Moen can handle himself but he seems to have slowed down in the fighting department in the last two season whereas Thorbs still goes about 10 times a season.
I only mention this because one reporter from Montreal between periods last night had him on a list of four potential candidates or aquisition targets. Also Winnipeg and montreal's GM's worked together in Chicago and are familiar with each other.
Not saying he will step in and blow out guys but he would add toughness and play a regular 4th line shift.
I've always liked Chris Thornburn...this is the kind of player the Habs could use. He can handle some of the bigger guys and hold his own, but more importantly, he would take some of the heat off Prust
Furthermore, he can take a regular shift without hurting you...more than decent skater.
