Huh, I see this as a win for the Flyers as they get a younger player that has close to the same offensive output this season, but guess what? Hartman plays about 13min/game (3rd-4th line) and doesn't get any pp time either, while Simmonds has been getting 16min/game (2nd line) and pp time. Simmonds likely will look for the highest buyer come this offseason, so he is likely to play really hard for Nashville, but hard to say if he is capable of doing so in a helpful way (he does have a **** load of penalties this season, more so than Hartman, which is saying something). Hartman could very well be a much better offensive player in a bigger role with the Flyers and will likely be relatively cheap to sign longterm. Plus, they get a 4th rnd pick, and maybe it becomes a 3rd!!!
