That's because he's going in alone most times, no puck support at all.
When he and Paajarvi were together, they had some great cycle shifts, some of the best cycle shifts of any Oilers line. If they had a finisher on their line, i'm sure that line would have scored a few goals.
Harti struggled in the top 6 because our top 6 is full of perimeter players. He's better when he has a line partner to cycle with.
