Horcoff doesn't hate Edmonton!

Or, at least, he doesn't appear to have any strong negative feelings about it, as is reporting that Shawn Horcoff (or, as I seem to recall Sac liked to call him, Score-coff) just avoided arbitration and brushed aside his UFA eligibility next year by settling on a three-year $10.8-million deal with the Oilers.

Some may say $3.6 mil a year for one good season is steep, but whatever — if Lowe just has to fire money out of a cannon in the direction of someone, it might as well be our de facto No. 1 centre. And from what we've seen, I doubt last year's tally of 22 goals and 73 points was an anomaly.

So yeah. Pretty good!

I like Horc hope he does not head for a nose dive this year. Keep getting out RFA's signed...

What did Marc Savard get? 4M?

What would Horcoff have been worth on the open market next summer? I'd take him over Savard any day.

Good signing!
