His contract is terrible. Not on money, but term. His style of play is not conducive to a long playing career in the NHL. He also makes a lot of dumb plays and penalties on the ice. I rather get out of his contract while still able to. That way you don't lose him for nothing. I don't care that the cap is going up in the future. $4.75M isn't exactly chump change. I think the Flyers can resign Downie, has grit too, for cheaper than what Hartnell makes.
