I don't consider him a puck-moving d-man as compared to others I have seen in my lifetime. In today's NHL where the term is used more loosely, yes, he is.

Also, Scott Gomez was a playmaking center as a UFA. He got to the Rangers and didn't look much like one to me.

Watching a player everyday shows a lot. Scouting a player is great, but most scouts can't watch every game of every league of every year. Not enough time and people.
