One of the best things about Hartnell is he scores his 20-25 goals regardless of who his centerman is. He has done it with a run and gun guy like like Carter, a two way guy like Richards, a shoot first guy like Briere, and a playmaker like Giroux.
His worse regular season as a Flyer was 2010 but he then more made up for it by busting out in the playoffs in 2010.
Ha! No offense taken
I have been a Flyers fan since they joined the NHL in 1967. Being as how I'm originally from the UK, our coverage was merely through my subscription to The Hockey News publication ( which always arrived two weeks late, thanks to our crappy postal service).
I now live in South Jersey, but I'm not able to follow them as closely as I wish, ( I'm a chef, and my work consumes most of my time).
When I do get a chance to view a game, I've been disappointed with Hartnell's playing. He should play more like Tocchet used to play. Get in front of the net, piss off the opposition's goalie and defense, and scoop in rebounds. What I see him doing too often of late, is trying to be a finesse player. That ain't his game, and the sooner he gets back to parking in front of the goalie's again can't come soon enough for me.
