Real value, if you ask me.
They were both 6 yr contracts...

So basically he's improved, putting up 56 percent of his NHL points in the six yrs here in philly (it should also be mentioned that we're counting his 32 games last yr as a season, meaning his ppg numbers since he came to philly is substantially better when compared to his time in nashville). And as far as his new contract is concerned I'm not all too thrilled with it either but tell me you wouldn't rather have Hartnell at 4.75 compared to say Clarkson at 5.25 per. The price of these guys has gone up with the cap, though not necessarily proportionally, so this is league wide not just the Flyers.

Hartnell if healthy can still help this team.
