I think the expectation at the time he was drafted was that Moore was going to be a bit more offensive oriented. I don't think Skjei is really seen as having a higher offensive ceiling (or at least he shouldn't be seen that way).

Skjei also figures to be significantly bigger than Moore is at this stage in his development. Probably in the 220-230 range, to go along with his 6'3/6'4 frame.

Skjei is a two-way defenseman who's biggest strength is going to be his ability to read and react. His skating may lead some people to place unfair expectations on him, but if they appreciate him for what he is capable of, playing sound defense, they will not be disappointed.
