It's completely impossible to judge this without looking at Horton's past. This argument works against itself very well.

There is far more focus on the former then the latter, especially here. This is true for all players, and has led to some classics such as "Kovalchuk is washed up", "Recchi needs to be waived", and "Thomas is an at best backup goalie". If there were more focus on the latter what he's done in the past takes center stage and at that point you realize Horton is a 60+ point player who is recovering from a nasty concussion.
