Both have been a lot better recently, Simmonds especially.

Simmonds is now on pace for ~22 goals, 27 assists and 49 points. After last years pace of 27-31-58.

In the last 82 games he has 25-29-54... add in the season before where he got 49 points and that is 164 games where he has been a 25 goal and ~50 point player.

Simmonds in actually 36th in the NHL in goals since the start of 11-12. Giroux and Hartnell are tied 41st and Voracek is 44th.

Simmonds GPG is very similar to JVR, Duchene and D. Sedin in that time. Though tbf Hartnell is above all of them due to 11-12.

Hartnell is almost back on pace for 0.5PPG. But 26 in his last 65 (33 point pace) is not pretty, and mirrors his overall play in that time.

I do think Hartnell is the odd man out really.

I just wish Simmonds was better defensively... he tries, but Hartnell was very very solid in his own end on the sly for most of his career.
