what exchange version are you running?
Instead of :
Get-ExchangeServer | where {$_.IsHubTransportServer -eq "true"}
why not simply use :
Get-TransportServer | Get-MessageTrackingLog

A simplified version of your command (without selecting fields etc works like this
$(foreach ($User in GC C:\tmp\userlist.txt) {Get-TransportServer | Get-MessageTrackingLog -Recipients $User })

I'm more used to 2010 but I've just checked and get-trasportserver is supported in both 2007 and 2013 and it certainly seems easier than having to create a server variable.

In the accepted answer, you could just try removing the first line completely and changing the $SVR in line 3 to get-transportserver
This shouldn't change the end result but makes the script more efficient and also more readable.

I wouldn't mind using Get-ExchangeServer or Get-TransportServer unless there are 1000's of servers to query (Even that wont be a problem I guess).. In my environment, I have ~190 exchange servers and around ~36 HUB servers. Both the commands returns the results in a fraction of seconds.. :-)
