Union and Blue’s Matt Sexton covered the the signing of Nathan Horton and had this to say;

Despite my concerns, this was a move that Columbus needed to make. The Jackets needed to add to the scoring punch. With Horton playing alongside Marian Gaborik (who is in a contract year), the offense should take a huge jump forward. An improved offense to go with Sergei Bobrovsky and the defense could mean not only a playoff appearance in the East this season, but a playoff run.

Union and Blue’s Peter Dewar looked into the free agency market, and discussed the potential signing of Nathan Horton;

His gritty style may not produce record goal totals, but it provides a spark for his team. When Horton battles in the corner, his teammates feel as though they must match his intensity and passion, and that ultimately leads to success.

Enough about what we think, what do you think of the signing of Nathan Horton for CBJ?
