At that point, Scott Hartnell had:
-scored 25 goals once
-a career year with 48 pts
-scored more than 40 pts two times in 6 years in the NHL
Philly gave him

this off-season. It was a lot when he signed the contract, sure. But the year after the cap was 56.7m. The contract only had a 0,074 portion of their cap, which is compare able not to 5.95m per but 5.2m per with a 71m cap. A 700k "diffrence". When the contract went out the porition of the cap was 0.06 which is compare to 4m this off-season.
