Horny is also the logical one displaced by an acquisition of an F and he sure isn't gonna' skate on that Spals line any way you wanna' configure it, which puts his $3mil salary on the Smithson line and the PP. We also save $2mil in salary and I believe we don't lose a ton of production over the next couple years. Of course if we get a C back then all bets are off on what Trotz does with those lines.
Hornqvist leads the team in goalscoring over the last 3 seasons, and pretty handily. He's the only player that we have that's consistently productive in front of the net. I don't get the belief that some have that he's an overrated goalscorer.
