Lots of feelings were hurt when the former captain and longtime Canuck was moved to the Islanders. Bo Horvat made an emotional return to Vancouver where he shed a few tears, which showed how much he cared and how much the fans cared for him.

HORVAT'S DEPARTURE: A CANUCKS MISMANAGEMENT?

A long time friend, former roommate and now analyst, Frank Corrado added to the commentary of Horvat's return to Vancouver and absolutely scorched the organization. From his point of view, Horvat wanted nothing else then to be a Canucks for the remainder of his career and he believes that if the team's management would've known what they were doing, they would've found a way to make it happen:

"Bo Horvat wanted to be a Vancouver Canuck and nothing else for his career...he was surrounded by incompetence in the organization...the team lacked any kind of direction." #Canucks


Corrado pointed out that Horvat was fully invested in the franchise despite the fact that they were headed nowhere up until now. It does make a point in saying that, most of his time with the Canucks had been under Benning's mentorship and that the team had no concrete destination or direction and in spite of it all, he still wanted to be a Canuck:


BO COMMENTS ON THE CONTRACT TALKS

Horvat ended up adressing the way his contract negotiations and it clearly explains why this relationship went south:

«Just how it was all handled last year was upsetting, but I mean I couldn't be happier to be on Long Island.»


This saga is now history, seeing a player of Horvat's stature sure feels like a lost at first, but looking back on what the return ended up being, it's hard not to deem this transaction as positive for the Canucks and it's management.

Filip Hronek has been a stud since the season started and alongside Quinn Hughes, he's dominant as they're the Defenseman duo with the most points league-wide.
