<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>KSIxSKULLS</b></div><div>I'm just praying Columbus develops him right because he's one of the better players I've ever watched play for the Mooseheads. I've been spoiled, but he doesn't look a guy who would've made it to the 3rd round.</div></div>
Too many people got scared of his size, despite him being roughly the same size, if not slightly bigger than, players like DeBrincat, Caulfield, Point, and Gaudreau.
It’s already pretty clear he’s ready to move past the Q, so I imagine he’ll get some AHL time once his season is up; but, considering where this team is, and the abundance of Ws that are fighting for playing time as is, I doubt he gets rushed to the big club.
Depends on the extension, but I’d want Boqvist swapped for CC, preferably. The fit feels there for Horvat, but with Sillinger, Johnson, and whichever C this lottery team likely picks, I’m starting to feel more “meh” about a Horvat trade. I wouldn’t enter any sort of bidding war for him.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>HockeyIsMyPassion61</b></div><div>If i'm Horvat i ask for 8 years $9,000,000 per or sign elsewhere. Columbus cheap ownership would rather let good players walk before signing them for what they're worth. Laine and Werenski and Gaudreau are the exceptions i guess.</div></div>
Isn’t “Laine and Werenski and Gaudreau” what undermines the point that they’re cheap? Like, to the “exceptions that disprove the rule,” extent?
Either way, if CBJ’s reputation is to be cheap, then I am very happy to have not paid Bobrovsky, Johansen, and Anderson their contracts. And I would not want to give Horvat an 8 x $9M either. Good luck to the team that does.
