I think what gets lost, Harrington has a shot and a half. He was firing the puck in the low-90's before he was even drafted.
I kind of see him as a Niclas Lidstrom without the big offensive game.

From Wikipedia: The secret behind Lidström's consistent play is his ability to read the game; this, combined with his excellent skating ability, allows him to be at the right spot of the ice at the right time. Instead of delivering a big body check, Lidström prefers to steal the puck and create a turnover. His reliance on brains rather than brawn might explain his lack of injuries, and also his low penalty minute totals.
