I think this is a great deal. I thought he would get more. $4.25 for a 25-30 goal scorer is great. He's a team first player and has more heart and drive than probably anyone else on the team. He does work that no one else wants to do in front of the net. He's also a great emotional leader. He's always patting guys on the back and giving them encouragement on the bench and getting them fired up with his energy.

He's probably the most emotionally invested guy on the team, and you can see how much the other guys appreciate the effort that Hornqvist displays on every shift.
To quote Rich Clune, that is "100% no lie"!

So are we, Patrick, so are we.

You gotta love this guy- so great to hear those words after all of the crap and drama we've been through regarding players not wanting to play here......
