His height was an issue, being 5-5 but he was exposed in that dreadful 1979 playoffs series against the Rangers. Remember the image of him climbing the glass at MSG chasing a Rangers' fan who spit at him after one of the PO games? Pat Quinn said after the game, something like "They threw money at me and I collected $20."

The Flyers acquired Phil Myre that summer as the vet replacement for Wayne Stephenson and Pete Peeters won the role as the second goalie beating out Moore and Rick St. Croix.

As an aside, the only game Moore played in for Washington, he came off the bench and gave up a goal to Brian Propp in a game against the Flyers and suffered the loss.
