Horcoff is having trouble on that line because he cant speak Czech. Hemsky and Sykora are like "jenom by ji nasytil nasladly" and Horcoff is like ***?...then he is fishing the puck out of the net. Now that Nedved is there he will reply to them with "casto docela schvalne dovoli svou!" and its a GOOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!!!
He had a pretty bad season last year, and has been injured this season, but to say he isn't any good IMO is not correct. I haven't seen a lot of him since he left Vancouver, but I thought he was playing pretty well for them. So far this season he is tied in points with our leading defensive point producers with 15 points, in only 23 games. Maybe you are setting your sites high with guys like Visnovsky and Stuart and the like....be prepared for disappointment, as Lowe already said he won't mortage the future and that's what it would probably take to get a true 1/2 D-man.
That doesn't say much about him. He's slow, not very strong and generally won't provide anything the Oilers don't already have. He's not very good.
