We have no other reasonable options at this time.
Defensive zone draw, with 30 seconds left and we're up by one..... which one of the 40% faceoff, undersized, defensively questionable centers are you going to send out? Gagner? RNH? Lander?
No kidding. The hate Horcoff gets is crazy. If he was paid $3M/year, no one would be complaining. Considering we couldn't even get players to come here over the course of his contract to put us in cap problems, his contract wasn't even an issue.
