Well to be fair, the poster is an Obsessed Sharks Fan. :
Do you really think the drop-off between Moore and Murray is that much? I don't really think so. I think most Worcester folks would claim he's their best defensive defenseman.


That wouldn't be too bad a set of defensive pairings with some of Blake's shifts being taken by Demers would not be too bad. (The Sharks are going to be forced to have Moore on the big club two seasons from now, his contract for that year is one-way.)
I want to believe in Jason Demers over an 82 game season, but I can't. The kid has played well during the post season thus far, but during the regular season he goes through lapses where he's skating out of his assignment. There's a reason he was sent down multiple times this season.

Mike Moore may be a solid defenseman in the NHL, but he hasn't played in the NHL with any regularity. There will be an adjustment curve. He will make mistakes. To put him into a top 4 role would be a mistake.
