This is where PG (or whomever) job gets difficult. We need to restock our system, which means draft picks, but we also need to field a competitive team with not much wiggle space in cap. I like Moen and I'd like to see him on our team in the role he's built for 4th line energy and PK time.
We'd get a 2nd round pick, but it won't be very high. I could see doing a deal with Vancouver, who could use a guy like him to maximum effect.
If he'll extend for 2-3 years at 1.5 per, then done. We'd be better team today if we'd offered Moore a reasonable contract.
I'm also going to assume we won't be able to move any of our contracts. Hal Gill will be gone for sure and probably AK. I'd like to offer AK an extension too, but I doubt we can afford it.
