Why would Florida make any of those deals? Please read my post above which explains why Florida likely wouldn't be interested in Cammelleri or Sarich. Specifically, if they think Horton makes too much (5 years left on his contract at $4M per year), why would they want to acquire an impending UFA who will get more than $4M annually on a long-term contract (Cammelleri) and a #4/#5 defenceman that still has 4 years remaining on his contract that pays him $3.6M annually (Sarich)?

AGain, Florida would likely want to receive a combination young, cheap players; top prospects; and/or high draft picks for Horton. They're not going to give Horton away for players who do not fit their long-term plan.
