We do build around Hartnell and he has been part of the best line for the Flyers since 2010 when Leino-Briere-Hartnell was tearing it up in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Just wanted to point out that the Hartnell-Carter-Lupul line was out best line in 08-09 too.
I'd say a roster player of Hartnell's caliber for a pending UFA w/ no guarantees is a no go for the flyers. If that's really what he costs I don't think any team would be stupid enough to put a package together for him short of there being conditions involved in the deal.
Ehh it's a 1st round pick and Smith Pelly if Perry wants out. He's a 37 goal scorer with gritt upfront who is also healthy who's ALSO played all 82 game seasons 2 seasons in a row? How is this way to much explain to me?
