Prucha
Lundqvist
Tyutin
Betts
Ortmeyer
Hollweg

and you could probably through in Hossa, Kondratiev and Immonen as well. Moore wasn't a pioneer or anything, so probably didn't need to make the comments.

Regardless, you'd hope it was all 'water under the bridge' from both sides
Not really an impressive list, especially when you weed out the guys that debuted post-lockout and Betts who started his career in Calgary. The Rangers were notorious for buying teams and not giving kids a real opportunity to break into the big club. In fact, I think our inability to build a team without a checkbook led to the demise of quite a few solid prospects. However, that's not really the point. We spent tons of money and got nowhere. Moore was right in his assessment.
