This has nothing to do with Pittsburgh being the center of the hockey world, and everything to do with exactly what I explained: that Pittsburgh's entire philosophy is based around active defensemen making quick retrievals and moving the puck up-ice as fast as possible. This system is even implemented organization-wide to make for easy transitions.

And of all the things that could hold Harrington back from making a club, skating is not one of them. It is simply not an area of weakness, and seems a very curious criticism to make for anyone who's seen him play. Pure shutdown defensemen who skate as well as Harrington aren't common...which is a good part of why he was chosen to play that role against the best of his peers at the WJCs, for the country with the deepest defense pool in the world.

I guess based off that, you should really hang on to Harrington. You'll need him.
That's right, we will. Because most of our big-league defense was a joke last year when we needed it.
