I don't think Haskell's syntax itself is too hard, it's more that you are used to handle things iteratively, with a main function and just running command after command exactly the way you put it.

I've taken the challenge to write a simple 'ai' for a simple game and while it was difficult it gave me an interesting look at Haskell and functional programming. Over and over again I run into situations in imperative languages where I would love to use functional aspects. I'm not trying to convince you to try Haskell, because I don't know if I'll ever use it for anything like that again, but it certainly gave me another perspective at programming.
