We have numerous players like Lupul already on the team, and numerous players who will bring his skills to the team on their way in the prospect pool. Lupul is redundant; Hartnell is not.
true and id also be looking to acquire someone like that but given the choice between dealing lupul at (2.3) and jones (2.75) to make cap space and get back maybe taylor pyatt(1.5) and a 3rd rd pick. id rather get chris thorburn (600k) for hartnell (4.2). i just the value you lose by dumping them isnt as bad.
i also think sundin brings some needed size to our lineup. he skates so well you forget how big he is.
all that being said if theres value to be had id id rather keep hartnell
