Horton may be the better goal scorer of the two, but Pleks scored more points last year and has had a continual upswing in production, while Horton has had 62 points the last two seasons in a row...and yet people like to think that Horton has more potential and that it is untapped.
Ummm Montreal had the best pp last year and the season prior to that, alot of Kovalevs and Pleks points were results of this, the panthers probably were not that impressive with the man advantage and Horton probably worked harder for the pts he got.
