Neither of those players have very many NHLers playing with them. Horcoff is fine as a third line centre. Smyth can play on a fourth line for another year.

I was trying to say of all 2nd line centers, he's top 10 offensively, but you just bettered my point.
Hjalmarsson being 2nd in ES ice time doesn't mean he's their #2 defenseman, it means he can't play a lick of offense to see any sort of PP time. If you want to argue than Seabrook is Chicago's #3 defenseman, that's a battle you'll lose 10 times out of 10.
Maybe he's a #3 d-man instead of a #4 d-man, but a #3 defensive defenseman that can't hit is still not even close to getting a top 20 offensive center. If he was a puck-moving defenseman that's a different story.

No he isnt
No he cant

No team that expects to make the playoffs would have either of those guys playing those positions.

I agree. But I think Horcoff could probably be okay as the 4th line center if Smyth retires. Just need some fast, physical wingers with him maybe.

I wouldn't mind RNH-Gagner-Monahan-Horcoff on the charts with another year in OKC for Lander. Ideally trade Gagner and either trade for a bigger #2C or sign a Ribeiro for 1 year to shelter RNH's minutes.
