I didn't want to split up the GSS line either but Horak with Backlund & Hudler would be too soft, it's the same reason I put Booth on the top line over Hudler. I think Glencross's physical attributes would be more of an asset when used in this way.

I am definitely open to other combos, but I think those are the most balanced (we could maybe swap Glencross & Booth, which I contemplated).

As for Horton, I would love to sign him, I just don't see it being possible. The only reason I think we could get Richards is because we can overpay on a short deal to let him re-establish his worth.
