There are many players who have followed the money, and ended up regretting it. I have no idea what makes Horton tick, or what's most important to him, beyond the fact that he's close to Lucic, and their wives are close friends as well, and that he has a couple of young children (I believe the oldest is probably in school now). But I think any sort of decision about his future with the team will be about more than money.
At the end of the day, its a business for both parties.
If it makes business sense, a deal will be struck. If not, it won't.
