For a website dedicated to prospects you'd think they'd have heard of Lack, Eriksson and Cannata.
It's amazing how clueless people on that board are. It's difficult to read given most of the posters act like 8 year olds, but they do get info sooner than most.
On Horvat, I've never seen him play but I like the sounds of a two way guy with good physical play and the upside to be an offensive guy. A player like him was needed, and given Gaunce, Jensen and Corrado are near ready at least there will be young players ready to contribute on cheap deals soon.
On the value received for Schneids - that I'm not sure about. If Horvat is all that then I'm happy, but it's a gamble. Schneids was a very good player for this team and AV loved him, but AV isn't here anymore. I'm still fine with trading him in theory, I'm just not sure this is the value I expected. The fact that Lu is still there as an elite goalie and Schneids would return something tangible means this trade makes sense, though it's a bit tough to stomach right now.
