As others have mentioned, just imagine him flanking Thornton on the first line. I think that could be lethal.

I think he's got at least two good seasons left in him. If it were between us signing Semin or Doan I'd pick Semin every single time, but if Semin wanted more than was reasonable I think Doan could help a lot. He'd be a great leader and should put up respectable numbers. I still don't feel like he'll sign in SJ, though. With so many suitors I doubt DW would massively overpay for him.

That's true. I'll address the goaltending thing in my next comment.

But I would be excited to see them play.
Yeah, I think platooning Greiss and Stalock could work out. Sateri could definitely fight for one of those spots as well.

Agree for sure. I'm pretty confident DW won't outbid some other GM with a really stupid overpayment. Maybe he'll even bluff someone else a bit and make them believe he's gonna give up a ton, thus making them do just that to one-up him. That'd be great if we saw some of the DW that offer-sheeted Hjalmarsson and all that.

Oh, no, I was posting in reply to this

Maybe we should try it out while he is still under contract to us
Meaning Moore was signed by Nashville.
