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.
Horvat plays a completely different game than Gagner. He's extremely strong on his skates. Couture is 6 feet, O'Reilly is 6 feet. You're talking about the same kind of player here, I have no problem saying or predicting that. Horvat plays a full complete centre game that is hard as hell on the puck "from all accounts." Discounting him because he is 6' might be the biggest mistake you can make.
