You don't pay a guy 6M who started the year on the 4th line. Hartsy had a great year, but he has shown to be inconsistent and is not a superstar in this league.

The Flyers will wait to see what the new CBA brings before they do anything with him. As noted above, we need more defense, not offense. If he wants too much money, fine let him walk. We will have Couts, Schenn & Voracek a year older. We also have to keep in mind G will be getting top dollar in 2014, likely 8M or so.

2014 also sees raises for Couts, Schenn, Mez and Read (who may walk). Not saying I want Hartnell gone, but we do have plenty of depth and most teams don't have a guy like Sean Couturier on their 4th line.

I'd be happy with 4.75M / 5 years or 5M / 3 years.
