Would you take back the Scott Hartnell for R.J. Umberger trade?

Let's play a game with hindsight as our friend. It's been about two years since Ron Hextall and the Philadelphia Flyers traded fan favorite Scott Hartnell to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for R.J. Umberger and a fourth round pick in 2015. It was a trade that was widely disliked in Philadelphia, and to this day remains one of the few blemishes on Hextall's record as a general manager. The Flyers traded a top-6 forward for a clearly inferior player. It wasn't a good trade. But even in criticizing the move, we recognized some positives in it -- notably, that Umberger's bad contract...

Elliotte Friedman reported in his 30 thoughts column that the Blue Jackets have asked Hartnell to provide a list of teams he would accept being traded to, and by his report and the follow up report from Aaron Portzline, it's not a small list. Hartnell, who scored his 300th career goal during a 49 point campaign last season, still carries a $4.75 million cap hit through 2019. The...
