    Unreal. Sometimes you just gotta let guys go. 7 years is just insane, and we don't even know the $$ yet.

    I said way back when he wanted his one big pay day.   

    He earned it but one hit from lala land.  Good luck never winning anything again.

    I hope Columbus fans don't think they are getting Nash 2.0

    Good for him. I hope the character assassinations can stop now too. I don't know the dollars but I do know there's no way in hell that PC was offering Nathan that type of job security. Thanks for everything Nathan. Good luck.

    He wanted a quieter life. I guess the pressure of competing for a Stanley Cup got to be too much.

    Quieter life? Get paid that money and just try to eek by Detroit, Pittsburgh, Boston, MTL, Washington, NJD, Toronto, Rangers, etc, etc, etc in the new world order that is Eastern Conference 2013-2014.

    I like Horton a lot as a player, but that's waaaaaay more pressure than if he signed something more reasonable right here in Boston, surrounded by warm fuzzy blanket binkies Lucic and Krejci.

    I wish him luck. #18 gets a tip of the cap. Moving on.

    Good for Horton, That guy was an awesome guy and awesome player for the B's. Sad to see him go but best of luck.

    Good for him.  Good for the fans of Columbus.  Now I can understand a little more why he moved on from here.  No way was Chiarelli giving him a seven year deal.

    That's about job security Hang. He could've got 6 from someone for less years. Now he's closer to his family for the next 7 years.

    Similar to Ryder.  I never really liked him.  Similar streaky play.  Enjoy resting your arm.  enjoy your family.

    True dez job security is a better way to put it and I don't blame him for leaving for a chance to realize financial security for the rest of his life.  I'm a family man and would do the same thing for mine.  But from a career perspective and what he wants to accomplish professionally, he's taking easy street.

    Hang, let's revisit this at the end of the season when we find out if Horton has helped them become a playoff team. I like the direction that team is heading in.

    Wow. 7 years in Columbus. Enjoy your time in central Ohio, Nathan. You can buy all the pastrami and kosher pickles you want at Katzinger's. One thing is for sure, you won't have to worry about all the big bad pressure of playing in a town that truly cares about hockey.

    Thank you for your time in a B's uni, consider the page turned.

    Horton? Still only think of 'Tim' when I hear that name. We'll miss him when he's on form in sunny Columbus. Hope his operation goes well so he can return to play hockey in December.

    Classic response....Katz's is good deli here in CBus.....I was just talking with my dad the other day and mentioned CBJ should take a run at Horton and what do ya know.....I just hope they dont hype him up like they do every other player they sign....Man, when RJ Umberger was signed, they plastered his face up all over like he was the real deal, the next Gretzky......Well, the fans bought it, because they were clueless.

    Hortons a good pick up for the BJ's. I think if they get a couple more players of caliber, they just may make the playoffs.
