Putting up points and playing well can be two completely different things. In Florida Horton floated, he took nights off, etc. He put up points because a) he played a heck of a lot and b) has some skills that are elite and basically guarantee him a certain level of production at the NHL level. But that doesn't mean he played well or was an effective player.

If the Jets signed Horton to a contract at his market value this summer and Florida Horton is what they got, it would be a disaster.
