I think that there are a lot of teams that would kill for Scott Hartnell, because even if he doesn't pan out as a scoring power forward, I get the feeling that he would literally go to war in the name of his team.
when doan was 22, he was slower AND skinnier(if that makes sense). its a pretty good comparison - hartnell will put on the muscle in time and unless injuries hamper him he'll probably work a lot on the skating. hartnell is far more noticeable shift to shift than doan was at that age - i think he'll be better than doan. doan wasnt making half the impact hartnell does at 22, he took a long time.
