But I guess it could make sense as 'succession plan' to Spooner. I said the other day that I had a hard time seeing how Spooner fit into this team's future plans. The top6 is pretty set and the thought of a Peverley-Spooner line seemed very light to me (see Colt's thread). But I've often thought Spooner could come into the league and be a lot like Peverley (at first). He's fast and creative. He can play center and wing. He could slide up into the top-six as needed. He can be a special teams weapon...
With cap space at a premium, maybe the plan
to replace Peverley with Spooner?
Yeah, I love Peverley too.... but Horton is more of a necessity IMO... I was thinking Spooner as the 3rd line wine, with Kelly and Caron for next year. Not ideal, but such is life when the cap goes down 6 mil.
