I don't think either of them looked slow at all. Hartnell actually looked 10 times better than last year, hoping for a good 25-30 goals from him this year.

I do know both of them are very 'awkward' looking skaters, Simmonds with his chicken legs and Hartnell with his edge losing habits, but neither are 'bad' skaters normally and were not in preseason either.

I always thought Hartnells skating 'woes' were over reactionary as well, I know a lot of it is a joke due to his falling down, but in a straight line the guy has some powerful legs, and gets in good positions with some shiftiness for a bigger guy.
