Horton has the not-inconsiderable advantage of having worked under Martin, so the Habs would have excellent scouting on him.

How so? AKost is a top-six player and for his salary the Habs are unlikely to find as good or better. Malone or Horton would only complete the top-six of Cammy-Gomez-Gionta-AKost-Pleks-whoever. I certainly wouldn't feel confident slotting Pouliot in a top-six role if I were Gauthier.

Sorry, but knowing the matchups Plekanec gets, not a chance. Even if he gets sheltered and Gomez does the Plekanec work, it's still very unlikely.
