Moss played C the prior season, didn't he? I thought he spent most of 11-12 with GlenX and Joker during the rare times he was healthy. On Jokinen: he's done a very good job of transforming himself, and I don't disagree with your assessment of him defensively. I'm just saying that Backlund is better than he is through the d-zone and neutral zone (although he could certainly use a little more strength).
