Green is trying to turn Horvat into Travis Green. He isn't that, but he is a very good center. No way I trade him. There are so many options that Green doesn't experiment with. They can put Hovat on the first line between Pettersson and Tofolli. They and put Miller on a second line with Gaudette and Jake. There are a number of combinations that aren't tried because of Green's fixation with a shut down line. They have Sutter or Beagle for that. Why make Bo focus on a role he is not the best at. He is much better at pushing offence than sitting back and trapping the other team while the air thief sucks the passion for the game and life right out of him.

They wont trade Bo, CP. His number look terrible this year on paper but we know there's more to it than that. Like you say, Green doesn't
use him in a situation where he can succeed. Too much PK time and an over use of sending him out just to take face-offs. Just "that", has
altered the way he, not only plays, but the way he sees himself. That is on Green.
Now it can be argued that Tanner Pearson is totally having a career year but then why is his plus/minus so much better then Horvat's.?

Boeser can play with Horvat and Pearson as soon as he's back. Green shouldn't put Brock right back with Petrtersson just because they're friends.
I remember a time when Horvat and Boeser looked great.

Bo has averaged just 25 seconds per game on the PK (3:44 0n the PP).
