Hartnell will eventually snap out of his horrendous slump (like he seems to every year) and then before you know it he'll be back up there with Giroux.
Well thats fine if they are in a hot streak. It is something that was not happening when Hartnell was on their line. Sure he can snap out of it but i wouldnt kill the rest of the line hoping every game is the game that he does. When he does look normal put him back up there because he earned it, not because of his history. Raffl has earned that spot atm.
