No doubt he and his agent see that. Although they were not used in the same way by AV.

Miller was on the PP while KH played on the PK and took defensive draws for example.

I'd put the chances he is moved by the deadline at 95%.

Best of luck to him he has done everything NY asked him to do. Having said that I suppose there is more than half a chance he returns to NY to play for coach Quinn as those 2 have known each other for some time and Hayes was one of a few players on hand when Quinn was introduced as the new coach.

So a deadline deal and returning to NY ? sure but the issue is going to be the cap hit. Zucarello took less to stay and he is still there. Callahan wanted more and went away.

How is Hayes going to handle this situation ?
