2012-13 is a transition year. Bergevin is focusing on 2013-14.

Think back to the Moen-Eller-AK46 line. It was great for Eller. In contrast, a Palushaj-Leblanc-Eller line would be a disaster for all three.
I totally agree with end of your post, Moen is a useful veteran. I'm glad to have him in the lineup next season instead of a rookie. But what are the odds that 32 year old Moen will be the same player? If Bergevin was buiding towards 2014-15, wouldn't the smart play be to patch that spot over a shorter term, and find a 28 year old version in a couple of years? There are still plenty of veteran forwards available who will be signing shorter deals.
