Hartnell ready for fresh start with Flyers

http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/...th_Flyers.html

Quote:
After beginning last season out of shape and then suffering a broken left foot and never getting into a rhythm, shaggy-haired Flyers left winger Scott Hartnell is a new player this year.

Leaner. Faster. More driven.

"He's in the best shape of his life," general manager Paul Holmgren said after Monday's practice in Voorhees. "His body fat is 7 percent lower than it's ever been, so he did the work in the offseason that we asked him to do."

When Hartnell returned after missing 16 games because of his injury, "he was probably in worse shape than when he broke his foot because he couldn't do anything," Holmgren said. "But to his credit, he came back and he tried out there. There were games where he looked OK, and other games where he looked like he couldn't keep up. He admitted to me in his end-of-year meeting, 'I looked like a third-line player.' "

Holmgren chuckled.

"I think my comment was, 'Yeah, and a bad one.' But like I said, he did the work. I'm happy and proud of him for doing it. Now he has to continue it."

Classic Homer.

I hope so. Hartnell may just be my favorite guy on the Flyers to root for.

Yea, hopefully he won't throw his glove at someone on breakaway this season.

That's awesome to hear that he appears to be in the best shape ever. That will hopefully go a long way and he can get back to the 30+ goal mark.

that's a big reason i chose him for my fantasy hockey team. I'm hoping him and Giroux can find magic together again this season

I would like to see Hartnell play on the 2nd line with Vinnie just because of his size and grit. Leave the top line speedy with Voracek, Giroux and insert Read.
2nd Line Simmer, Vinnie and Harts.

Such a shame his redirection from G's pass against Toronto went just wide.
