So far he has been Craig Janney of the Bruins-perimeter skill forward who thrives in the open non physical game. I would say what the Rangers really lacked the last couple of years are players that drive to the net aggressively without abandon. It always seems to be the Ranger's goalie that have two opposite forwards landing on them crashing into them. Its about time ,we do the same.
Problem is that Marchant was a much better defensive player and Janney was in a different league in terms of offense.
But therein is the problem with Moore, as of right now he just doesn't seem to have a strong enough trait on either side of the puck that translates into an NHL game.
That doesn't mean he def. won't be a player, but at 24 it will take a toll on his odds and subsequently his ranking.
