I remember reading here the posts that people said they would love to have a tough guy as long as he could play sound hockey, score goals and still fight. We have him. His name is Travis Moen and people are ready to trade him for a pick that may lead to nothing.

Sign Moen now to a 2 or 3 year contract.
Exactly, plus the guy is doing an underrated defensive job I mean he is like the second or third best defensive forward on the team playing massive minutes on the PK with Plekanec along with all the qualities you're also giving the guy. He would be better if he isn't as much use in a first or second line role which is clearly not his game and he doesn't look as good when the coach put him in that situation. Also he would be more effective on the physical part of the game if he would always play with guys like White, another forward of that type (Gaustad, Prust, Thornton, Asham, Kostopoulos) and if Habs add a big physical beast on the defensive position (Allen, Murray) that would make the team grittier and Moen wouldn't be alone doing the dirty job.
