Go Go Canucks Go Posted August 4, 2013 Share Posted August 4, 2013 I know not everyone thinks this way, but a large portion of Canucks fans and hockey fans everywhere bash the Horvat pick, saying things like he'll never pan out, 3rd line player at best, terrible trade value, terrible pick, etc. PEOPLE NEED TO GET EXCITED! He can easily be a top 2 C in this league and potentially a #1. He had to work his way up the line up because he was on a deep and stacked london knights team since he got drafted by them. By the end of the year, he was their best player and that's nothing to scoff at. Not sure who made this video, but credit to him/her for making it! .It's the first video that highlights his high end talent. I know many people here haven't seen him other than the youtube highlights of his OHL season and playoffs, and those didn't really give a good sense of his puck handling skills. The fact is this kid has a lot more skill than people seem to know or give him credit for. His hands are severely underrated and his passing abilities are above average. This kid is Ryan Kesler minus the perceived bad attitude and diving essentially. The point out of this is that people shouldn't be negative about the trade, his perceived talent and understand that with time this kid will be a gem. Maybe people can get a little more excited about him as a Canuck because I sure am. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
