Unfortunately, he also has Prucha's stats.

That's is not even close to realistic. Besides, if you ever did manage to pull that off
be prepared for no free agent to ever sign here again.

Because he hasn't proven anything in this league and the idea is to upgrade the those lines.

That's the other reason.

but neither is Avery and Avery wants 3(no...make that 4 Mill/yr..***) I like avery but in my eyes he was the proverbial bottled lightning the big $ contracts go to players that stay healthy and he couldn't even crack 60 games this regular season let alone 80... Moore w/ increased responsibilities could easily crack 10-15 goals and play a physical presence on any line...He is smart w/ the puck on the defensive side and can at the very least pass the puck...instead of getting guys who have "name" recognition" I'd like to see the team get a pair of leading dmen and let the forwards battle for spots...

He's not a free agent.
