I'm not saying Lats is better than Horton though.
How much longer are people going to milk this “16 goals for 2 straight seasons” crap?
Dagenais had 17 goals once.
Fact remains that despite some nice goal scoring totals, he is far away from an NHL player. Nathan Horton is the complete package. An actual PF centre who plays hard and has heart. And 40 goals is not just a fantasy for him, it is a realistic expectation that is 1-2 years away, especially on a good team.
I know you aren’t saying Lats is better than Horton, but you know there are people here who wouldn’t make that trade. Which absolutely boggles my mind because it is doubtful that Latendresse ever even becomes as good as Horton is today. Montreal would make that trade and laugh all the way to the bank with a proven 25-30 goal scoring centre who is gigantic and 23 years old.
Yours in Christ,
