Horcoff-hate can be blamed on Oilers managment using him as a first line centre and trying to convince the fan base that he was. He is a very good 3rd line centre that can fill into the top six after an injury.
Completely agree.
Although part of the issue before was that the team was so thin up the middle that Horcoff was severely over hurt his game.

I really like the Hartikainen, Horcoff and Smyth line. Hartikainen adds a very physical element to a couple of veteran players eating up tough minutes. If Hartikainen can manage to successfully play tough minutes on a consistent basis he will become a very valuable player on this team.
