Not only is Harrington mobile (based on scouting reports and multiple first-hand viewings of the WJCs and Knights), but Pittsburgh's entire philosophy is predicated on quick puck retrieval and transition (for better or worse). If the Pittsburgh staff identified him as a guy who could execute Penguins hockey, then his skating can make it anywhere.

But I'm sure Boucher's 1-3-1 would require way too much of him :

Harrington is mobile, but I still don't think hes mobile enough for here. Excuse me for thinking that Pittsburgh isn't the pinnacle of the hockey world. As for the video, its easy to cherrypick:

I guess based off that, you should really hang on to Harrington. You'll need him.
