Agree with everything that your saying, expect your underselling him as a 3c. He might not be the best or most skilled yes, but for what he brings to our team he is certainly top ten. Look at the 3rd line centers in the rest of our division:

Vancouver: watching thats hockey tonight they were talking about how they are struggling to find someone to play that role, its listed as chris higgins.

Colorado:Ryan O'Reilly, okay he sort of ruins my argument

Minnesota:Kyle Brodziak

Calgary:Matt Stajan

Elsewhere around the league:Chris Kelly (BOS),Matt Hendricks (WASH),Marty Reasoner(NYI),Andrew Shaw (CHI), JT Miller (NYR),Brandon Sutter (PIT),Gabriel Dumont?? (MTL),Nazem Kadri (TOR), Riley Nash (CAR).

In that list Horcoff is right up there, he is very valuable to our team and our record with and without him this year shows that.
