He's so much more effective when he's moving, but he does an awful lot of standing around. And he's become far too easy to move off the puck. I just don't see what unique skill set he brings anymore.

If there is one, help me see it.
How about scoring goals? I get many of his goals looked easy, but getting into the right spots to score those goals is a skill that not everyone has.

I get that many don't like Horton, but who are you going to replace him with? Unless there is a plan to replace Horton I don't see how we can let walk and leave a huge hole in our top six.
