I always think teams should be very careful with players coming off of Back, shoulder, or knee surgeries.

 

But if it is C-bus, go ahead, suck ass!

 

I do like Davidson as a gm though!

WOW his wife is one hot chick guess she's always running around in such skimpy skirts so maybe another readon why he wants to play in a warmer climate. Jackets would reeallybe afeatfit forhim he is a warrior and will bring in that winner mentality.

Rumor has it that Horton won't be ready to play until December.


Well so much for the reports that Horton would only sign with a "warm weather" team.

 

Did you note the "nobody will confirm this" and "but I believe" in that statement?

Sportsnet is reporting Horton signed with Columbus.

 

7 Year deal, no money value yet.

That's a lot of years for someone with his history, in my opinion.

Nathan Horton's deal with CBJ is 7 years, $37.1 ($5.3 AAV) but he gets $30M in first 5 years.

Pretty good hit, actually. Ignoring his health issues. Had to bite on an extra year to get it, though.

Too long of a contract.

 

Great job Columbus.

That's a big risk on an injury-prone player with a history of concussions. The guy is having shoulder surgery in the offseason, to boot.

Nathan Horton will undergo shoulder surgery this summer. Expected to be sidelined until December.

Alright, here is a $40 million dollars.

Okay thanks.... BRB, shoulder surgery.

Slightly too long of a contract, but then again I think Columbus fans could do with familiar faces
