Shawn Horcoff needs some PR help. In a recent article published in the Calgary Herald, Craig Conroy is quoted as stated the following: “Nothing against Horcoff, but $7 million for Horcoff, $7 million for Jarome?”
The numbers to remember when it comes to Shawn Horcoff are 5.5 (that’s the cap hit) and and 1 (that’s the number of people on the roster who can do what he does).
Shawn Horcoff is a fine NHL player and it is amazing to me that someone like Craig Conroy feels comfortable taking shots like this one. I expect it’ll pass through the electronic media without mention, but in this one little corner of the Al Gore let it be said that Shawn Horcoff and his contract are one thing this hockey team shouldn’t worry over.
