    Ryan for Hartnell?

    To be honest (and this from a Flyer fan who goes to a ton of games), Hartnell hasn't really changed his play all that much. He's always been a grind it out type of player who likes to pick in front of the net and mop up dirty goals. The reason he is having such a breakout year is that he is benefiting immensely by Lavs paring him up with Jagr & Giroux.

    There are a lot of trade rumors floating around that the Flyers would deal JVR & Carle and maybe a pick or two for Rick Nash - if that's the case, I'd imagine there would be some line shakeups and it's hard to say exactly where Hartnell would fall into that mix.

    To be fair, he is having a hell of a year so I'm not trying to take anything away from him, but if I had to choose one or the other I'd say he's still more of a sell high kind of guy rather than a legitimate stud for years to come.

    • I would not trade Hartnell for Ryan. Hartnell is having a awesome year and he is in my league's free agency and I want to sign him. So keep Hartnell but if I misread your question. And you were getting Scott Hartnell I would do that deal any day of the week. The only problem is James Van Riemsdyk and some other linemates of Hartnell's are probably getting traded to the Maple Leafs. So that might effect Hartnell's chemistry with his present linemates but he will still be better then Bobby Ryan. Ryan is playing for a bad team (Anaheim that are underachievers) Hartnell plays for a team that makes the playoffs every year.
