You could make the argument for a couple other guys when considering PPG pace and shuffling lines, but all things considered, it really isn't that bad.
coincidence that the teams from those players listed above are among the best in the league?

I just don't think Hartnell's a top line player anymore. We really need a scorer with Giroux, I can't see Hartnell sniffing 30 again the way he's played the last 2 years.

He'd be a great 2nd line guy or even 3rd liner if we want to put him with Couts, but not really a top liner.
I'm wit chu.
