Shawn Horcoff Scoring Chances 2010-2011

Shawn Horcoff's first year as Captain of a team built to land another lottery pick saw him play a well-defined role:  he was the defensively-responsible housesitter assigned to protect his own zone while the kids went gallivanting around the rink.  Horcoff played with fewer linemates than any other forward with as many games.  In a way, his housesitting duties rescued his reputation amongst Edmonton fans.  Prior to the season, the fan's book on Horcoff went something like this: "overpaid, useless, terrible, awful."  Now he's thought of in a completely different manner - he's the guy that allowed the kids to do their thing.

  • In games 21-30 and 41-50, Horcoff and friends were killing it.  At first glance, it seems like Horcoff, Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle were responsible for dragging the Oilers' team average up to respectability.

  • As I wrote in the opening - Horcoff had a very specifically-defined role - protect Hall and Eberle.  He was never subjected to the Renney/Injury blender.
