I mean, he kills me out there. I rip my hair out because of him. But the bottom line is that somehow, someway, he scores goals. Don't see the harm in keeping him around when I'm honest.
I agree 100%.

Moving Nitty won't save money, especially if we want to have a decent back-up that doesn't cost a lot. We don't really have any NHL back-up goalies in our system except for Aubin and I'd rather have Nitty.

If we move anyone, its Lupul. Love Lupul, but it's purely based on his salary for next year. He's just getting too much for what he does or doesn't do. At least with Hartnell we get a PKer, and even then he still has a high contract. Gotta make a cut somewhere and the best place to start is with a 3rd line player who gets over-paid.
