Hartnell is on pace for 18 goals this year, making the 30 he had last year an aberration, meaning he's a 20-25 goal guy. $4.25mm a year is a lot for what he brings.
I think there's a lot more aberrational down scoring going on with this club than any previous aberrational up scoring.

Hartnell's career post-lockout:

25 in 81
22 in 64 (28 in 82)
24 in 80 (first year here, and that 24 is remarkable if you recall his first half)
30 in 82

That's pretty consistent 25-30 production as opposed to 20-25, and $4.25M (given the fact that he actually hits people, and plays in front of the net) really ain't that much for that. He's also not a dick like someone like Avery.
