You say he faced weak competition? It didn't matter who the flames had on the ice in the playoffs, he was still their best player and impactful.

I'm not saying Horvat is the better player, I'm saying its a lot closer than you think.
And to reiterate, your point continues to largely hinge on the fact you think it might be a closer comparison in the future / moving forward.

Regardless of everything you just said, it is not an accurate comparable at present.

The difference in minutes, points, and quality of competition is too far apart.

Until such time, it's still extremely premature to contend Horvat is on Monahan's level. Period.
