that was the past and this is the present. Hartnell is 10th in ice time among forwards (close to Nodl for 11th) through 2 games and has the 2nd highest cap hit on a team with cap issues. THey also have a good prospect likely to be called up soon to make him more irrelevant. In the past he got PP time and he's not going to sniff that role right now...he can't even keep up on this team and needs to get it in gear quick.
