Cap Hit: $5,500,000
Contract Clauses: NMC (through 2012-13); NTC (for 2013-14, starting July 1, 2013, player can provide list of 10 teams to which he will accept a trade); no NMC/NTC for 2014-15.
Shawn Horcoff is the Captain of the Edmonton Oilers and I don’t see them moving him soon.
One because they love him, and two because no one in their right mind would absorb his contract and all of the clauses that come with it.
Horcoff is locked up through 2015 and he will make over $5 million each year. He is a solid two way forward with a knack for being in the right position. With that said, he’s not worth what he is being paid.
The real problem I have is the clauses in the contract. He has a no movement clause and a no trade clause that will enable him to control his own future in Edmonton.
