If your definition of inconsistent rests on the incredibly narrow window of game-to-game, then, yes, every player in the NHL is inconsistent.

However, that's not how consistency/inconsistency is defined.

You question Hartnell.

Scott Hartnells career PPG is 0.53. It was 0.54 last year. 6 of the 9 seasons Hartnell has played in the NHL have fallen at a PPG rate between 0.50 and 0.61.

But, really, if you want to look at Hartnell... PPG isn't as helpful, cuz he isn't really an assist guy.

So, why was Hartnell a disappointment last year? His GPG fell to 0.17.

Hartnell's career GPG: 0.03, 0.19, 0.15, 0.31, 0.31, 0.34, 0.30, 0.37, 0.17

So, you ask what Hartnell we might expect? I expect something in the 0.30-0.35 GPG range ideally... lets peg him for 25 goals, and 25 assists. He's been pretty consistent in achieving those types of totals if he plays a full season.
