The pieces just don't fit together. Same old story again.
Hartnell and Simmonds both are solid players and may be very valuable to the right team, Simmer even more so because of his age.
I'm less concerned about Simmonds because he is just about to enter his prime years and he has at least shown flashes of what he is capable of for stretches in between this season where he was generating quality scoring chances for his linemates. His defensive awareness is pretty bad though and his +/- stats prove it (-9).
Hartnell no longer appears to be a constant top-6 player, let alone a first liner. He can still hit the back of the net but is struggling to get in the right places. And on top of it some of his former toughness has just disappeared.
