What is Horvat? He sucks on the PK, not a set up man type centre, likes to bust down the wing and drive the net like a winger. He really isn’t your typical centre. I’m confused by Horvat, what is he?
I liken Horvat more as a power center now who thrives in pressure situations, clutch for the playoffs/post season/tournaments, a faceoff beast, and has the Canadian captain warrior mentality needed to help your squad win, definitely suitable for a #2C spot on a good team. I'd like to see him centering Baertschi and Virtanen again, all those three have some good chemistry with their skill sets.

Seriously SKYO? Hughes is our best chance at a #1 innit?
Q. Hughes legit will be an all-star, high scoring QB type for sure, but the more I think about it, maybe all the Canucks need is just a right shot big cannon like Salo, get a guy like that and Hughes working the points, that will stretch defenses thin on their penalty kill.

Go Penguins style, no true #1 dman (Letang is more #1b type), but had 2 high scoring dmen combined with some two-way dmen and a bulldozer dman for the rough stuff.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
