing whether that be on the third line or in the top-six. What is JT going to do? Quickie?
