Even at his current salary of $3.5M once they sign Rask there will be little left for Horton.

San Jose is in the same boat with Clowe. If the season gets cancelled both will be UFA's and there is a pretty good chance they move on.
Adding both would change the culture of our club in a big way.

Doesn't Horton play RW though? That's the crappy part because we are absolutely stacked at RW. Clowe IMO would be a target that I'd go after with a fury. I'm liking Hartikainen's chances more and more of being a 3rd wheel on one of our top 2 lines to do the grunt work and keep the puck in deep. Having two horses in the top 6 to compliment our skill IMO is the way to go.
