He was unable to return to the contest after the fight and did not play on Sunday afternoon against the Florida Panthers. It reamins to be seen when he will return. Head coach Claude Julien stated that he doesn't want to put Horton back into the lineup until he is 100 percent.

Maybe just an "excess" of caution in anticipation of the playoffs?

Is Boston set as the three seed or can they move up or down?

I saw nothing but bad news when I saw Horton start to fight. GM is right (quote #2), sit him until the playoffs. As for Quote #4, 26 goals for, 22 goal against, 11 out of 20 points for the last ten games, not great at all but we are in the games for the most part. We did that in the playoffs when we won the cup.

Seriously, agree it's good to keep him off until bigtime starts.
