Good for Horc!
Good for the Oil too.
I'm thinking, barring injury, that Horcoff is a 90 point man next season.
What would he have gotten on the open market? Excellent two way centre, great face off man, hard worker, clutch player.
What did Marc Savard get?
I have no idea what Shawn Horcoff or Fernando Pisani are like in "real life" - the fan in me would love to think that they are the type of guy I would enjoy having a beer with.
May not be the case but good for both of them. They had to work for everything they could get in the NHL - they were not handed a thing. And both have come through. After Pronger and Roloson I'd say they were the main reasons the Oil got where they did.
So good on them.
And based on the past few seasons my guess is we have not seen the best from either of them yet.
Have been working on PEI for the last week and now for ten days off (life of leisure, eh?) including three away from the internet, TV etc etc.
Kevin, when I come back Tuesday night I expect that you will have shored up our D, signed Hemsky, Lupul and Stoll to reasonable contracts and assured this team of winning one more playoff game this upcoming season then they did this one past.
Not too much to ask, right?
