Any "novice" or expert level fan such as yourself - can see that Hartnell has played very poorly this season. He has always had the propensity - when in doubt or under pressure - to whack the puck blindly across the ice resulting in a turnover. Although his play has improved the past few weeks - this season he's done a lot of that and it's ended up in the Flyers net. He can be very effective even though he's a poor skater (by NHL standards). But when the guy is on his ass every shift - it's not a good thing.
And I didn't even have to "watch the old clips" to figure all that out. Maybe I'm somewhere between novice and expert.
