Horton is playing great hockey this season. He's using his body and creating opportunities for himself and for his linemates as well. Big body with some grit. That's the kind of player we need. Horton could definitely be a 30-30 guy playing with Gaborik.

30 goal scorers aren't falling out of trees in the NHL. Only 39 people scored 30 or more last season. That's barely enough for one 30 goal scorer per team. I think 'settling' for a consistent 25ish goal guy is a pretty good move at this point.
I just don't like it. Seems like a lateral move. Unfortunately, I don't think Sather can fix the problems on this team this year. I'm hoping for Sather to put in an offer sheet for Bobby Ryan in the offseason. Now there's your goalscoring powerfoward. Imagine him and Grachev as a one-two punch tearing down the wing.
