Obviously I would (much like everyone else here) want Dougie Hamilton, but I just don't see that happening. The bruins would probably want ROR + for him.

And Horton will never play another full season, IMO. He's going to be another Gomez or Redden that is pretty much done for as as a useful player once they get a couple years over thirty because of the mileage on his body.
