(the only one making less than 4MM). Big, physical wingers you can pretty much bank on to score 20+ goals a year. And you can question how effective he is night in, night out, but I don't think you can ever really question if he feels like playing on a given night. He's always trying.
It's not his fault they expected him to just fill the void made by Knuble. If anyone's, it's the FO's. It's very arguable they shouldn't have let Knuble go in the first place, and they should've acknowledged those types of players don't often come into their own right away. Hell, Knuble didn't do much til he was 31. Hartnell's
Yeah, I would rather have ALL of these players instead of Hartnell. All you've done there is illustrated just how overpaid Hartnell is, because all of those players are better.
