Horc doesn't care, if he did we'd see more of that 95-100% effort from him rather than the 90% and less effort we've seen these last 5 yrs. The guy's a gluteous maximus.
How much time did Moreau spend on the 1st line in his days as an Oiler? How about 2nd line? Moreau's cap hit was never close to $5.5M a year and he was never leaned on as a major contributor the way Horcoff was supposed to be. Geez guys what's so hard to understand about this? Do you also remember that Moreau was waived? If your plan is to reduce Horcoff to a 4th line role, just buy him out and sign a cheap centre for the 4th line.
