I don't know what the reasons are for his considerable decline this year (and if the rumors about his personal life are true, then I'd say that's a pretty legitimate reason), but he's gotta get his mind right and his **** together for next season. I really don't see the Flyers trading him this offseason, mainly because he'd fetch basically no value in return, and selling low is always a terrible strategy. It'd be much better to just hope he bounces back in 2010-2011 and then go from there.
maybe, but sometimes you have to disregard sunk costs, and sell low before you sell lower. If moving Harts, even for little return, opens up cap room to address goaltending and line balance, I'm all for it.
