This team needs to get bigger and tougher at forward, not the opposite. That is why you don't trade Hartnell. Also, Hartnell doesn't get the credit he deserves from this fan base. Yes, he has some limitations such as his poor skating, and yes he can act like a dumbass at times. That being said, other than the throw away season where he was going through a divorce he has 24, 30, and 24 goals since coming here. Compare that to similar players with similar contracts (Malone, Penner, Horton) and Hartnell fills his role just fine for this team.
