Hmm what's the point of Hartfords best scorer on the 4th line? I don't know but tell us who should he take over for on the right side on the top two lines? Jagr or Shanny?
Don't think it's an excuse but rather an unfortunate truth.

A guy who scores 8 goals and 2 assists is not the center you play a 30 goal scorer with.

Betts is a 4th line center. Now he's good at being a 4th line center, and he's a good defensive player but this isn't a move that "balances" anything. This is a move that just does not maximize assets.
