Lots of hype around him prior to the season and I understand he is slotted in to play on the top line...how has he looked thus far? Will he stick on the top line or is the goal to get another winger via trade?
I tend to agree but I hope it doesn't take 20 games for the HAD line to gel (as in, we HAD a chance to make the playoffs but for the first 20 games) or for him to find his finish. Arnott and Dumont look generally like Slugo and Sleepy... I know they are vets saving it for the real games but judging from last night it isn't helping get them on the same page. Maybe Hornqvist should dog it for the next couple of games...
Setting aside the bitter taste from last night's debacle, I think Hornqvist is looking "as advertised". He doesn't look out of place in our top 5... uhhh....6.... and he generally has been playing a pretty strong, confident game. He still looks like he is feeling his way into it a bit so I expect further improvement.
I love Hörnqvist. He doesn't go around stirring things up like Pihlström does, but he's always in the right place at the right time. Once he starts burying shots, he's going to be a big-time force for us.
