i know hartnell had an "off year" but he didnt seem to physical to me last year. Guys who can by physical and score too! of course every team would like that type of player. I just dont think Hartnell IS that type of player anymore. Richards certainly is, Carter is certainly strong WITH the puck. And as for screening the goalie, while i admit we are lacking in that role heavily, JVR seemed to do a good job of it and i dont think hartnell was anywhere NEAR knuble in front of the net...he took more penalties than he scored goals in the crease...maybe hes not an "in front of the net" type of guy, i dunno...he seemed to work better along the boards two years ago than in front of the net last year.
