Especially for a team/market like Philly, that rarely has trouble finding quality UFAs to fill up their cap space.

How much value for Hartnell? I'm not saying it's negligible, (but I'm only not saying that because of his strong playoff), but what sort of "return" would you really expect to convince you to give up the cornerstone that is Scott Hartnell?
First off, you might as well just cool it with the sarcasm, because no one is calling Scott Hartnell a "cornerstone" player. We get it, you don't think he's that valuable, and you're entitled to your opinion.

That said, he has considerably more value than a UFA who is going to hit the open market in two weeks. Add that to the fact that the Flyers don't need to clear salary to sign Mason. Add that to fact that there aren't alot of #1 goalie openings available, and Mason is going to have a hard time securing his "value" in monetary terms (much like Biron last year).

If the Blues want to trade his rights to the Flyers in a package for Hartnell, why don't you tell us what else they have to offer Philly?
