SK or Hornqvist

Ok so with all the deadline talk about us acquiring a player via trade we see a lot of proposal/packages involving either Sk or hornqvist. i wanted to see who you guys would keep? Whose bags would you pack for that top6/top3 forward. Why?

On the poll, vote for who you would KEEP.

keep horns, lose sk.

horns is already bought and I feel GMDP knows how to go out and find another SK but a powerforward that will take a beating every shift, every night for an entire season is not something we can easily pick up as a cheap reclamation project.

if we are trading one of those two it would only be for a significant offensive upgrade, and that person would presumably replace SK's skillset better than Horns.

They are interchangeable in a trade scenario. Hornqvist has the benefit of another year on his contract, SK remains unsigned for next season but has a more complete game. It isn't a choice we get to make ... the market will dictate which of them, if any, gets moved.

is SK an RFA after next season?

I do think his scoring prowess would be missed, but Hornqvist is part of this team's core and IMO could put up better numbers as his career progresses.

I think we should try to retain SK no matter what, as he could help entice A Rad to return and is about the only sniper on the team.

SK is a RFA this summer.

Hornqvist has one skill ... standing in front of the net providing screens and deflections/rebounds. SK is a sniper who rarely pulls the trigger.

this...

With that being said, if we don't make a trade for a skilled player, I'd say SK>Horns

agreed. SK plays in all situations...PP, PK, ES. I love Horny, and I ultimately think we should\will keep both, but he's a pretty ineffective player at ES, and will never see a PK shift.

After Hartnell left we found ourselves wondering where that garbage goal scorer was going to come from. The 07-08 and 08-09 seasons lacked that aspect severely. Hornqvist immediately ended that issue and has proven himself invaluable for it. SK is a good young offensive weapon but we can replace that. If someone LIKE a Radulov-type player comes back/comes along we would never even think about SK again. The intangibles and grit that Horny brings fits our team and I really hope he's with us for awhile.

How about we keep both and find someone else to move?

It would all depend on who is coming back to the Preds in return.

SK is the better player overall, but if we're perusing a skilled top 3 type of forward then I'd feel comfortable with SK going the other way. Either way, one of these two guys will end up shifting down in the lineup. Horns seems to fit the mold of a bottom 6 forward more so than SK, and I value his physical presence.

Depends who is brought in. If a Parise type player is brought in, Horns goes. If a Hemsky type player is brought in, SK goes.

Both these players are frustrating at times though. Horns because he handles the puck like a live grenade and is easy to separate from the puck. SK because he refuses to shoot at times and can be invisible for long stretches.

I feel like you almost have to keep Horns because of our PP success though. That's one area we don't want to mess with.

For the rest of this season, definitely neither if it can be avoided.

IMO, that move is a lateral one at best. Hemsky is an injury waiting to happen and SK's best years should be ahead of him.

Id rather have SK also. His game is very well rounded and I think Hornqvists skill set is easily replaceable. In reality all he does is park his ass in front of the net, get Webers rebounds, and take a beating. I think we can find someone who fits that criteria easier than a legitimate skill set like actaully passing/wrist&slapshots/vision. Im not trying to downplay Horny but thats just how i see it.

this would be the best scenario possible. But if we were to acquire someone of a high caliber we may need to ship one off for salary reasons...

I voted to keep Hornqvist. Any talent we bring in would more easily replace what we lose in SK's skillset.

SK has lazy tendencies.

I have a feeling he could become more lazy when/if he signs a longer-term deal and he's not motivated by a contract year.

Hornqvist for me.

If he were lazy he wouldn't be on the PK.

there's a stigma and a reputation that's attached to SK that he'll never shake, in the eyes of some.

he's done everything right since joining the team. "lazy" doesn't begin to describe him, but he'll never get the respect he deserves.

SK lost a lost of respect due to the fact that he went silent in the playoffs last year. when the Van series one or two goals was the difference in winning and loosing his lack of production was needed but shyed away from the contact and became invisible ever since until recently

tell me who was on fire during that series? That whole line got shut down by the number one ranked defense in the NHL. Not to mention that SK was playing hurt after taking a questionable hit in the Ducks series.

You've been anti-SK since the day the trade was made.

Tell that to Peterson who called him out for his up and down effort.

Do you have a link to that? SK has played through three separate, moderately serious injuries. He's done everything Trotz has asked since day one, said all the right things--even completely shrugged off the NHLPA's ploy to make him into a UFA that likely would have been in demand--just because he loves it in Nashville so much.

I just don't get why there's so much skepticism.
