First, Horvat isn't big. He's listed at 6'0 IIRC, which is only an inch taller than Gagner. Not ideal for the Oil.


Second, Monahan isn't the kind of guy that impresses in an all-star game. He's not flashy, but a consistent, 2-way player who does little things like steadily winning draws. He's also 6'2 and plays a power forward's game from all accounts.


A Nuge-Monahan 1-2 punch down the middle is a dream come true. Both deliver good offense, take care of their own end, and make everyone around them better.
