DownUndaCanuck Posted October 31, 2015 Share Posted October 31, 2015 Horvat is being called on to shutdown top teams scorers and he's simply not that good yet. WD has him out there trying to shut down Benn and Seguin - good bloody luck.People forget that Horvat is still a kid, we should be sheltering him a little bit instead of throwing him out there like that. If anything, use Sutter as our shutdown center over Horvat. It could pay off in that Horvat learns to play against real scorers, but right now it's got to be destroying his confidence, being scored on time and time again.The kid isn't ready for those responsibilities, we should just be using him as a tertiary scorer/3rd line center, but instead WD is pushing him. It'll be interesting to see which way Horvat responds, he's got the character to step up to the plate but these are some world-class scorers he's going up against and he's clearly not ready for that sort of responsibility.
