Horvat vs Nichushkin will be an interesting debate for years I suspect.
Once you get outside of the top 5 picks or so it becomes a bit of a crapshoot as to who is the better player to pick. I'm satisfied that Gillis made an informed decision as to who the better player was and I'm ok with the decision regardless of how it turns out.
The real issue with me is Schneider vs Horvat. I know the deal was more complicated than that but I still believe that we needed to get more than a 9th overall pick (be it Nichushkin or Horvat) to part with Schneider. That's more the issue for me than the Nichushkin vs Horvat debate, even though that will be interesting to look at over the years.
