From what I can judge (based on one TV viewing, highlights, box scores, and reading game reports/assessments) Horvat is the catalyst offensively.
You put him out to get a goal, to keep a lead, to kill a penalty, to score on the PP.....
Yes, London has a good team, that always seems to produce, but Horvat's production + skill + effort + intangible leadership qualities is a 1st rounder in my books.
I may have communicated poorly what I said. I don't believe Horvat is without offensive gifts, to go along with his physical and defensive value, I just don't buy truly significant offensive upside. In a strong class, you would need that to get into my top 30.
Also re: Kujawinski, I was talking to a Head Scout about him and he kind of echoed what some of the posts here discuss. He told me that he's a hard working player, who can at times flash quality offensive ability, but is inconsistent in that area and some nights looks very average offensively.
