There's no way that even if Moore gets the call, he'd play more than Nedved, Mess and Holik..

NOW, once Mess plays too much in the next month, and he goes down (I'm calling mid-november rib cage injury) then it might be time to bring in Moore or whoever is earning the spot from Hfd.. Not that I want to see Mess injured, but it will happen at this clip..
So why not have Moore come up and log some minutes to prevent another injury? I guess it's too forward thinking for the current staff.

I know that if Moore were called up, he would likely get less time than the other 3 centers, but that's one of the many problems of Sather. It's a waste to put Moore on the 4th line, but the center that is currently playing like a 4th liner makes too much and has too big a name to be dropped a line or 2. In all likelyhood, we see:
Hlavac-Nedved-Kovalev
Rucinsky-Messier-Lundmark
LaCouture-Holik-Carter
Simon-Rheaume-Barnaby
and not much changes from game to game.

Que sera sera
