Dominic Moore's thought on Rangers development

Moore, a third-round pick in 2000, signed with the New York Rangers and joined their AHL affiliate the Hartford Wolf Pack for most of two seasons. He played five games for the Rangers in 2003-04, getting three assists in his NHL debut – becoming only the second Rangers player to record three points in a first game.

After scoring 19 goals for the Wolf Pack in the lockout season in 2004-05, Moore earned a spot with the Rangers and played in all 82 regular-season games and four in the playoffs. Moore had nine goals and nine assists, playing mostly a fourth-line role with a plus/minus rating of plus-4.

Despite the strong season, Moore was dealt to Pittsburgh in a three-way trade with Nashville that netted the Rangers current Lightning forward Adam Hall.

“That’s the New York Rangers way,” Moore said. “It’s the toughest organization of all to break in with because, even more so before the lockout, they tend to buy players instead of developing them. To break in there was an accomplishment in itself.”
Give me a break Dom, the Rangers break in rookies every season. They simply saw you as expendable since you played on the 4th.
