Hartnell always has droughts like this, but his stats prove he is good for 20 goals almost every season, providing truculence in the top 6. I think they might keep the dialog open, especially if both teams continue their poor play.
Coburn is too unintelligent of a player to take over a #1 role. If we are acquiring a defenceman I sure as hell hope it's for someone a lot better.
