The problem with trying to evaluate Horcoff is that he is constantly in arguably the single most difficult position in the NHL--play the best with the least support and the worst available teammates in the NHL.
Maybe if he was in a better organization like Boston or New Jersey, he would still not look very good. But frankly, nobody is going to have a good plus minus in front of the 2009-2013 version of Khabibulin.
Agreed on all points, and the Contract "ever present"
