Is it just me or does Hartman pretty much suck this season?

Big drop off from last year. Can’t stay out of the penalty box either.

To be fair, anyone who gets moved off of the Kap-Zucc line is going to look worse.

The Hartman/Gaudreau/Boldy line is surprisingly not very good.

I agree with all of this. It's almost as if Hartman is acting like an idiot because he is not centering Zucc and KK. I doubt he will be traded away though, as he is at a low cap mark. I think it's time to give it the best shot to fix and move back into the playoffs. The Steel idea should be over. I'm not the really thrilled with this idea, but it's time to move Hartman back in between Zucc and KK. That 2nd line is a disaster...I don't understand why Evason thinks Gaudreau should be playing that high. Bring up both Walker and Rossi, and let them run with Boldy. Trade both Greenway and Dumba. Let Goligoski play and bring Dakota Mermis up as the 7th Dman. Not sure what Guerin will get for Dumba and Greenway.

I am starting to wonder if Guerin is shopping Goligoski, and is still going to be ok with losing Dumba for nothing after the season. Trading away Goose would open up another $2 mil in cap space for next season. Between Goose and Greenway being traded away, that open up about $5 mil in cap space. The Wild are currently sitting with about $9.3 million, and the need resign Addison, Shaw, Duhaime and Gus...and still have to sign 3-4 FAs. I am going to keep saying it, Jonathan Toews is the perfect target for a rental player to center Zucc and KK. Then if someone is struggling on the Boldy line, Hartman can move there, or replace Gaudreau on that 3rd line. And Gaudreau can then move to where he should be on a good team, the 4th line.

He can’t move both Goligoski and Dumba…. This d is aleady lacking… there’s no one to fill the void and certainly no depth at the d positions.

I like Gaudreau, but yore right gus he does not belong in the top 6. And yes I’m am sick to death of watching Greenway be the hardest working non factor on the ice. Seriously, he has little to no impact and takes low percentage shots that ultimately turn the puck over.

Sorry, I guess my post was a little confusing. I believe Dumba will be traded. But just maybe, they played Goose for a couple of games as they are shopping him instead and will just be ok with losing Dumba after the season. I don't think they would try to trade both.
