I agree but I just think if we were able to land him and play him on our second line with JVR and reunite Lupul and Kessel our top 6, despite having no true #1 center would be pretty scary. That is a big line that is hard to play against and it seems Horton can be a clutch player. And a three year deal doesn't scare me that much after two years if he doesn't pan out we could unload him to a cap floor team or something. Better than Grabo's 5 year deal lol.
I also do think Boston has too many other priorities and not enough space to resign him this off season and its a huge perk to me to have him play against Boston next year as well lol. Often players love to play against their old teams.
