No kidding. I'm always amazed at how some folks overlook this or claim it's because they're somehow not allowed to play 'their game'. Having one easily-ignored goon stapled to the bench or watching from the PB does not make a team tough or hard to play against. Size, skill and good systems play make teams hard to play against. Hordichuk didn't help in even one of those categories. He seems like a nice enough guy (though a bit of a clown) but he's made millions of dollars despite being almost entirely useless as an NHL hockey player. I won't waste my time wishing him well. He's already done well for himself.
