Because of the system the Coyotes played, Gordon was part of a rolling system where nearly all of the top 9 faced about the same amount of tough minutes on the ice. For the past four years Horcoff played nearly all the tough minutes. We will have to see how Gordon re acts to the wear and tear that comes with replacing Horcoff. The key will be winning on the DOT and if he fails there, he will fail everywhere and will be the whipping boy early and often.
I would love to see someone take a part Horcoff without bringing up his cap hit. Gordon is getting paid 9mill over the next 3 years while Horcoff is getting 7 over the next 2-- next season both players will be getting the same money
Looking at those player usage charts suggests otherwise.
