<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BlueSeeker</b></div><div>Barrie is in his prime and Horvat hasn't reached that yet. Horvat is kind of like Bergeron 2.0. He's a core piece that you build around. You are not suppose to trade away players like that just because "there is an extension in place" for a guy that is one year from becoming a UFA. Try to actually understand the position that Vancouver is in right now. The nucks are still rebuilding and not ready to compete yet, so it is plain stupid to trade for a guy in his prime when your other younger players haven't reached that point yet. You cant just say "me avs fan, horvat fill our need, we trade barrie and make van add because barrie better and extension". You have to look at both sides and say to yourself "does this make sense for both parties". If Van trades Horvat, who is going to be that reliable two way 2C for them? Are they suppose to just shove Gaudette in that role and hope everything works out?</div></div>

Well done man. Great explanation. VAN is rebuilding as well. Ignoring the Horvat and Barrie exchange, no way we're trading out 10th OA pick unless we're moving up or gaining more pieces and moving down. Horvat is a fan favourite, captain material player. Barrie is a great RHD im gonna admit that, but we don't need him right now. We just re-signed Edler, we have Q.Hughes, who knows if we might go after Myers, but i know we have Woo coming up. A Bergeron type 2-way player is important than a offensive RHD.
