If another team thinks they can get Hartnell to return to form the Flyers would be foolish not to attempt to trade him, and tell Hartnell he is no longer a top 6 player for this system.
I can imagine he has another ~25-25-50 season in him... I reckon a few teams around the league do as well.

I imagine he ends this season pacing for over 40.

He still holds some decent value I imagine for certain teams... for all his faults. He is the kind of player who GM's fall unfathomably in love with... lets just hope there are a few GMs in the current crop who feel that way.
