He also had 3 years left on his deal at a very reasonable/affordable 4mil per. Just not a good comparable IMO.

As far as Gomez has good value, I think I understand what you are saying. He has good value to MTL because they have no one in the system at this moment to play 2nd line minutes, so MTL is not just going to give him away. But that doesn't mean he has good trade value to other teams.
I don't think Horton is anywhere close to 230lbs...Neely whipped him into shape when he arrived...
