Not enough scoring upside IMO when you consider we have Stone, Prince, Puempel, Noesen all fighting for roster spots in the next seasons.

With that being said, I'd really like to see us draft Hartman as a replacement for Neil (with more upside) down the line.
I would be amazed if that happened Neil was our best player throughout most games of the playoffs & Smith played very well as well. While I agree that we need to start looking at a replacement for Neil throughout the draft Ottawa does have Darren Kramer in Bingo who plays a similar game. Before the knockout I would have thought DD could be a replacement as well but there is always the possibility of trading for a guy like that. The NYR missed Prust so badly they had to go & trade for Clowe, hopefully Ottawa is stupid enough to trade Neil.
