I am not referring to defensive play. I'm talking about well rounded offensive abilities. Hartnell has good vision, can skate with the puck, can control play (at times).

Hornqvist is kind of a one trick pony. Excellent front of the net work and willpower. He lacks overall "hockey skills". I don't think there is a comparable for him, because I don't think you find someone who can score 30 goals with such a limited skill set.

I provided the comparables because people were suggesting there were none. But the point is moot. I think it's a decent deal and I'm glad to have him.
