Hartnell, if he had not had injuries, would have potted 25 goals this year on the Predators.....that says a lot. Also, the Sens get a powerforward that is gritty and not afraid to stick up for his teammates. He is a leader on the ice, and a wonderful character guy to boot.......not to mention his low salary and age.
Agreed, this makes a lot of sense for the sens. Now the deal might need to be tweaked a touch to even things out but this deal almost certainly makes sense. And if Havlat was good at playing his off wing, he would be doing it by now.
