A post by Bill Meltzer on what Scott Hartnell's next contract should look like led to a discussion in the comments on today's Fly-By of what he is worth. I decided to take a look at what we should expect from him going forwards.

Was his production this year really an outlier?

A lot of people have proposed that Hartnell made a big jump forwards this year because he was on Claude Giroux's wing, and that this sort of production is what we should expect of him when paired with a superstar playmaker.

What is Scott Hartnell worth? How many years should the Flyers extend him?

Personally, I think Hartnell will get something in the area of 4 years at $5.0 million a year. Is that what he is worth? Probably not (Sorry Scott). He's worth more around the $4.0 to $4.5 million range, but with the way salaries have jumped in the recent past just about everyone is commanding more money in this NHL.
