*Buzzsaw* Posted January 7, 2015 Share Posted January 7, 2015 I know he wasn't the focus of the play tonight, and he didn't get any points, but I still get a smile everytime I see Bo Horvat go into the corner or along the boards. Every game he gets a little better at taking the puck away, every game he gets a little better at coming off the boards and making a play. The guy is a rock... even when the opposing player is bigger than him, he will still make it a contest and at least half the time he gets control. I especially loved it this game when one of the bigger Islanders tried to push him around intimidate him, and he gave it back 150%, in fact fought him to a draw in the wrestling match, got control of the puck, made a play and then was in position in front of the net for a pass. I have yet to see one single veteran 4th line tough guy get anywhere trying to physically manhandle him. He just shrugs it off... he's not chippy like Dorsett, but anybody who runs into him knows immediately how strong he is... and they just don't push it. This kid is 100% upside for me... He's gonna be one of my favourites for a LONG time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
