    You'll see that players like hartnell are streaky players and look great for a period and shitty for a period. He's not an elite winger, but he also doesnt get paid like one.

    The going rate for the top players. Some not even elite is 8 million AAV plus. Hartnell is 4.7. His AVV is slotted right where it should be.


    And I would not be disappointed if he was moved down to the second line or even the third if the Flyers could snag another one of those 8 million dollar type players to play with Giroux. But they dont have one right now, and it is what it is.
    IMO he's not a top line player on other teams but he is here. I would still like to see them get a sniper for the top line. Maybe during the off-season, move him down but keep him on the 1st line PP, he has good chemistry there.

    Maybe the expectation is too high for him? Maybe people don't like the contract? Who knows.

    I kinda get where SunMo is coming from though, if you hate a player you hate a player...to me Downie can do no right, he could score 7 goals in the next 3 games and I'll still hate him lol

    I've turned on downie. I was one of his biggest supporters, but I dont see any positives right now.

    Assuming the NHL will grow into a product capable of paying third line players nearly 5 million dollars is moronic.

    Maybe he's still loopy from the concussion? He played well when he first got here but ever since that concussion he's looked like the "old" Downie...dumb offensive zone penalties, temper and just being a loose cannon.

    I'd much rather see Raflecopter move up in the lineup and move Downie down...or just ban him from the stadium...whatever is easier.

    uh, the Sixers forum is pretty lively and we're working on a new banner. You'll be able to embarrass yourself soon enough there too.

    The cap is already going to surpass what it was at the end of the last CBA next season. So unless top players are going to be making 15 million a year, then you .... once again.... will be wrong. But you're used to that.
