Horvat is NOT > Ritchie. At least not according to your HF write up on him, and I agree.

Shinkaruk MAY have a higher upside than Chiasson (i would accept that argument while disagreeing) except that Chiasson is all but 82 games proven, he has produced at every level including the nhl and is already arriving. That is, he is a sure thing plus player on the 2nd line, which is more valuable than a long-shot prospect, regardless of potential upside.

the point of course is that while Edler is better than Goligoski by a pretty good margin, he is not Chiasson and Ritchie better. He is not trade away your future better.
