If you're considering a downgrade on talent because of character issues, i have to think that's a mistake. Obviously if everything else is equal then you take the kid with a good head on his shoulders.

I completely agree that Mo probably isn't in on him though
I like the direction our team and prospects are heading, character guys you need not worry about, selfish players can be a cancer to the team, rather have all pulling the rope rather a few. It's not worth it if we can get a character guy who is also good on the ice. Ryan Callaghan is a good example of this, and Hartman is this sort of player.
