Moen can play a 4th line role but if you're going to pay him more than his current 1.5 mil cap hit, do you want 2-2.5 mil on a 4th line?
I agree with you. I think AK could get us a first round pick, but I'm not sure if that's worth more to us next year than AK himself. He'll probably want something like Ville Leino got, but a hometown discount could help us get him at 4/year.

As for Moen, looking at the UFAs coming up I think Taylor Pyatt could effectively replace him at 1.5/year. He doesn't fight, but he's big, he hits, and he puts up more points than Moen.
