Anything to make TML foolish is good imho. They buy out Grabo, fail to sign Lecavalier, fail to sign Weiss.. and now maybe they'll be forced to give a stupid contract to Bozak. Sure they got Bolland and still have Great Leader Kadri but they still have a hole at center.
Horton is being underrated. He's been consistent since Florida. He's a good player that brings up his level in important games.
He was inconsistent (but young) in Florida. I wanted to Habs to trade for him then, but I have to admit that he became a better fit with Boston. Not sure he would have been as good in Montréal had he been brought in 3-4 years ago.
It's all a question of environment.
As for now: Horton might not thrive in this new environment. Different style of play and all. Colombus might finally be getting there, but they're not the Bruins, that's for sure. He becomes the de facto top dog on that team (Gaborik is UFA next year). He might have signed in a smaller/lighter market, but all eyes will be on him.
