Certainly true. Guess we'll find out, if Horvat becomes a 40 point player with great defense, and Nich goes 70 - that's where things become a bit more clear-cut.

People need to stop seeing a bias where there isn't one. Any poster on here can come to their own conclusion without being beholden to Gillis's viewpoint. Just like you have with regards to Nichushkin. It is possible.
That wasn't necessarily directed at you, but I do see a lot of posters justifying some of the poor organizational moves made over the past few years.

As for this particular decision - I recognize that it's currently personal preference, only time will tell whether it was the right move or not.
