Horvat has a balance to his offensive game that Kesler never has had. He can pass, shoot or dangle but more importantly he has a fantastic sense of when to choose between those abilities. Kesler is pretty clearly a guy who thinks shoot first/drive to the net and his passing is developed from that thought process. He plays a simple offensive game that succeeds because of his skating, shooting, and all around physical ability. Bo looks like he can approach offensive situations more dynamically, considering a wider range of options.
