How's that for a couple of non-Horcoff hating reason to like Horcs out and Gordon in.
I like Horcoff-out/Gordon-in if the team actually uses some of that salary cap space to bring in another legitimate NHL center and fill some of the rest of the gaping holes on the team.

So far, MacT's 'bold' off-season resembles Tambo's off-season a few years back where they brought in Eager, Belanger, Hordichuk, and Barker and allowed the team to enter the season with gaping holes.
