Of course, you're going to defend Moore, because you an HMO fan. Moore is 27 years old, he has peaked offensively, he's not really that sound defensively, cannot throw a hit to save his life and when he does, bounces off the opposition. And to add to it all, he's not a checking player. He can't shut down the opposition's top center. Oh yeah, one more thing, he can't win faceoffs, and he's supposed to be a natural center. He's borderline useless.

Betts can at least win faceoffs, and his defensive sense is FAR better than Moore's. He's also a much better penalty killer. Some people view Moore as a good penalty killer, he's decent, he looks good because he's got Ortmeyer with him, who's one of the better penalty killers in the league for my money. Just can't handle the puck to save his life.
