harrington has looked better in all the games i have seen, which is just a few. he also was good last year. probably canada's best defensive d-man both years.

ouellet was not as good as harrington, but he is also recovering from injury, and i have not seen nearly enough of him when healthy to make a proper comparison.

i doubt pittsburgh would trade harrington for ouellet, though. harrington seems to me a better NHLer. ouellet is good in most areas, but not great in anything, whereas harrington's D is very good and he is bigger.
