His comments about the Rangers were just reinforcing a sweeping generalization which was untrue. As some other posters said, they started a youth movement around the 2004 deadline and every year have added at least 2-3 players.
The whole "Rangers don't have patience with their youth and sign everyone to large contracts" is a stereotype from the dreadful years. It's just people hating the Rangers for the sake of hating them. That's why I'm annoyed with Moore's comments. If he does want to come back, it's fine at this point.
In exactly what context was it untrue? He was drafted in 2000 and left the team after the 2005-2006 season. Do we really have to bring out the list of prospects traded and underachievers signed or traded for during that time period?
