    The more I look at the particulars of this deal, the more I have come to realize that this is Hextall starting to "Sweep out the Barn" before he brings in the new stable of players.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Age, Cap Hit, and Contract term.

    Hartnell is 32 with 5 years left on a $4.7m Cap hit. Umberger is the same age, making about the same hit, but for only 3 years. He is also a penalty killer and play center.

    There was some talk that the Jackets were going to use a compliance buyout on him because he wasn't happy in Columbus.
