Yes I did coach.
Having a winger cover an opposing winger is in no part part of a 'normal' (certainly not an Art Ross winning) wingers responsibility.

Comparing the likes of a checking, shadowing at times (i.e - Hull), winger like Provost to Moore is laughable.

If you really think that ANY part of Moore's defensive responsibility (such as it was), was covering opposing right wingers you are beyond help. That type of extreme defensive realigning is a hyper-speciality that can ONLY be called shadowing. He did what scoring wingers always do. Covered his point man and tried to give his center and/or d-men a target to pass to out of the zone.
