The unit succeeded with Horcoff in that role, even when he wasn't putting up goals. True, he might not be a wizard in front of the net like Smyth is. I'd argue that Horcoff is better at cycling the puck and passing it though. I remember him setting up a few goals that Smyth probably wouldn't have been able to. Either way, both of them are going to end up on the power play. I don't think it would make too much of a difference if they switched units.
