His contract is good value for his production last season, sure. He's struggled coming back from the injury this year, and he seems more inclined to take the sort of stupid penalties that he did a few years ago--maybe a product of frustration. I expect he'll rebound next year.

That said, I still think Bobby Ryan holds more value than Hartnell. He's signed for two more years after this one at a cap hit that's only slightly higher than Hartnell's (5.1 v. 4.75).

Maybe it is a swap neither team does, but it certainly isn't one that Anaheim would be interested in (at least not until Ryan is a pending UFA in 2015)
