3. Hartnell's playstyle and production has remained largely consistent at the same level.
4. Hartnell was a UFA when signed to his last contract and is a UFA once again.
So basically, points 1 and 2 are the only possible outcomes to effect his salary in any significant way.
Unfortunately for Hartnell, these two factors may either counter each other or, should the salary cap drop with a new CBA, actually hurt him.
He will not be getting a significant raise either way; not unless he pulls 65 points again this season. I don't see that happening.
Wouldn't hartnell's age be trending upwards? He's not getting any younger
