While I agree that our bottom six lacks size this year, and it bothers me, the Habs won't be selling Moen as a bottom sixer per se. They'll try to max out on his career numbers and the fact he's played most of the season with skilled forwards (and helped guys like Lars Eller and Andrei Kostitsyn, in particular).

If we want a bottom sixer, we should talk to Anaheim about George Parros. If we talk to Montreal, it should be about Kostitsyn, not Moen. I don't want to lose a second round pick on a bottom sixer...not when we need a winger for our second scoring line (whether Sid's on it or not).

EDIT: I just wanted to add that I actually like Travis Moen, a lot. He's not what we need, though. Not unless we start dumping smaller, similar types (like Matt Cooke, for example).
