Horton has been inconsistent to start his pro career but put in a different position may turn into the 40-40 powerforward every team covets. Factor in contract length and age and IMO Nathan Horton would hold a bit more value.
With that said, top pairing defensemen are extremely valuable and hard to come by. Toronto should be able to get a very hefty return if Tomas is made available.
