1st or 2nd rounder aside (Montreal was fine with ditching Cammy for Bourque; they aren't going to want a first for someone like Moen), no, it really doesn't.

I'm not much of a Moen fan, but if the choices are a fancy skill guy who will score 6-10 goals or a forechecking board player who will score 6-10 goals, the second guy's the more valuable and useful player. And not by a little bit, either. This is why guys like Stan Chistov wash out and guys like Ian Laperriere have long careers.
