if he can put up a solid year offensively this year with similar defensive stats... its going to show just how hard working and complete of a player hes becoming. probably should be a Selke candidate if he does.
I think you're confusing the people who take Horcoff's counting numbers and bash him, with the people who look at his contributions to the team at even strength and on the PK and like him.

Most of the "stat-heads" I've seen like (or love) Horc as a player.
