But if we don't have anything to replace him with, like our 4th line center position at the beginning of the season, we will be in some trouble to start the next season.
I just don't get some people around here. Moen is a great dressing room guy, plays his heart out every game and most of you want to get rid of him. Josh Gorges is the defensive equivalent to Moen, why can't he get a fraction of the respect you guys give Gorges?
Checking wingers on the UFA market are a lot cheaper than good stay at home defensemen. I don't think any guys like Moen have ever signed for 4-4.5 mil(see Komisarek Michalek Regehr Hamhuis etc).
At the end of the day PG has to figure out what price makes sense for Moen and make his camp an offer, if they can geta reasonable deal done then keep him, otherwise you put him on the block and see what offers you get.
